Triple shot for 5/31/14

This triple shot is a little different, it's not going to be three songs from the same artist, why?  well because this triple shot or at least the first two songs are for my friend over at KensWorld , they are songs that were featured prominently in movies from the mid to late seventies.

The first one, I'm sure that most of us know, it is from the rock opera done by Pink Floyd in 1979.

The second is coming to you from 1975's Rocky Horror Picture Show, which was a musical, comedy, horror film.

The third is a song from one of my all time favorite movies, The Warriors.   The Warriors, a thriller, drama, came out in 1979 and become a cult classic.

Enjoy your weekend!

Food for Friday 5/30/14

I know it's coming up on summer and the temps are rising, but my daughter found this mushroom soup recipe floating around in the wilds of cyber space.  It sounded good, so I made it and it was not only good, it was really good.  :)

Russian Mushroom & Potato soup


1.  Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix in leeks and carrots, and cook 5     minutes. Pour in broth. Season with dill, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Mix in potatoes, cover, and cook 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender but firm. Remove and discard the bay leaf. 
2.  Melt the remaining butter in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the mushrooms 5 minutes, until lightly   browned. Stir into the soup. 
3.  In a small bowl, mix the half-and-half and flour until smooth. Stir into the soup to thicken. Garnish each bowl of soup with fresh dill to serve.

 Have a fantastic Friday!
