5 Senses Tour

Continuing the tour with Bohemian Twilight!! Indulge your senses!!

Movie: Woody Allen's
"Bullets over Broadway"
I LOVE Woody Allen movies and have quite a collection.. This is one I highly recommend...very entertaining and funny!!!

Food:  "Beef" Stew

This has all the taste of a meat stew without the husband is a big meat eater but I do manage to get him to eat a vegetarian meal once in a while...He loves this one....and it is so good with homemade biscuits!!!

The secret ingredient is the wheat gluten...the Westsoy is the brand I use.... you can get this at Whole Foods...(please forgive the quality of the pics)

This is a simple receipe...I cut the cubes up even smaller as they tend to swell in the liquid and will give you more bites...Then brown them up a little in a small amount of oil...

Then I  precook the vegetables..Basic veggies are  2 large potatoes, 1/2 cup peas, 2 carrots cut up, 1/2 small onion. But I always use something different like a parsnip, some turnip or broccoli once in a while for variety..

Then I make a sauce from 2 cups water( that I cooked the veggies in), 4 Tblsp cornstarch and a touch of Gravy Master......Add right to the gluten bits and thicken...then add your veggies...  

It is delicious and warms you up on the cold night!

Book: Frankenstein by Mary Shelly 

Read this from a psychological view...I took a English Literature class in which the professor gave us a completely different view of this book...The movies do not come close to how great this book is....

Music:   Loreena McKennitt 's Book of Secrets 
What a fantastic can hear many different influences but the Celtic sounds are what I enjoy the fact I have yet to hear one of her songs I did not like!!  A very talented lady....

Design: Big Baggy Sweaters.. nothing better <3

I am going to have to try that wheat gluten. I haven't eaten beef in over a year, and I have been thinking about a stew but somehow chicken or turkey didn't sound appealing.Thanks for the idea!!

Ooooh, I love *everything* in your post! The Book of Secrets is one of my favorite albums - really magical. I'll have to read Frankenstein again; it's been a long time.

Baggy sweaters are my default clothing item when I'm back from a long day at the office!

I'm looking forward to seeing Allen's "Midnight in Paris". Have you seen it?

Loving those baggy sweaters! Can't recall if I've seen Bullets over Broadway--must check. And I've never read Frankenstein--something I definitely want to do!
