Digest The News: Les Mis Is Coming!

Today the Huffington Post released a first look vid of the film adaptation of Les Misérables, slated to hit theaters this Christmas. Tom Hooper’s vision of this classic tale looks breath taking so far and the addition of recording our favorite songs live while filming, leaves us hopeful. Do you hear the people sing?

We just watched the video, which provoked a single, solitary tear. *sigh*  Watch with kleenex…

Go ahead and dab those eyes… We know… it was beautiful.

Now, since you’ve probably already started planning your Les Mis themed Christmas party… Here is our recipe for a classic French peasant dish that smells good enough to bring any man back from the revolution.

Bring Him Home Ratatouille 

 

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced into rings
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped

Ready, Set, Cook:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat bottom and sides of a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
