I came across this recipe reading Sunday’s New York Time’s magazine so kudos go to them.
6) the stock simmers; 7) gather and chop the other ingredients: carrot, garlic, potatoes, onion, celery (really whatever you have laying around in the fridge)
10) add in a 28oz can of tomatoes and simmer 20 minutes; 11) remove about half the potatoes and mush with the tomato juice and re-add … the starch in the potatoes will help thicken the stock
Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day
Starring Frances McDormand as Miss Pettigrew – a for-hire nanny with very high morals and a panache for getting fired – and Amy Adams in an anything but nun-like role as Delysia LaFosse, an American wannabe singer/actress bedding three lads in London at the start of World War II, this gem of a movie is perfect from start to finish. When the matronly Miss Pettigrew slyly cheats her employer and ends up on the doorstep of Miss LaFosse at the perfect time to aide her in extracting herself from a delicate situation involving two of her three lovers, she is suddenly seen as the guru of all things romantic, even when all she’s after is a bite to eat. Director Bharat Nalluri nails London in all its 1939 glory and mirrors the foss of fashion (Shirley Henderson as maven Edythe DuBarry is great) and the silliness of the storyline with two genuine love stories and some great life lessons. Acted brilliantly by all involved, including Miss Pettigrew’s subtle love interest Joe Boomfield (Ciarán Hinds), this film is charming from start to finish. My rating 8 out of 10.
