Don't mind me, I'm just snacking on taro chips and roasted garlic & chive hummus here.... Today was very nice. We ventured out to Whole Foods this afternoon, and discussed possibly joining a CSA during the drive.
Walking into Whole Foods, to my left, I fell in love with a bouquet of pink peonies. Our grocery list was too large to afford flowers, but maybe next week. For now, I'll keep admiring Jen Causey's 5x7 print on Etsy:
We did purchase shopping beverages, though. I sipped an amazing to-go cup of pomegranate green tea. Oh, my. I might need a box later. Sugar snap peas were a new addition to our grocery list (thanks to Kierstin). I plan to snack on 'em, and throw a few into Johnny's beef/veggie/garlic/sesame oil stir fry.
We always pick up asparagus while grocery shopping. We normally wrap it in prosciutto - serious yum - but soon, for variety, I'll tweak this recipe to be yeast-free (86 the bulgur). That recipe is thanks to Nicole.
To move away from culinary thoughts, Johnny sent a YouTube video this morning which reminded me exactly why I love and revere the elderly. It led me to another video which I think you should see, too ~ a member of the Young@Heart Chorus singing "Fix You" by Coldplay. Tears brimmed in my eyes from this dear man's performance with the Chorus:
So, the video from Johnny was this awesome trailer for the Young@Heart documentary which I want to see ASAP. In general, I don't think our society has any idea what wisdom, light, talents, and wit the elderly have to share. Those videos give a good glimpse, don't they?
Lastly, Juno was great! A beautiful film, and we laughed our heads off. I heard The Kinks in the soundtrack, too. My Mom tells me she listened to The Kinks when I was in utero. This might explain my passion for The Kinks here in 2008; I loved The Darjeeling Limited soundtrack as well.
