When I was young going to watch a movie in a theater was a luxury. Either we were too busy on the farm or we did not have the money. I have never been to a movie with my parents. They simply did not have the time to come with us. I remember going with my cousin or my sister. I was so excited the first time I was allowed to go when I was 13 yrs old. I had saved the money for the movie and to buy one treat. I could not resist to buy a bag of popcorn. My sister wanted a chocolate bar. The experience was surreal to me, I was finally watching a movie on a big screen. When I bought my first car, at 18 yrs old, I could drive myself to town and went more often. Years have passed and I still like the feeling of watching a movie in a theater, instead of at home.
If you ask me: what is your favorite movie? I would say that there are too many to name them all. But there is one that I really enjoyed, it's Slumdog Millionnaire. One of my dreams is to visit India, that is why I could not wait to watch this movie. Jamal, that eighteen year-old orphan, is so adorable. I like the fact that this movie was filmed in India.
Once in a while we do a Movie night at home. We make ourselves comfortable and we fill the coffee table with snacks and drinks. I still love popcorn but also like a little sweet treat to satisfy my chocolate cravings.
I decided to make a Dark Chocolate Ginger Loaf. You might be surprised that there is Major Grey chutney in my recipe. My loaf is super moist and addictive. I am going to experience more with this chutney in my desserts because I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
