It’s Monday and time again for Music Monday’s. Today is really kicking my butt, so I searched for a song that could convey what I feel pent-up inside of me….
Yes, I am a Twilight fan…..I have no shame in saying that. I’ve read the entire series and watched the 1st three movies. Ok, who wouldn’t want a boyfriend that sparkles like diamonds when the sun is cast upon him, AND has super un-human powers to carry you on his back while racing up a mountain and then jump from tree top to tree top? It could be a bit more exciting than zip-lining don’t you think?
I happen to be fascinated by space and the concept of a black hole, which leads me to the concept of Forever. Once you’ve been converted to Vampire you live FOREVER….just think of all you could accomplish in that amount of time. I think I could go around and around with that one….
I do think this song fits perfectly into the above baseball scene. As for Muse, they know how to speak to me via bass guitar and drums.
To back up just a bit, Saturday, I worked at my favorite Fry’s Signature Store and afterwards indulged in a glass of Pinot Noir called Cherry Pie. With a big hit of dark Bing cherries this complex Pinot opens up with some time in the glass and is definitely enhanced by food.
For Father’s Day I got Hubby a rotisserie attachment for his new grill. We decided to use it yesterday to cook our first whole bird on the grill. I purchased an all natural hormone free chicken and I’m telling you – it does make a difference! It was juicy and so full of flavor I can’t believe we waited so long to try this.
But, I’ve got ahead of myself. As an appetizer we had Peach, Prosciutto & Ricotta Crostini. Ah-Maz-Ing!! After trying many brands of prosciutto we’ve found Boars Head or San Daniele to be the best.
After dinner, was a dessert of Grilled Fresh Figs with Ice Cream and Honey.
I used organic Black Mission figs from Whole Foods, fresh thyme and mint from our herb garden and Talenti Vanilla Bean Gelato. You have to try this!!! In Arizona we have a small window of fresh figs (about 6 weeks) so I like to try as many of these recipes as I can.
In case you thought this post was about food and not music as I originally started out with, here is another favorite song of mine by Linkin Park with lots of drums, guitar and screaming angst called Bleed It Out….Crank.Those.Speakers.Up!!!
So,what did you do this past weekend ? Did you try any new foods or wine?
Until next time, Cheers to you…..Cheryl
