Dinner and a Movie

February 8, 2010

Thinking about what to do for that special someone to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Date night with a homemade meal will be extra memorable with some help from the Library where there are hundreds of books in the culinary collection. The hardest part of preparing something homemade will be deciding what to make. If an entire dinner is more than you want to commit to, perhaps preparing one of the luscious recipes in Baked from the Heart: Gifts of Love for Special Occasions by Stephanie Greenleigh will provide you with a creative and thoughtful gift idea that will impress and delight.

Along with good food, entertaining with a movie always creates a pleasant addition to a romantic evening. The Library has several popular and recent movie releases on DVD that can be checked out. Titles in the romantic comedy genre include: Julie & Julia, 50 First Dates, The American President, No Reservations, The Break-up, and Waitress. Students may check out one DVD/video at a time for a loan period of one week. There are dozens of other popular movies in your JWU Library collection to choose from.
