2017 June 28

Learn more about Opulent Mobility 2017!FLORAL notes

I don’t stock saffron in my pantry.  As much as I love the opulence & indulgence of a saffron-scented paella, the truth is that I get more mileage from luscious fats like unfiltered olive oil or nutty sesame oil.  I can only punctuate my menus with such an elaborate spice on occasion, but I use oils in every dish.  Opulence is user-defined & experiential, and this next Call wants your vision of the opulent.  Take a look…

I am a little obsessed with citrus pasta salad this summer, but I’m known for cravings not unlike a pregnant woman.

Today I had a view of 7 U.S. States (Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama) during lunch at Cafe 7, high atop Lookout Mountain.  I navigated the short climb through Rock City up to Lover’s Leap and took the obligatory selfie with my husband before being seated at the last available table for late lunch.  After a weekend of hard work on the road, I felt a sense of culinary karmic justice when my fried green tomato sandwich arrived at my table topped with Benton’s bacon, avocado puree & chipotle mayonnaise. It was a photo finish to a spectacular day.  This next Call could be YOUR photo finish.  Take a look…

I have been having the oddest dreams.  I think it is related to the new version of melatonin supplements I am taking before bed.  As you might know, my dreams are often about food.  The most commonly reoccurring dream involves my being chased by Swiss chard –specifically red shard wearing yellow sneakers.  Yes, I know it is weird.  No, I don’t have an explanation.  This next Call is all about dreams and you don’t have to explain them either.  Interpretation is wide open…

The visual artist can offer safe refuge to the viewer, a connection to these dreams at our invitation as we appreciate the creative avenues we discover through their art. The artist has this opportunity to present a dream as a hazy filtered reality from representational memories to an explosion of abstract & surrealistic imagery—all of which may be emotionally treasured as his or her own.” –art-competition.net

I am trying to lose weight.  Yes, again. I don’t really care about my size.  I am trying to get off some meds to make me less tied to doctors & pharmacists, less tied to one place, more able to travel.   Regular readers won’t be surprised to hear  I’m jones-ing for goat cheese & olives right now.  What ordinary item do you take for granted?  Is it the bacon on your BLT?  Or is it actually the mayo?  Is it the peanut butter on your PBJ? Or is it actually the drizzle of honey?  What I have learned is that I don’t often miss the star of the show.  I miss the little extra bits that keep meals from being plain or dry or ordinary.  This next Call wants to know about the ordinary bits that mean the world to you. Take a look…
