Song notes:

1. Last week I posted my Fantasy Setlist for the Old 97’s show at Harlow’s and then tweeted it to Rhett. He, being the nicest guy in rock, said he’d use it.

2. My list didn’t have any songs from Grand Theatre Volume 2 because I hadn’t gotten it yet {been an insanely weird month – not to worry, I picked on up at the show}.

It is AWESOME!

3. This is now my theme song. I’m a Trainwreck.

Song notes:

1. Sir, just what exactly is on your suit? {oh my – it did end up as a clue on Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me recently}.

If you find the suit distracting just concentrate on the lovely locks and sweet voice.

2. This song kills me every time. The soul. The heartfelt lyrics. The puppy dog eyes. {sigh}

I do wish it had a better name.

Hot Burrito #1?

Hmmmm.

3. For the record, I would love to hear Old 97s cover this song when they play at Harlow’s June 4th. AND I would love to win this Meet and Greet with the band.

Take me with you if you win?

What is the song you’d love your favorite band to cover?

Yoga+Music {notquite365} Hitchhike to Rhome by Old 97’s – Recipe Edition!

It’s Tuesday Wednesday and that means the Recipe Edition!

+++++

Since our last go round with the Recipe Edition, I’ve been poked 32 times with potential allergens and *surprise*I’m highly allergic to 29! Granted most of these are what allergists refer to as “inhalant” – things in the air – which means I have really, really bad hay fever.

After much arm twisting and doctor doubts, also I was able to get tested for two specific foods – wheat and milk.

One of my new allergies is…. wait for it…. my beloved dairy.

So now I’m reading books with awesome titles like The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Dairy-Free Eating and The Everyday Dairy-Free Cookbook.

Today’s recipe is one I’ve been starting my day with.

+++++

Almond Honey Tea

adapted from The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Dairy-Free Eating

Ingredients

1/2 cup filtered water

1/2 almond milk {my favorite is Pacific Natural Foods}

1 TBS local, organic honey

1 black tea of your choice {totally loving earl grey and english breakfast these days}

Directions

1. water and almond milk into a small saucepan

2. high heat until almost boiling, remove from heat

3. add tea bag and steep 3-4 minutes

4. pour into mug, stir in honey

5. stop wishing alternative milks had the same texture as cow’s milk

+++++

What about you? What would you do if you just found out your favorite food is making you sick?

2. Does this sound like Chris Isaak to anyone else?

3. The Days of Lore interviewed Rhett Miller and I am jealous. You can read it here.
