Menu of the Day:
The photo: look real hard!.... This is funny in more than one way: My husband, in his health kick with the green soups, made this soup too. Look at the label on the tupperware: He has written Gestapo. What's also funny is he, of course, means gazpacho, a soup i really don't like at all. (Who wants to eat cold soup?) And this soup doesn't even look like gazpacho. It's more like a chili.
My husband and his Nazi soup! hahahaha...... I saw this in the freezer and laughed my ass off, so of course i had to take a photo. My husband is so cute.
The Video: Who saw the finale of Saturday Night Live? I thought it was one of the best ones in a very long time. Mick Jagger hosted and was so funny and awesome. This video is him singing a song he wrote about the presidential election. But the kicker is that Jeff Beck (one of the best guitar players in the world, according to Rolling Stone, is in it.) It's pretty cool.
In my glass: a really cool viognier rousanne blend that my wine friend Tom told me about today. A great summer wine for our 70+ degree day.
Latest iTunes purchase: the new Counting Crows Underwater Sunshine and Bonnie Raitt's Slipstream. I love that Counting Crows is covering that song "Amie", i forget the original artist, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band? I don't think that's right, but it's something like that. (If eque was posting here she would know. ) I really love the Ooh La La song by Counting Crows.
Book: I'm not getting into Irving's One Person book or whatever the hell it's called. But that happens with him sometime. It might get better.
What I'm happy about: i'm still feeling good about that half marathon because i really surprised myself and i don't often do that. I really do think i'm going to do this again next year because when i look back on it... i love how it got me off my ass during our horrible winter months and this year i never got that seasonal funk. And i am still upping my running. I ran 45 min. yesterday.
Facebook sent a prompt about looking for my photo from the official race photographers. Uggggg. I realize how old i look when i am running. And my arms look muscle-y but not in a cool way. Sort of like when they showed photos of Madonna. I think i'm going to cut back on the weights. Plus i'm scowling. I'll see if i can link it here later.
Gripe: i have little ants in my house ever since the condo management sprayed for ants outside. How do you get rid of these little tiny ants?
Product endorsement: I just discovered Boden catalog! Who else orders online from these folks? dress i ordered from Boden
That's it for today. Only a menu. What's on YOUR menu? What are your Memorial Day plans?
