Today’s Recipe and Location: Black Bean Soup
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
I am a new convert to black beans. I loved them in the chicken tortilla soup that I made a while ago. I am not sure that I want to tackle this soup because it has a lot of black beans. I have to slowly work my way up to eating a lot of them. Maybe this winter when I become a soup freak, I will try this soup out, but for now – I’ll just share it with all of you.
When I was driving out in the country, the songs from the musical Oklahoma instantly popped into my mind. What line would you think of when you see this view? Don't page down or you'll be cheating!
The song was named “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” and the line was, “The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, and it looks like its climbin' clear up to the sky.”
Did ya know it? I may need to go back and rewatch that movie. I love musicals and what a fun way to spend a few hours.
Are you old enough to remember your childhood records? I loved those old Vinyl records, both 45s and LPs a.k.a. 33 1/3. I remember having a stack of records.
My earliest memory is a single from The Lennon Sisters. I specifically remember Lida Rose, sitting in my Dad’s office listening to the record.
Another favorite was an oldie at the time. I loved the McQuire Sisters. My favorite McQuire songs were Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and Sugar Time. They were such lively, happy songs.
Even today, I love Simon and Garfunkel. The Sound of Silence and Scarborough Fair were, and are, two favorites. Their music was so different from so many others except maybe Peter, Paul, and Mary whom I also adored.
And then there were the Beatles. At Haines Middle School I had to perform a gymnastics routine and was able to pick my own song. The song I picked was Revolution. I loved that song! It is a miracle that I actually remember that selection. My other favorite at the time was Let It Be. I always thought Paul was the cute one! How bout you?
