    Thursdays #490- Happy birthday, Degas

    A toast to art appreciation ... July 19 is the anniversary of Impressionist artist Edgar Degas. I love his paintings of ballerinas - and his paintings of other subjects, too. So, here's to a summer Thursday with a Paris Cocktail...

    1 oz gin
    1 oz dry vermouth
    1 oz creme de cassis

    Shake ingredients well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon peel, and serve.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    It may be time to fire up the jukebox and clear the dance floor.


    I don't look good in a tutu, so I'll leave that to the experts!


    I'll mix and pour....maybe we can have some fancy treats for a snack.

    I have a newer recipe for a zucchini appetizer - I'll bring those for y'all. The art theme is appropriate - this weekend in Baltimore is Artscape - the largest free outdoor art festival in the country!

    A cold rootbeer float for me please. This heat has me sick to my stomach at the thought of solid food.
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    Okra?? ICK!!! - I think it's slimy and nasty!

    However, rootbeer floats, strawberries and ice cream - now you're talkin'..... I'll be back later for one of those.

    In the meantime - happy Monday everybody.

    A good vinegar-y okra - pickled with red pepper flakes is the greatest in a bloody mary.


    I want fish tacos and not the Gorton's breaded pollock in a tortilla....

    Zucchini?

    I am there!

    Does corn have gluten that bother you? Just curious! I know wheat and its relatives are evil to your tummy ... (whereas the fish itself is (sigh) to mine!

    Corn is ok, but not so easy to find here (ie, corn chips, corn tortillas). We have them in rice format, but getting sooooo tired of them.

    You can make homemade corn tortillas with a mix called Maseca

    http://www.mimaseca.com/en/

    It's a good mix and if you are handy in the kitchen, you can do quite a bit with it.
