Dinner & a Movie: Seven Days in Utopia

If you are looking for a great movie to watch this weekend, I would highly recommend Seven Days in Utopia. We were searching through the Comcast list of OnDemand movies and fell upon it. We loved it! Zach ordered the book after watching the movie and really liked it too. You can check out the website to watch the trailer: http://www.sevendaysinutopia.com/video

Here is the story from the website:

SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA follows the story of Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black), a talented young golfer set on making the pro tour. When his first big shot turns out to be a very public disaster, Luke escapes the pressures of the game and finds himself unexpectedly stranded in Utopia, Texas, home to eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall). But Johnny’s more than meets the eye, and his profound ways of looking at life force Luke to question not only his past choices, but his direction for the future.
Based on David L. Cook’s best-selling book Golf’s Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia, SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA also stars Melissa Leo, Deborah Ann Woll, Brian Geraghty, Jerry Ferrera, Joseph Lyle Taylor, KJ Choi and Kathy Baker. The film is directed by Matthew Dean Russell from a script by Cook, Rob Levine, Russell and Sandra Thrift. The film was produced by Mark G. Mathis (Brick, Precious) and Jason M. Berman (The Dry Land).

If you watch it, let me know what you think! 🙂


One of our go to meals are Flatbread Pizzas. They are so quick & easy, somewhat healthy(depending on your toppings) and delicious!

To make them you first you want to place the flatbread directly on the oven rack at about 425 degrees for about 5 minutes to get the crust a little crispier. Take out of oven and top with marinara sauce, veggies, meat and cheese. I love using real bacon bits as a topping. They are so much easier than cooking bacon and they have a great flavor. Aldi’s carries them and they are $1.39 a bag. We put them on pizza, salads, soups, breakfast burritos, and pretty much any recipe that calls for bacon. Once you get your flatbread decorated…

top with cheese (I use Mozzarella and Parmesan) and place back in the oven for about 6 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted.


I then usually top with crushed red pepper, black pepper and some Italian seasoning.

Have a great Friday!
