Hiya all. Please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm just pretty much keeping to myself lately, and there's not a lot going on that you haven't already heard me discuss. But on the plus side, at least other than the world being more scary than ever, I guess it's good that things are otherwise quiet.
Before I forget, a big THANK YOU to Vera - last week, she posted a recipe on her blog for Curried Shrimp Chowder, and this past Saturday, I made the vegetarian version (skipping the bacon ingredient and using vegetable stock) and oh is is good! We had it with some breadsticks that The Tim had made, and it was one of the best meals we've had for a long time. As she also mentions in the blog post, it makes a lot, so yesterday I had some of the leftovers for lunch. If you are a shrimp lover, give it a try - you will not be disappointed.
I did not think to take a picture of it until after we finished eating, but it looks as good as it tastes, you'll just have to try it yourself! 😊
On Sunday, for the first time in two years, we went to a live performance. The Philadelphia Orchestra was doing a concert version of the music from the movie "Fiddler on the Roof" that had been arranged by John Williams. A group from the music and theater department at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor were playing the roles. It was so well done and so enjoyable! Before entering the venue, you had to show proof of vaccination with your driver's license or other ID, and everyone in the audience had to remain masked the whole time. At first it seemed kind of jarring to be in a place with so many people again, but to be honest, once the performance began, you forgot about everything but what was happening on stage. Of course, The Tim was especially interested, since in college he played the part of the butcher Lazer Wolf. And honestly, where just about any musical is concerned, if someone is sick at the last minute and the understudy is also sick, either one of us could fill in ... not well, but we know all of the lyrics! 😜
That's really all I have to tell you about at the moment. Have a good day, and take care.
Meanwhile, I hope this will give you a reason to chuckle today:
