Thursday’s Double Feature

I love when you enjoy a book, tv series or movie so much that the excitement continues after it’s over and you find yourself immediately on the internet discovering other books written by the author or movies/shows with the same actors, or dashing off to Baskin-Robbins for Stranger Things ice cream or somehow torturing your dog with a Baby Yoda sidekick after watching The Mandalorian (Harper has now made it perfectly clear that she never asked for a sidekick and she’s not particularly fond of the Minions loitering about the house either).  This week it happened again after watching the very interesting documentary A Seat At The Table about wine-making in New Zealand and the wonderful filmed version of the Broadway musical Hamilton.  I now have a bottle of Mt. Beautiful North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2019 so I can enjoy a glass of New Zealand wine while I read Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow which was the inspiration for the amazing musical produced, written and composed by Lin-Manual Miranda (click on titles/names for more information).

  1. I love it one when thing leads to another. Is that bucket of popcorn a cake? If so, holy cats!

    1. For some reason, I’ve never liked popcorn at home as well as at the theater, but if this cake came in a smaller size I’d be willing to start a new cake and movie day trend.🍰😁

    I haven’t read Alexander Hamilton yet, but it’s on my shelf. I have read Chernow’s “Grant” and also “Washington.” Both were excellent. I’m sure Alexander won’t disappoint! Also, gimmie that cake. Yum.

    1. 😁That bakery is AMAZING!😁 When I ordered the book I wasn’t sure how long Alexander Hamilton would remain at the top of my reading stack with a few favorite authors added recently, but after watching his interview about being a historical advisor on Hamilton, the favorites are going to have to wait a little longer than usual.🙂

    I don’t drink much wine, but every now and then a glass of crisp, cold NZ Sauvignon Blanc is just the thing. Does it pair with popcorn cake?! I think, yes?
