Kaye reviewed the mini-series The Undoing this Sunday and certainly a nail-biting suspense.. head over to find out Debby’s views on the series.

Sunday Movie Review

Sunday Movie Review: The Undoing #miniseries – #Whodunit

Welcome to my Sunday Movie Review again. The Undoing is a mini series on HBO, an intense psychological thriller. For those of you who enjoy a good suspense whodunit, this series is for you.

My 5 Star Review:

I love a good character study movie. And with a cast of Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland, what’s not to love? Except, when you are used to seeing certain stars in movies who are mostly typecast play someone out of their character realm. But in this series, it demonstrates a great example of what going against the grain is like with Grant’s personified movie image. Grant in this psychological suspenseful role plays an unlikely and unusual character. We get a glimpse of a darker side of Grant in this suspenseful family saga whodunit with Grant as one of the suspected murderers because of who the murder victim was.

Carol Taylor has a terrific series that promotes health and the environment on her blog; Meatless Mondays.. This week Carol shares a delicious recipe, easy to make with step by step instructions for Thai Red Curry with Mushrooms and Purple Eggplants that would please the whole family. Having a meatless day each week is an invitation to get creative with vegetables and spices.

 

Meatless Monday…Week 4…Thai Red Curry with Mushrooms and Purple Eggplants…

Why Meatless Mondays?…

Lots of reasons but healthwise I know we should eat more plant-based meals not only for our health but for the environment…But there is so much information out there that to read, test and digest it takes a while …I have decided to do it in stages as to me it should be a permanent commitment and I wish to find some tasty dishes which are equal in taste to what I normally cook for my family.

I have stated many times that I will never be fully vegetarian or vegan as I believe in a healthy balanced diet coupled with exercise…but eating more plant-based meals seems to be the way to go…

Introducing more plant-based meals into your diet can help you maintain a healthy weight if you have some weight to lose then adding more plant-based meals has the benefit of removing foods from your diet which cause weight gain.

Plants are high in fibre…this means by introducing more plant-based recipes to your diet that the health of your gut improves so you are better able to absorb the nutrients from your food… you will be eating foods that support your immune system and reduce inflammation.

Fibre can lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar and it’s great for good bowel management…

This week my Meatless Monday’s recipe is a Thai red curry with Mushrooms and purple eggplants …I was going to use lentils this week but I had a glut of mushrooms which I love and I hate waste… lentils keep mushrooms don’t…
