Watching Mildred Pierce?
Is anyone watching the mini-series "Mildred Pierce," HBO Sunday nights? Depression era home cook survives by opening a restaurant serving only chicken, starring Kate Winslet. "There are steak places and seafood places, but no chicken places!"
It seems it's a remake of a 1945 Joan Crawford movie. I won't say more about it, just that I'm enjoying watching the heroine's culinary efforts. It didn't seem to get much publicity.
