for the last couple of months i have been pairing my books i’m reading with themed appropriate music. yes i am that much of a dork. it started in knox when i was reading harry potter at a Scottish bar, aka my own little leaky cauldron. then the hobbit was paired with the chieftains, a 17th century pirate book with mozart, a book about paris and john singer sargent to edith piaf and now a 19th century biography on the most influential woman in the middle east, gertrude bell paired with a pandora station of african/middle eastern music.
all i can say is this has made me crave curry, curry, lamb, curry, hummus, and more curry. for meatless monday i made some curried quinoa that had craisins and almonds in it and topped it with a couple of poached eggs. along with some milk and honey bread, which is actually an ancient middle eastern dish. (don’t ask where i got it because there is a long food story behind that as well) yum to the taste buds!
