Monday Meanderings in Red


'Peace' in Estonian

Today is a red day.
Don't ask me why.
It just is!

I just spent a very pleasant time listening to some of my favorites on YouTube. 
I like quite a wide variety of music genres.
Even if you think you are not a country western music lover,
I think you will enjoy this song by Dolly Parton:

 'He's Alive'

found at
Here's another one I like:
'Jesus and Gravity'

unknown source - it looks like a vintage pattern envelope illustration to me

Here is a recipe from
Colorado Cache Cookbook 10th Anniversary Edition
c.1978, Junior League of Denver, Inc.
'Caliente Salad'
serves 8
1 15'2 oz can kidney beans, drained (they're red!)
1 cucumber, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced (but you could use red pepper!)
3 large tomatoes, diced (they're red!)
4 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbled
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. chili powder (it's red!)
dash of red cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups lettuce, torn into small pieces
>Combine all ingredients except bacon and lettuce.
Add bacon and lettuce just before serving.
By the way, 'caliente' means 'hot'.

"...and whenever I'm in a situation where I'm wearing the same as 600 other people
and doing the same thing as 600 other people,
looking back,
I always found ways to make myself different,
whether it be having a red lining inside of my jacket,
having red shoes,
it hasn't changed."

-Jeremy Irons
