This morning at 2 am I opened the first box of books sent by the printer 3 days ago from Saint Louis and everything looked good. I started placing the cd in sleeves and securing them nicely in the back of the book. Mic left a few hours ago with the first 15 books fully assembled and ready for sale at a concert at Columbia College with Paul Contos and Dr. Rod Harris. http://www.uniondemocrat.com/News/Entertainment/Jazz-series-features-McFerrins-return
I have tried to put together a thoughtful book of recipes, original songs and ingredient information at an affordable price. So, $7 was my goal and I made it. There are 7 supper recipes and 7 songs for $7. Email me with orders and I can calculate shipping and get them to you for Christmas. Mailing address for checks or money orders is Julia Gillette @ P.O. Box 244 West Point, CA 95255. Thanks!

I have been very busy writing recipes and testing them out on my loved ones. Mic has been in Seattle for the week at Jazz Alley and I couldn’t make it, because I am still getting Sunshine settled. Jazz Alley has a good menu and offers several organic items, but their chef recently left, so they are going through some changes.
We will be heading to several gigs in Texas and also in New Orléans in about a month and I will be reviewing some restaurants as we travel.
Recently I decided that I must make, not buy corn tortillas, because finding a good tortilla without preservatives is hard to track down….. I bought the masa flour, a tortilla press and cast iron pan. It was not as easy as it seems. After 3 trial and errors I finally got it. The picture below shows what I considered a food resembling a corn tortilla. They tasted good too. I am developing a new nacho dish that is sure to please. Well, it has been fun and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Tortillas...a funky picture, but they were good.
