Monday is laundry day
Back to the evening festivities for just a moment. Gene did a Gazpacho from our plethora of tomatoes -- I am not complaining -- using our friend Claudia's "absolutely authentic" recipe from Barcelona. And I fixed a Watermelon, Feta and Black Olive Salad from Nigella Lawson that I had heard on NPR last week. Lots of time spent taking the seeds out of the watermelon, but it was well worth the effort. Add whole flat parsley leaves, chopped mint leaves, red onion soaked in lime juice and olive oil to the ingredients of the title and you have an incredibly tasty and unusual salad that will cool you off on a hot summer day. Here is the watermelon recipe and several other "stay cool dishes" for you: Nigella Lawson on NPR.
Since you have come this far, let me recommend another pleasure for you: a film about Piotr Anderszewski, called Unquiet Traveler. It was the reason why we his fans gathered last night. He is a Gilmore Artist, whom we have heard play several times at the biennial Gilmore Keyboard Festival in Kalamazoo. So you too can see and hear a part of this beautiful film about Anderszewski and the music he loves and plays, here is an excerpt from an Unquiet Traveler You Tube. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
