Good recipes to share with friends.
Here’s a fairly easy dish to whip up for the next potluck, and it’s super tasty to boot. Easily swap out the apple for another fruit (like raisins) and the pumpkin seeds can be replaced with another nut (like pistachios). Basically, use what you have; carrots are really good at being friends with different flavours.
While we’re on the topic of friends, let’s talk about Friends, the lo-fi indie pop group from Brooklyn, New York. There’s something so charming about their colourful 80s-inspired style. They came out with a fun album a couple years ago, but it seems these Friends have been keeping quiet recently. Still, I love this song:
Somebody recently pointed out that the TV sitcom Friends went off the air 10 years ago. The last episode seemed like such a big deal. Now, I spend more time with friends than watching television and I feel out of the loop.
As far as TV goes, my BFF and I are watching M*A*S*H, which means I’m 30 to 40 some years behind. The show holds up though. Not to mention, M*A*S*H’s final episode is still the most watched series finale in history. Watching classic shows is like drinking well vinted wines; they’ve had time to age and develop flavour. The not-so-good shows seem to get forgotten and so no time is wasted on them.
My friends always get together to watch Firefly (and sports). Are there any other popular TV shows to watch with friends? Maybe next time you have a viewing party, you can stir up some of this friendly salad…
Tender Loving Carrot Salad
Good for a twelve-person potluck.
