So, do you ever have random songs just pop into your head? And, by random, I mean songs you don’t normally hear on the radio. Is that just me?
Well, this morning, out of nowhere – and I really can’t explain it because I spent time watching pre-season football this weekend, NOT children’s shows – came this doozy:
I know. I’m sorry. I should be ashamed of myself. One for the song bomb and two, because I subjected you to Barney!
I’m sorry. Really, I am.
If you only knew how much I am NOT a fan of Barney, you would understand my consternation. Ugh.
Moving on….it’s the only way…..
I love listening to music when I’m cooking or cleaning or just hanging around. I have a wide variety of tastes (see above) but lately, I’ve been reaching for these artists:
- 1. Amy Winehouse
- 2. Etta James
- 3. Ray LaMontagne
If you don’t know who Ray LaMontagne is, you are totally missing out.
- 4. Liz Longley
Same with Liz Longley. Check her stuff out. You won’t be sorry!
- 5. Duffy
It seems they’re always in my CD player.
Yes, I still have CDs. I’m old-fashioned. You don’t EVEN want me to tell you about the reel-to-reel player I have! Now, THAT’s old school.
Anyway, if I’m not playing one of those, I’m usually playing some standards or maybe some Ella Fitzgerald.
And, then, while relaxing in my kitchen, I make things like this:
Chutney Chicken One Pot.
Oh. So. Yummy.
Do you like my ginormous cast iron skillet?
1. Do you cook with cast iron?
2. What are you listening to these days? I love suggestions!
3. Can you forgive me for the purple dinosaur?
