~Shall We Dance...Week-End

After a finals and a trip home to see the family. I finally have time to share a week-end movie blog with you all. Hope you enjoy!
"Shall We Dance"
A romantic comedy where a bored, overworked Estate Lawyer, upon first sight of a beautiful instructor, signs up for ballroom dancing lessons.

"Shall We Dunk? Biscotti "

1 7.4 oz package chocolate chocolate chip muffin mix
2 tbsp extra light olive oil
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup dried cherries, roughly chopped
1 cup milk chocolate chips for dipping


In a medium bowl, cream together oil, butter and sugar. Mix in egg and vanilla. Add muffin mix, stir well, and fold in nuts, white chocolate chips and cherries. On a parchment lined cookie sheet, flatten dough with greased fingers, into a 9 X 4 inch flat log about 1/2 inch thick. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove, slice into 10-12 pieces, cut on the diagonal, and turn pieces on one side. Cook 5 minutes, flip to the other side and cook 3-5 more minutes. Stay alert and watch carefully so edges do not burn. Cool completely and dip into melted chocolate chips.

Grace...Diana ..Albert...William

I find it interesting the two Royal Wedding have happen this year to two sons that tragically lost their amazing, lovely mothers.

First there was Grace Kelly the Princess of Monaco. She died on September 14, 1982, when she lost control of her automobile and crashed after suffering a stroke. Her daughter Princess St├ęphanie, who was in the car with her, survived the accident.She would’ve been 82 today.

On 31 August 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales, died as a result of injuries sustained in a car collision in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris, France. Her companion, Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the Mercedes-Benz W140, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. She would have been 50 now.

and not that anyone is asking ,but I'd take William over Albert any day! hahah :)
