I normally like my movies to have some combination of spaceships, swords, and/or explosions, but I will confess to absolutely adoring Steel Magnolias. It’s a total chick flick but for some reason I love it. I even get teary-eyed during the more schmaltzy scenes. Anyway, here’s the recipe I promised in the post title. At one point in the film Dolly Parton gives the recipe for one of the easiest homemade deserts ever, a little dish called Cuppa-Cuppa-Cuppa:
a cup of sugar
a cup of flour
a cup of fruit cocktail
mix it up, pour it in a baking pan, and bake 'til brown
I’ve tried it a couple times and it totally works. I wish I could give you more precise baking instructions, but I usually set the oven to 350 degrees (my default temp when I have to guess) and just watch carefully. Dolly’s character recommends a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each piece, but I use Cool Whip or that spray whip cream stuff.
Many years ago I made Cuppa-Cuppa-Cuppa for a potluck at the lodge and all the little old ladies were amazed by the fact that a man was able to cook anything more complicated than Boiled Water.
The past few days we have been re watching 1-6 and have enjoyed it. My question is in Episode 1 when Qui-Gon Jinn goes in to the village and Padmé goes with him insisting that it was the Queen's order that she go. Since he is a Jedi and can read minds would he not have all ready known that Padme' was really the queen. Her mind would not have been strong enough to block that information from him.
