~A Lot Like Love...Week-End


The week-end is here again my dear bloggers. So what treat do I have for you? How about "A Lot Like Love"?
While flying from Los Angeles to New York, the "good boy" Oliver Martin (Ashton Kutcher) meets the "bad girl" Emily Friehl (Amanda Peet) and they have sex in the restroom. They stay together along the day in New York, when Oliver discloses the planning of his life - his future career, successful job and then raising a family. He gives the phone number of his mother to Emily and asks her to call seven years later to check. For seven years, they occasionally meet each other, and in the end, their relationship becomes love.

With A Lot Like Lemon Sobet....|

Lemon Sorbet

From Country Living
This recipe has been tested by Country Living

INGREDIENTS conv. chart U.S. Metric
10 sprig(s) mint, stemmed
4 teaspoon(s) mint sprigs, finely chopped
3 sprig(s) thyme
3 cup(s) sugar
3 cup(s) lemon juice
1 teaspoon(s) lemon zest, finely grated
DIRECTIONS

1. Combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in three small saucepans. Add the mint leaves to one pan and the thyme sprigs to another. Bring all three to a boil, remove from the heat, and steep for 12 minutes. Strain each steeping mixture into a separate bowl, stir 1 cup lemon juice into each, and cool completely. Process each batch separately -- starting with plain and ending with thyme -- in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions for sorbet. Stir the finely chopped mint into the mint-infused sorbet once it has set. Stir the lemon zest into the plain lemon mixture when it has set. Place a film of plastic wrap directly on the sorbet surface in an airtight container and freeze until firm -- about 1 hour.

TIPS & TECHNIQUES

In your quest for great zest, seek lemons that are plump and heavy for their size. Bright yellow fruits with glossy, fine-grained skin are the juiciest. Timesaver: Slightly soften 2 cups of your favorite lemon sorbet and stir in the finely chopped mint or fresh-grated lemon zest.
