Staying in? We've got you covered -- both on the culinary and entertainment fronts. Now presenting Dinner and a Movie -- a guide to a do it yourself evening of food and film.
Nick and Nora Charles investigate the disappearance of a wealthy inventor while ignoring the Prohibition laws and drinking lots of Gin. We love the couple's comic banter, their clothes, their drinks, and their dog.
Entrée: Steak over Mixed Greens
Popcorn: Skinny Popcorn
Beverage: Gin Martini
Get the skinny after the jump...
We wanted to save our carbs for the booze, so we went with this recipe for Skinny Popcorn
. We used canola oil rather than the diet products they mention, and we cut the amount by half. We also sprinkled ours with lemon sea salt and minced parsley.
Ahh, yes, the Gin Martini, a good use of carbs and a classic Prohibition drink. We found a website
that gives a calorie breakdown of a Gin Martini. While garnishing with a lemon twist may be less calories, we adore it with a Blue Cheese Stuffed Olive. Click here
