The Becky, oh the Becky. A few years ago I discovered that she looks forward to the biggest night of the year as much as I do. What night is that do you ask? Doi - Oscar night! What other night could you sit on the couch in your jammies and watch celebrities parade around in fabulous get-ups? Oh, like pretty much any night you want. Of course. But you know, there's just something above and beyond about the Oscars even though I generally have seen about a third of the movies due to their overwhelming rated-R-ness. I just love watching and so does The Becky. A couple of times in the past we have made an Oscar night date and this year we did it again and decided to make it an official annual date. We even planned a menu. Oh my gosh it was so much fun.
I headed over to The Becky residence around 5:00, just in time to begin binge watching skinny ladies in fancy dresses talk to microphone-wielding also-skinny people. We made baked brie with apricot jam and almonds. We made these amazing salads with yellow beets and avocado and soft boiled eggs on top. Lemon vinaigrette. So good. I finished all of mine while The Becky daintily left the last few bites so as not to delve into total gluttony. And that's before I made molten chocolate cakes....with cream and raspberries....
Good thing I wore my pajamas. And slippers. It was all very glamorous.
