Morning Mix Show Notes 1/18
The Gourmet Guess was a little bit of a head scratcher again this morning. Your Gourmet Guess clue for today: This word dates back to 16th Century England, but the practice didn't come into regular society until the early 20th Century. These are now a staple at family reunions, community gatherings and church suppers. (Scroll down for the correct answer)
Our Movie Maven Ileana came in to tell us that there's isn't Jack Q. Squat out for DVDs today. Mostly independent releases. The one movie she did say to pick up is "Stone" starring Edward Norton, Robert DeNiro and Milla Jovovich. Ed stars as a convicted killer who is having trouble convincing his parole officer (played by DeNiro) to endorse his release from prison. Milla plays Ed's wife who gets a little too comfy with DeNiro's character. For TV series on DVD, I endorse "21 Jump Street". The 14th and final season of "Dallas" is also out today.
The correct answer for Gourmet Guess today: Potluck. The literal translation is a meal with no particular menu where everyone invited brings a dish to pass. Congrats going out to Luann for being on the ball this morning! She scored a $10 certificate to Icing Dreams!
