Low Carb Swedish Meatballs

Hi fellow foodies! It’s Thursday and you’ve almost made it to the weekend! Woo hoo! Do you have big plans? Anybody going to the movie? I always love going to see a movie. It is one of my favorite things to do. We have a theater near us that allows you to reserve your seats, I mean recliners (it’s pretty special). They also have waiters that come to your seat and take your order for restaurant style food.

Now, I’m sure that you all have theaters like this too, at least I hope you do. But, I wanted to talk about how much it rocks. I have taken every one of my friends and family members to this theater because I always have a good time. I don’t watch a lot of television at home (except Great British Bake Off) so going to the movie theater is a unique experience. I don’t like romance movies but I will see every adventure and super hero movie that comes out. I’ve already got plans to see the new Mission Impossible movie that comes out next week. I think that’s the movie where Tom Cruise actually broke his ankle while filming. Ouch!

What about you? What kinds of movies do you like?

      1. I started that too but I haven’t finished it. I just keep rewatching the regular episodes.
        That’s a great idea, though. I had forgotten about those episodes. I’ll check those out again. Thanks, Julie.
