Richard Thompson - White Room - (originally performed by Cream)
Pink - White Rabbit - (originally performed by Jefferson Airplane)
These are only some of the songs I grew up with, many of which carry layers of evocative memory.
In the interest of using some of my stored preserves, I am changing up which one I use in my daily yoghurt mixture*, as each little 4 oz jar gets emptied. So far the newest one, saffron pomelo, is a winner, although the lemon/fig/port I just finished was quite tasty too! These are not the flavors one would find at the grocery store...

today's gratitude - Entirely unexpectedly, the phone rang with a call from my friend N, who in the midst of all the medical madness, wanted to let me know that a group of folks she worked with had come to the aid of a mushroom farmer who had no way to sell his current crop. N is sending me a 5# box of oyster mushrooms, via a fellow surgeon who lives near me!
* my daily yoghurt mixture is what I began eating for breakfast post-periodontal-surgery, when my usual breakfast (a tablespoonful of raw rolled oats soaked overnight, then mixed with some chopped nuts, chopped fresh fruit, a teaspoon of flaxseed meal, and either yoghurt or milk) was no longer an option, as it requires chewing. Instead, a scoop of whey protein powder is mixed with greek yoghurt, the same teaspoon of flaxseed meal, and a teaspoon of homemade jam, preserves, or syrup. Add a little water if necessary to get a smooth spoonable consistency. For the weeks I couldn't eat regular food, it made a nutritious and palatable meal.
