Tuesday's Tune - June 18th, 2013

Just discovered this musical genius a few weeks ago! Robert Delong is an Electronic Musician from Bothell Washington, and I am completely obsessed with his EP "Global Concepts" that he released in 2012. I literally almost jumped for joy when I read that he was performing at Osheaga on Sunday (Aug 4th), the day I'm going.

This is no doubt my summer song, love! I can guarantee he's going to "make us fucking dance"! 
Here's "Global Concepts" by Robert Delong.
 






RIGHT? soo good.
Cheers!

Tuesday's Tune - June 11th, 2013

RAIN, RAIN & more RAIN!!! Can you smell the bitterness? So sick of this!


Well, since it's cuddle up on the couch weather, he's a nice mellow song for you.
Off the Local Natives' new album called "Hummingbird" released on January 29th, 2013, here's "Ceilings".





Cheers!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Although the weather has been complete garbage for the past week or two, today’s sun & heat is giving me hope for this Summer!
Now if you’re like me, Summer means light, easy meals. I find myself always on the go, and therefore spending hours in the kitchen on a week night, isn’t always ideal!
I came up with this meal in early Spring, in hope that it would save me from ordering out, on nights that I don't feel like cooking. It’s easy, healthy, and DELICIOUS!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

·         2 cooked chicken breasts* (this makes enough for 6 wraps) season with cumin, paprika, curry, sea salt & pepper. Baked at 350 for 20-25 minutes
·         1 head of Iceberg Lettuce
·         ½ cup full fat Goat yogurt
·         1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
·         ¼ teaspoon ground Paprika
·         1 tablespoon Lemon zest
·         1 tablespoon fresh chopped Cilantro
·         2 minced Garlic cloves
·         ¼ cup chopped Cashews
·         Sea salt & Pepper
·         Coleslaw mix (Red, Green cabbage & Carrot… this is sold at Adonis or any grocery store)



*I baked the chicken the night before, I prefer the chicken to be cold in the wraps. Plus, with having the chicken already cooked, this makes this recipe even easier! Note that if you’re not a fan of curry, you can season the chicken however you like.

1)    Fry coleslaw mix with a bit of Olive oil (and if you want an extra kick, add in some dried hot chili flakes)
2)    In a small to medium sized bowl, mix yogurt, mustard, paprika, garlic and lemon zest.
3)    Chop the chicken into small cubes, chop cashews and add both ingredients to the yogurt mixture.
4)    Add the fresh chopped cilantro, salt and pepper. Mix all together.
5)    Delicately unroll lettuce, place fried coleslaw and about ¼ cup of the chicken/ yogurt mixture.
6)    Roll & Eat!


Picture quality is pretty terrible... sorry!




Enjoy!!!

Cheers!

Heard this song on Sirius Satellite the other night, and totally fell in love. His voice so different (which I love), but also, really incredible! Here's Breezeblocks by Alt-J!
