AUTHOR PROCEEDS BENEFIT 

THURSDAY'S HEROES CHARITY!


Review:
I love cookbooks! Especially ones that are giving back to charities. 
I picked a quick and easy recipe, as I was pressed for time one night and not sure what to make. This seemed like a great side dish, and as usual, I was right.
Creamed Potatoes and Peas
I had everything in the house so it was no problem to make. It helped that it wasn't going to require a lot of effort or time on my part. I was starving at this point and am sure the rest of the family was too.
It was delicious too!
I know you're thinking it looks like mashed potatoes with peas, but let me tell you how wrong that assumption is. These potatoes have texture because cornstarch is used.
Oh, what a clever way to feed the family. 
I can't wait to try the Jalapeno Crescent Rolls next!
Be sure to get a copy for yourself, as the author's proceeds go back to charity.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
