Yesterday was a good day for little, old me...
And the silly things that make this silly girl giddy.
Two of my favorites came back with new happiness for me to enjoy!
One, Miss Cyrus released the new music video of her cover of Bob Dylan's Lonesome When You Go, celebrating 50 Years of Amnesty International. I love the video - the abandoned house and how everyone is by their lonesome playing their instruments. It's solemn, pensive and perfect; focusing on the music - not on Miley, not on costumes, not on dance moves. I love her voice here too. It's mournful and full of sentiment. So not Hannah Montana. And so not Untamed. I love those two versions of her, too (of course)...but this feels like what she is meant to do. I've always thought vocally she'd knock it out of the park (and finally be taken seriously as an artist) if she'd just shake the fear of her Father and Godmother's country music shadows and embrace the folk/country genre rather than the pop. To cover someone like Dylan takes some serious guts, no matter what the cause. And to do it well....well now I'm just waiting impatiently for a new album with more of THIS.
Here's what will be on our table this week:
Monday - Open faced tuna melts and caesar salad
Tuesday - Spaghetti and meatballs with garlic knots
Wednesday - Chinese New Year dinner - Chinese chicken salad, egg rolls and almond cookies
Thursday - Book Club. I'm bringing herbed turkey meatballs with cranberry bbq sauce
Friday - Roasted turkey breasts, escarole and cannelinni beans, and 5 minute Artisan bread (both recipes from the Farm to Feast I went to.)
