My Love | The “Feel-good” Songs Challenge – Day 28

Baaaah! Two more days of this challenge of mine! I can’t say that I don’t enjoy in music and blog and everything they do when combined, but I love my freedom, what can I do? I love posting when I want to not because I have to. 🙂

Where and when I post? All I need really is a laptop and a wifi. 😀 I get ideas any time of the day/night. I ponder over them and think how it would look and what kind of medium I am going to put, if I’m going to share on social networks… My posts happen in my head. When it gets to the point that I am writing them, they are 90% already worked out. That of course, does not apply to the Daily Prompts, but for everything else – yes.

Today, June 28, I bring you the song I listened to probably over thousand times, no kidding. It is “My Love” of Justin Timberlake. I like his new songs like “Mirrors” and “Suit and Tie”, but I have a special relationship with this song… It was the “Golden Age” of his music when he cooperated with Timbaland (I made the Golden Age up just now). You ask why? I say;

Timberlake + Timbaland = Magic

😀
What other could happen when a top class producer and top class musician work together?

I like the song, the beat, the lyrics, the choreography, the vibe… I like it even now, 8 years from its original publishing.

Enjoy, the goosebumps start at 1:34 😉

Tomato + tuna + yogurt = you won’t believe

It’s yummy time!

For today your experienced cook Ivy (not really) has prepared something difficult (not really). So, let’s get going! 😉

I wanted to make stuffed mushrooms for a while now, but then I found an amazing recipe online for tomato with tuna stuffing and I was immediately going “Ooooo”. I like to try things I never made. The original recipe had corn and some spices which I didn’t have, so I modified the original to my own version.

Mix yogurt with tuna and olives, make it how you like it… Add more olives, or tuna, or less yogurt if you want too. Stuff the tomatoes and left in the refrigerator for a few hours. Serve cold.

I made home-made version of bruschetti with it. It was really easy, so there goes a recipe for that.

Bruschetti With Bacon

IMG_0794
Ingredients:

Bread (Old bread the best)
Bacon
Oregano
Garlic in powder
Ketchup

Directions:

I cut three slices of bread and put them in a pan on a thin layer of oil. Fry the slices on both sides just for a minute or two. Put away and put oregano and garlic on with ketchup so the spices stay on the slice. (I put them additionally in a toast maker before putting the spices on) Put the bacon on top and you’ve made yourself a tasty crunchy snack.

I hope you like this, it really makes quick and tasty summer dinner or breakfast. Or lunch, it has no boundaries. 😀 This is an entry to Fiesta Friday #22 over at Andie’s. Go and check out the other entries!

I was taught that yogurt and tuna and tomato do not go together. They do. I wonder how many things I am still listening to (obeying) without even questioning them? It makes me wonder…
