Before we venture into the weekend, let me share my five for this week~
1. Hostess Peppermint Ho Hos
Put away the pumpkin - peppermint season is here! For the first time ever, Hostess is introducing a new variety of Ho Hos -- Peppermint! What a way to welcome in the holiday season! Yes, I'll be scoping the stores for these. Anyone already tried them?
It's here, it's here! The new James Bond movie opens today and it sounds like another great one. This is actually the 24th Bond movie and the 4th time Daniel Craig has played the part. Sure hope it does well because rumor has it that this movie cost in excess of $300 million to produce. Crazy!!
Here's the story line told by Movie Insider, "A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organization known as SPECTRE.Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot."
3. Pie Anyone?
With the holidays fast approaching, pie baking might be on your to do list. Does making a lattice pie crust just seem too daunting? Well, check out this post from Gimme Some Oven! It breaks it down into a pretty simple technique. Come on - you can do it!! Think how impressed your guests will be when you display one of these babies on your dessert table.
4. Oprah's Favorite Things 2015
