Went over to my friend Betsyâ€™s house last night to watch the movie â€œThe Big Shortâ€ (this was her idea). Her internet has been out all week, so I rented and then downloaded the movie to my iPad so I could play it on her tv. Along with the movie I brought over two Hungry Man dinners (beer battered â€œchickenâ€ with mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and a brownie), a bag of salad mix, corn for popping, and some Twizzlers. Oh, and a bottle of white wine. All of this was shoved into a backpack as I decided to ride my bicycle to her house.
Given the movie was about the 2007 financial crisis we agreed to eat a throwback dinner on the cheap, hence the Hungry Man dinners. I hadnâ€™t eaten one in decades, and probably wonâ€™t eat another again.
