Saturday in CinCity
Put on the Under Armour and layered up for a walk to the neighborhood movie house to see Crazy Heart. Having been a long time fan of music, Jeff Bridges, and alcoholics, I loved the movie. Told the HoneyHaired Grrrl to view it with an anthropological/sociological eye and an example of men not to date. Perfect gem of a movie though and Bad Blake very hard to resist.
Successfully passed my ACLS yesterday, so for any ResusciAnnies out there with complaints of dizziness, palpitations and a heart rate of 212, I'm here and ready for you. On second thought, maybe not. In my test, scenerio # 7, the patient does not survive so perhaps you should switch your symptoms over to scenerio #3. If you play your cards right, they at least make it to an admission to the Cardiac ICU.
Was hoping today to work on my CV/resume and letter of intent to tie up all the loose ends for an application packet to grad school--Public Health--but there'll still be some time this evening. Right now, going to put a pork loin in the oven and listen to a little Prairie Home Companion whilst(I LOVE that word!!)I make some Beer Cheese Dip for Hubby to take to work in the ER tomorrow.
•1-8 ounce package sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
•4 ounces cream cheese, softened
•1 garlic clove, minced

•Pretzels, crusty bread and/or crackers to serve
1.In a bowl, beat cheese together with an electric mixer until smooth.
2.Add garlic, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, dry mustard and red pepper.
3.Beat well until thoroughly blended.
4.Gradually add beer until well blended.
5.Taste...and salt and pepper to your liking if needed.
6.Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
7.Serve with crusty bread, pretzels and/or crackers.
Can't speak for Hubby, and most folks around here seem to be rooting for Indianopolis, but not me. I like the Saints.
Could be the Catholic upbringing,
or my deep and abiding faith in the little guys of the world.
Wherever your cheers land, hope everyone is warm, cozy, and has electricity. It's truly a beautiful thing.
