Music To Cook By Monday


When I was newly married, I wasn’t really much of a cook.  It just wasn’t a priority until my husband and I were transferred to Australia.  In Australia, we were constantly invited over to friends houses for dinner parties because Australians are really friendly like that.  All of a sudden I was faced with the realization that  if we wanted to invite some friends to OUR house, we needed to learn how to cook!  I learned gradually and there were many good friends who endured my test dinners.  Thankfully!  But while I was there, a book came out called Hot Food Cool Jazz to raise money for a charity.  It was a great cookbook with music to go with each recipe.  I was soon making curries to jazzy tunes that matched the food. It really made the whole thing so fun.

I decided to try a little matching game with some music I like today.  Here’s my take on some Music to Cook by….Happy Monday!!
