This post is illustrated with photos from my trip to the City Market on Saturday. I needed veggies and thought I’d rather go there than the regular supermarket. It was a beautiful day and a great decision.
I also enjoyed a fabulous concert by Michigan State University’s College of Music – there was one number that gave me chills, it was so powerful, emotional, spiritual and elegant. But the whole evening was well worth it!
Then on Saturday, we enjoyed a local theatre production of Little Shop of Horrors, which was simply delightful in every way. (Although I think the Gypsy has taken lessons from Audrey II, the hungry plant – maybe not in food content, but in his aggressive delivery when he’s hungry!)
(Seen here at his Executive Assistant spot in the art room!)
It was nice to spend time with Rick when I wasn't totally obnoxious with my maladies! The prednisone is SLOWLY kicking in. (I thought it would be faster, but I shouldn't complain!)
Sunday I managed to deal with mall tasks – including the hunt for a dress to wear to an October wedding. I hate dress shopping more than anything (particularly since I have shoe issues, given my orthotics). I found something, but feel compelled to try again.
This photo expresses my angst at dress shopping!
And finally felt like cooking again, even though I haven’t been able to smell a thing since Labor Day and everything tastes metallic. I did this wonderful banana/chocolate bread from a Cooking Light recipe.
When you cut it open, it has a nice swirl.Also served my tried-and-true Kate’s Salmon and made a nice dressing for broccoli slaw.
1 package (or what you need) of broccoli slaw
Mixed veggies – I used radish, scallion, cherry tomato
Extras – I used dried cranberries, spiced nuts from Trader Joe’s.
About half of one small container of plain yogurt
Juice of ½ lime
Chimayo pepper (ground) – I would have used chipotle if I had any left
I just mixed up this interesting combo of ingredients until it was a dressing consistency and had a nice flavor. No quantities or measurements, unfortunately, but give it a shot!
