I shall never go hungry again.
It seems like a silly item to have on my 40×40 list (what with there being only 40 items and all you’d think I could come up with something a tad grander), but nonetheless, this past weekend I set out to watch Gone With The Wind from overture to end.
I took the dog on an extra long walk, had the curtains drawn, the lights down, pillows and blankets fluffed, and snacks at the ready. I was going to do this and do it right.
Then 15 minutes into the movie I realized I had seen it before.
I vaguely remember my sister having a Gone With The Wind “moment” in middle-school (this was probably before the Dirty Dancing moment but after the Steel Magnolias moment), so I must have watched it then. But I went ahead and watch it again. Mainly for the snacks. Oh, the snacks!
“Fiddle dee-dee” sweet tea with a splash of bourbon.
Sweet Potato Fries with spicy creole seasoning.
“Frankly my dear, I don’t give a ham” biscuits with sharp cheddar and mustard butter.
Butter Pecan ice cream.
Have you seen Gone With The Wind? Have you read it? To make my 40×40 more legit, I’ve decided to read a little Margaret Mitchell next. And probably have more fiddle-dee-dee sweat tea.
