Pink Martini Concert


I am really enjoying my summer so far, lots of golf and now a Pink Martini concert.  Amber and I enjoyed an evening of fabulous music.  This band sounds exactly the same on stage as they do in their CDs.  The music is incredible and China's voice is divine.  If you ever have the opportunity to see them, do so by all means.



"Pink Martini is a musical group that was formed in 1994 by pianist Thomas Lauderdale in Portland,
Oregon. Describing itself as a "little orchestra," its music crosses genres such as classical, latin, jazz and classic pop. The lead vocalist and principal songwriter for Pink Martini is China Forbes."  Via here

Gluten Free Frittata

Ray-Ray came to visit, which gave me an opportunity to try a recipe I've wanted to try for a while. Ray-ray is gluten free, so I wanted to make a breakfast that was delicious and that accommodated her restrictions. My family won't eat spinach, which is why I hadn't made this before. It was delicious!! A keeper for sure! This came from the magazine Real Simple from last year:



Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Mix in the spinach, Cheddar, and ham.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the skillet, stir once, and transfer the skillet to oven. Cook until the eggs are set, 12 to 14 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, the remaining tablespoon of oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the lettuce and toss to coat. Serve with the frittata.



The Curse of Pinterest

I love me some Pinterest, where else can I simultaneously want to run 26.2 miles while eating a samoa cake, knitting yarn fruit, and decoupaging furniture?!? However it's easy to forget that some of those pretty pictures belong to artists, and those images need to be credited and used with permission as that is said artists livelihood. Here at Wrinkly, we do our best to credit everyone whose image/craft/idea we have used. Sadly, we may have missed links or the links may not have been available in a couple of instances, and to those artists/crafters/bloggers, we sincerely apologize. If we have used your image without the proper shout out, please let us know, so we may remedy the situation immediately.
