My girlfriend and I made a pact to see all the Oscar nominees for Best Picture before the show on Sunday. We’ve been working our way through the nine nominees — laughing, crying and yep, sometimes sleeping through them. Here’s what we’ve seen so far:
Zero Dark Thirty
Life of Pi
Silver Linings Playbook
And here’s what we have left:
Beasts of the Southern Wild
So far, we’ve loved Les Mis and Silver Linings. We both snoozed through Lincoln. Thought Life of Pi was visually stunning. Not in love with Zero Dark Thirty. And we’re split on Argo — I enjoyed and she didn’t.
But we both agree that this Salted Caramel Pudding would make an Oscar-worthy dessert. It’s golden and visually stunning, just like Oscar himself. You do have to make the caramel yourself, but as long as you watch carefully — don’t try to leave the stove and say, balance your checkbook — you’ll be just fine.
