'The Hollywood Canteen' Trailer (1945) With Special Clip of Roy Rogers and TRIGGER Dancing!

'The Hollywood Canteen' (1945) Trailer

Nothing like it folks. Our family really enjoyed this movie. The good part of Hollywood, the part that makes one's heart melt. One of the sweetest movies ever...It's a 40s patriotic music fest at it's best. Adorable. Joan Leslie and Robert Hutton...I call this SWELL.

Just look at this incredible CAST!

This is one of our favorites! Roy Rogers and TRIGGER! Look at Trigger DANCE! Is this not the sweetest thing ever? If this ain't the cutest thing ever I don't know what is.

Roy Rogers & TRIGGER "Don't Fence Me In"

I thing your family might like this too. So sweet, and I like to keep it sweet.

One day I'll have to write up the story of the two handsome cowboys on their horses on our land looking for their lost cow. You can see some of our family antics here at MyForestCathedral.blogspot

I hope you enjoy your week, check this movie out if you get the druthers. It's plum wonderful.

I hope everyone had a sweet Easter Sunday. Thank you Jesus for what you have done for me.

Love to All, ~Amelia

Old Movie Night with Jim Thorpe the All American and Italian Cauliflower Cutlets, Ya Can't Beat That!

As you know our family loves, loves, loves old black and white movies especially from the late- 30s, 40s - early 50s era. Allow me to say, if you haven't delved into the wonderful refreshing world of old movies you are missing out. When we see most modern movies, even the ones that are supposed to be clean with the exception of some great Christian movies we just cringe. Why cringe? Because the culture is warped and I don't want to be part of it. I do not want to be conditioned to the culture. We don't want our girls conditioned to the culture either. Diplomacy isn't my thing when the prophet side peeps out is it? ; ) But I really don't know why folks would want to watch things that God hates. Yes, God does hate things, look it up. : ) I mean that with a loving heart like a Italian mama who loves the Lord. Most churches won't say it so I will. Isn't that pitiful? An Italian mama has to say what churches won't say?

Here is this neat old movie, Jim Thorpe - All American. (1951) Make sure and take the time to see the trailer on the above link, you'll see the sweetness of the times glowing through.

Wow. That Burt Lancaster is handsome dandsome, and Phyllis Thaxter is a doll.

Our family really enjoyed it, and it definitely shows what can happen to a person disillusioned with life. A bit sad in the end, it just goes to show what bad choices do to a person's life. In the beginning of the movie when it shows Jim Thorpe going to college and how he has his eye on his sweet gal, my husband remarked: "Now THAT'S how a NORMAL young man is SUPPOSED to behave when he sees what he likes!" So true hubby, so true. We don't get young men now days. ; ) If you watch the trailer you'll see Americana at some of it's best years ever. Enjoy!

Now for that recipe that we loved. It's easy-breezy too!

Easy-Breezy Italian Cauliflower Cutlets

Here goes, it's easy-breezy! If you like this recipe and use it for your blog I consider that a compliment but please link to my blog here. It's nice to be nice! Please be a thoughtful blogger. : )

You take a head of cauliflower and cut it in fourths and make each slice right under an inch thick. You can also use the florettes on the pan too. Don't worry about stragglers. They will be yummy extras.

Take a cookie sheet and put a nice amount of olive oil on it, place your cauliflower slices and pieces on the pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bake at around 400 degrees around ten minutes and turn. Each side should be a bit brown, it will become very tender.

Done. Great little veggie dinner. You could serve this with a seasoned rice, pasta and gravy (yes we old time Italians call it gravy) : ), a green salad, a veggie burger patty with a gravy etc. It's good. And YES. This would make my Italian Grandma and Grandpa both... SMILE. This recipe will be brought to Miz Helen's Full Plate Thursday. : )

If you want to see what my family is up to in the country these days? Country-Italian at it's finest? ; ) You may enjoy my My Forest Cathedral.blogspot.
