She cooks as good as she looks, Ted.

The original "Stepford Wives" is on right now.

I love this movie.

Horror and some feminist stuff, all rolled into one? Oh yeah, baby!

The remake is not bad... well, except for Nicole Kidman. It's no real "remake" but a fair twist on the original.

But I was a bit of a domestic tonight.... got the oldest nephew's 6th birthday party tomorrow (dude.... how did he get to be six? It's been that long????) and I'm bringing some appetizers. Mini potato skins... and if all goes as planned tomorrow, the salmon tartar outta the French Laundry Cookbook, served in a sort of "sandwich" form with some puff pastry that did not do what I wanted it to tonight. S'all good. I'll make it work.

Black eyes!!!

Oh... at the grocery store scene. I love this movie.....

Mrs. VJW, I hope you've put a lot of thought about how you're going to get the food INto those children.
Perhaps you might consider this:

Rosie - all 4 of my nephews are good examples of NORMAL kids who will eat pretty much anything that they like, and they have varied tastes. I've seen them turn down birthday cake for grapes. Just a couple weeks ago, when we were at brunch, one was eating fresh mozzarella balls and my mother in law commented that she'd never tried fresh mozz before, and my nephew threw out, complete with appropriate eyeroll... "I looooooove fresh mozzarella".

mrsvjw, I applaud your nephews.
And their parents. And you.

I guess this means the feeding tube won't be necessary?

Damn!
