They have all gone, all of them! My sweet little town heaved a big sigh of relief…..
So, I wrote the name of everyone who entered my little giveaway on a piece of paper, put them all in a cup and let my youngest grandson pick one out, and “drumroll” he picked La from http://amusingpotpourri.blogspot.com/
“Giant with Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean and many more fabulous actors. It was James Dean’s final film before his untimely death.
It’s 4 hours long so stock up on popcorn, beverages, and maybe slide one of those fabulous pizzas in the oven.”
Have a fabulous week…try to shake the Sundance Blues. ) La”
The lovely folks over at Sundance are going to send your gift directly to you, so if you will email me your address, I’ll get it right over to them.
Thanks everyone for participating, I was excited to see so many responses and my Netflix Que is much happier this morning!

I decided I wanted a pizza last night. Sundance is still going on in Park City (scroll down for a cool Sundance giveaway!), and the thought of wrestling with Paris Hilton to get in line at the local pizza joint just didn’t appeal to me, so I decided to make my own! Here’s how I did it
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 package dried yeast
1 t sugar
3/4 t salt
1/2 cup plus 2 T warm water
2 t vegetable oil
1/2 cup tomato sauce (preferably homemade)
salt & pepper from the mill to taste
1 T Italian seasoning
1 T Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded buffalo mozzarella
1 cup fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced yellow onions
3/4 cup sliced pepperoni
If you have a bake stone, put it in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees. If you don’t have a bake stone, just preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
and pulse until it’s in small, crumbly pieces
Spread some cornmeal on a pizza peel (If you don’t have one, just use a pizza pan, but they aren’t very expensive and really make the whole process easier and more fun!). It’s important to get a pretty good amount of cornmeal on the peel or the pan so the pizza is easier to move around.
Spread and/or roll the dough on the peel. I don’t get obsessed about having a round or square or any other specific size/shape of pizza. I like my pizza rustic and well, basically, I’m lazy so that’s how I justify not putting too much effort into making it look pretty
While it’s baking, open a bottle of some lovely Chenin Blanc (preferably from Washington State, and well, preferably from Walla Walla, Washington, and well, preferably L’Ecole #41 Chenin Blanc, I’m just sayin…) I know it’s winter, but this soft smooth wine really tastes good to me with pizza. Pour a glass and wait patiently for the pizza to cook (7 to 10 minutes)

So, one of my first posts a year ago when I started this blog was about the Sundance Film Festival. I know it’s important to the economy and no one loves a good independent film more than me, but when you try to fit 40,000 people, more or less, into this little town, it’s a world class mess. I walked around a few nights ago with my camera and took a few shots of the calm before the storm
Anyhoo, in an effort to adjust my attitude about our lovely Sundance Film Festival, I am going to toddle on over there near the end of the festival..sigh..and pick up some official Sundance 2011 memorabilia and give it away to a lucky reader! I was going to do some sort of giveaway for my one year blogoversary last month, but decided to wait and do one during Sundance.
To enter, just leave a comment telling me your favorite movie of all time (I need some Netflix suggestions!)
