event announcement: Because I Said So {food 'n flix}

I am excited to be hosting this round of Food 'n Flix.  We've had some fabulous picks so far this year that have brought us and our kitchens to the likes of Italy, California Wine Country, and Greece.  We've gotten mystical.  We've traveled the world.  This month, we're hanging out with a quirky band of sisters and their mother in the flick Because I Said So.

I admit, I tend to choose chic-flicks with foodie tendencies.  But hey, we all need a little getaway...some escape time...some me time.  And I'm perfectly fine spending time with a family who loves their wine, their cakes, and their catered events.  Not to mention I have a little Gabriel Macht crush.  Little.  I don't mind laying eyes on him for 90 minutes.

And I swear, I picked this flick months ago...waaaaay before I knew I was going to declare this The Summer of the Popsicle.  So the little popsicle moment in the film is really just a happy coincidence.  I'm going to try not to make popsicles for this one.  I may not succeed, but...

So, do you want to watch this flick with us this month and then cook or bake something inspired by it?  I hope you do!  If so, here's the skinny:
