Celebrating a 'Consolation Prize'.
I think we all knew Clooney wasn't going to win for Best Screenplay or Best Director; this was the year of the gay cowboy, after all.
But getting the Best Supporting Actor is nothing to sneeze at...and as George himself said, he'll now be known as 'Oscar-winner, George Clooney, and Sexiest Man Alive, 1997'.
I always watch the Academy Awards, even if I'm lucky to have seen one nominated film (this year it was "Good Night, and Good Luck"). And to go with, we made a few little bites.
Above, Baby Potatoes with Saffron Aioli
Chicken Salad in Wonton Cups
I'd made something like this last year; they're perfect for snacking.
And some cute little Gruyere Cheese Puffs
Simple fare, but classy enough for a two-person Oscar Party!
Blog Party 8 has been announced, and this month, we're having Brunch! Turn your favorite breakfast foods into bite-sized treats, and get those entries to me no later than 16 March; Blog Party is 18 March. Hope to see you there!
