happy birthday, mom! {a few days late}

my mom's birthday was wednesday the 16th
and, no i didn't forget...

i've been searching everywhere
for this picture of her
{just found it!}
which i used to make this
a long, long time ago.
{when i was in college}

i love you so much, mom.
happy birthday!

flashing back

i'm feeling a little spooked.
in a good way.
i was searching for a video of sugar magnolia
to go along with ned's tie-dye for yesterday's post,
and i found these 3 shows that i saw long ago
at alpine valley in east troy, wisconsin.
it was amazing enough to find all three shows,
and then i looked at the date...

25 years ago today
{look for me in the crowd}
note: this video switches at 35:00 to the show on the 19th,
then switches back.

25 years ago tomorrow

25 years ago saturday

p.s. i just have to mention,
part of what makes this so mind-blowing,
is that when i made my way down
to section 1, row RR,
there was someone sitting in seat 121.
in 5 years, he would be emily's dad.

broccoli with cashews

i saved this recipe from simply organic,
a cookbook i checked out from the library years ago.

goes great with black bean burgers
& good barbecue potato chips.

broccoli with cashews
1 large bunch broccoli
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup raisins
salt & pepper

cut broccoli into florets.
blanch in boiling water 3 - 5 minutes.
then plunge into ice water to stop cooking.
mix mayo, vinegar, sugar, onion.
add broccoli , cashews, raisins.
mix well & season with salt & pepper.

i didn't measure & it still turned out great.
also, i didn't have red wine vinegar,
so i used balsamic & apple cider vinegars.
