Christmas in Connecticut ROUNDUP {food 'n flix} + hosting spots available for 2012!

I love stopping in the midst of all of the holiday madness to watch a movie.  Although it doesn't necessary have to be one that fits the season, often it is.  I decided that I would throw another holiday movie into the mix this I hadn't seen before- Christmas in Connecticut.  A fun, old-timey flick with foodie tendencies.

Although I only had two other people join me this month...I'm happy to bring you the Food 'n Flix: Christmas in Connecticut Roundup!
1. Deb from Kahakai Kitchen made a jazzed-up version of pancakes (she's a scooper, not a'll understand if you watch this flick) that I would love to wake up to any morning...Chocolate Chip Oat Pancakes w/ Raspberry Sauce. YUM!

2. Tina from Life in the Slow Lane at Squirrel Head Manor was inspired by the late night snack of chicken drumsticks and cold chablis.  One of my personal favorite food scenes in the film.

3. And I (Heather) from girlichef will round out this meal with a dessert that I thought fit right into the time-period (1940's) that this film was made.  I thought Elizabeth would love to pass this Double-Vanilla Walnut Meringue w/ Vanilla-Sugared Cranberries off as her own creation at the end of her Christmas meal.

This was a fun holiday flick which has earned a permanent place in my December's of years to come!  Thanks so much for joining me, ladies.
And now a little preview of the first few months of Food 'n Flix for 2012...

 Food 'n Flix will be kicking the year off with Eat Pray Love hosted by The Law Student's Cookbook.  In February, we'll be heading over to Kahakai Kitchen to watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding and March is cooking up Last Holiday at La Cocina de Leslie.  Hosting spots are open for the remainder of if you have a movie that inspires you to get into the kitchen and want to host Food 'n Flix at your place sometime next year, leave me a comment or send me an email and we'll get it scheduled!

  6. All of those choices look amazing Heather. I've never seen that movie, so we'll add it to our must watch list! I'd love to get in on the movie action for next September if it's still open. If it hasn't already been done, I'll pick "It's Complicated". That movie makes me want to cook!
