I like to preface my food posts with things completely unrelated. So last night, I watched a movie. Dogville. It seems like it could be a love-it or hate-it movie, being 3-hours long and set up as a stage-play with a VERY minimalistic set. It was probably one of the most painful experiences I’ve ever experienced, watching a film, and a challenge, both emotionally and intellectually. It raises a lot of questions on forgiveness and judgment, and asks the question, how much are you willing to excuse evil under the guise of just being human. Not to mention an ending that blew me away. Does anyone have any experience with this flick? It needs to be watched with another person so you can talk about it afterwards.
Anyways. Time to insert a jarring juxtoposition. BANANA SMOOTHIES!!!! 😀 heh. Is it mundane to write about banana smoothies? I don’t care. I make these everytime I have bananas and yogurt in the house. They’re really light and lifting, and I can usually keep my head on pretty well when I start the day with one. It’s a 1-person serving. Double it if you have friends, mothers, secret lovers.
