We spent 10 hours outside burning brush today. The whole day outside around a fire, it doesn’t get any better than that. I went into the house as the Randy Bachman show came on, the show’s theme was “Country Rock”. I grabbed the A Musical Feast Cookbook and I began flipping through the pages until I could found something simple and easy to make. I settled on Steven Tyler’s Bombay Noodles with Peanut Sauce. Every once in a while it’s nice to have a meatless meal. I have to say the photos came out dull and boring but the flavours were very nice. In my opinion, this meal was more suited to a nice lunch than a dinner, but that’s my fault. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time inside cooking. As the water boiled and the peanut sauce simmered the music the caught my attention the most was that of Ian & Sylvia Tyson’s Four Strong Winds. Of course theirs is the country version which is more folkie than country but then Randy played Neil Young’s version. I guess that was to demonstrate where rock met country? In any case, it doesn’t matter to me who sings that song, I still love it. I’ve even heard it sung by a choir and it never fails to warm my heart. Either way, it is one of my very favourite songs. As for Steven Tyler’s Bombay Noodles..... I would make it again!
