Ten on Tuesday

This week's Ten on Tuesday sounds as though it would be easy. But I found it hard to come up with 10 Movies I Have to See NOW!

Here goes:
1. One for the Money. I love all the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich. While I really didn't see Katherine Heigl as the main character, I always saw Sheri Shepherd as Lula. Can't wait to see this one!
2. War Horse. I'm not entirely sure why I want to see this one. I really don't care of horse movies but this one intrigues me.
3. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I think anyone who was aware of what was going on during the 9/11 era is going to want to see this movie with Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks...
4. Sherlock Holmes 2 - Robert Downey Jr is not my favorite actor but he totally owns this role. I loved the first movie and am looking forward to seeing the sequel.
5. Iron Lady . One name - Meryl Streep. 'Nuff said.
6. Bloodfare. Independent writer/director/actor J. A. Steel is a friend and I am looking forward to her newest offering of horror. (And besides, my son has a speaking role in the movie!)
7. Breaking Dawn, part 1 - I'm probably going to have to wait for the DVD to come out since there isn't anyone I can go with and I don't see the need to drive 30 miles each way to see a movie by myself.
8. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - I enjoyed the books so the movie is something that I'd like to compare it to.
9. Joyful Noise - I like Queen Latifah and the thought of her and Dolly Parton in the same movie makes me smile.
10. I simply cannot think of another movie I'm dying to see. So we will leave this one blank.

Thanks for stopping by.

This week our Ten on Tuesday subject is one that I can definitely get behind.

10 Soups You Like to Eat:

1. Homemade Chicken Soup - my wonderful husband makes the absolute best chicken soup. He puts in chicken pieces from the chickens that he grows. Yum!
2. Tomato soup - this is my comfort food. Along with a grilled cheese sandwich or with cheese slices cut into stars and put in the bottom of the bowl so it melts when the hot soup is poured over it.
3. Cream of broccoli soup.
4. Potato Cheese soup. I've got a marvelous recipe for this soup made in the crock pot.
5. Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup - this is the kind that comes in an envelope and has millions of little noodles in it...I haven't had this in years and it still makes my heart flutter to think about it.
6. Chili - I know, it's not really soup, but it is really good and, let's face it, this is my list and I can put whatever I want on it.
7. Portuguese Soup - I got this recipe from a lady who had a small diner in Rhode Island when we lived there. We ate there each Friday nite. Made with chorize and beans...truly a wonderful winter soup.
8. Bean with Bacon soup.
9. Cream of Asparagus soup.
10. Cream of Mushroom soup. Now I don't like this all by itself, but I sure do like to use it when I'm cooking...included in a tuna casserole or on top of a roast, it is definitely a kitchen necessity.

What kind of soup makes your heart sing?
