Diana Krall - Richstream (4)


“To love someone with all of your heart requires reaching them where they are with the only words they can understand.” ― Shannon L. Alder

I was watching a Clint Eastwood movie where Diana Krall was featured at the end of the movie, and I fell in love with her sound. It has a jazz feel and she is an awesome piano player. 

She just recently released a new album by the name of This Dream of You which is highly recommended but then I recommend all of her music. 

The music I am featuring is titled "This Dream of You" (1)which is the 9th track from her most recent album released on September 25, 2020.

This Dream of You (3)
Diana Krall

How long can I stay in this nowhere cafe?
Before night turns into day
I wonder why I'm so frightened of dawn
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

There's a moment when all old things become new again
But that moment might have come and gone
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

I look away, but I keep seeing it
I don't wanna believe, but I keep believing it
Shadows dance upon the wall
Shadows that seem to know it all

Am I too blind to see?
Is my heart playing tricks on me?
I'm lost in the crowd
All my tears are gone
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

Everything I touch seems to disappear
Everywhere I turn, you are always here
I'll run this race until my earthly death
I'll defend this place with my dying breath

From a cheerless room in a curtained gloom
I saw a star from heaven fall
I turned and looked again
But it was gone
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

This Dream Of You lyrics © Bob Dylan Music Co.

You can listen to this music and hear goodbyes and then you can rewind and hear love. I choose to rewind for today and hear love, hope and dreams. I am hopelessly in love and it's my Birthday after all. This music was selected when I was leaving a friend in the summer 2013. I found out that he had deceived me and was married. So, I said good bye. That was then and not now....

I hope this music sets the tone for a wonderful summer afternoon as it has for me.
Peace Diana

... food is not simply organic fuel to keep body and soul together, it is a perishable art that must be savored at the peak of perfection.”

― E.A. Bucchianeri

I am going to go all out and cook. My Sunday dinner menu will consist of a broiled thin sliced T-Bone and jumbo shrimp, re-fried black beans, asparagus and an avocado/tomato salad.

T-Bones & Shrimp: Broiled
I used Weber's steak seasoning, dash of Cheyenne pepper and garlic power with freshly squeezed lemon juice cooked on the lower rack on "high broil" until brown and the turnover, adding more lemon juice and place on the upper rack for about 5 to 7 minutes. This will depend on if you like rare, medium rare or well done, which is my personal preference.

I used Weber's New Orleans shrimp seasoning, lemon juice, Cheyenne pepper and a dash of garlic.

Re-fried Black Beans
In one of my previous post, you can find out how I make black bean soup. I had some black beans left over from last Sunday (about 3 ½ cups) and wanted to utilized but in a different manner. So all you have to do is drain all the juice off and place a heated pan with two table spoons of oil. Then use your handy smasher. Once smashed, add ½ fresh jalapenos without seeds, a ½ cup of minced red onion and one small minced clove of garlic. Let cook for about ten minutes on a medium heat. When complete and ready to eat, top the beans off with crumbled “Ranchero” cheese and a couple of leaves of cilantro.

I just steam for about 7 to 10 minutes because it is very important to never over cook vegetables. Once complete I add a table spoon of light butter, salt pepper. I like to keep this item light.

Avocado/Tomato Salad
You will need to cubed fresh avocados (remember they must to be firm) mixed in with diced tomatoes (firm), ¼ cup diced red onion and mince the other half of the jalapeno mentioned above. Then add two freshly squeezed lemons.

I always eat my food with freshly made corn tortillas and when it's done I will take a picture.
Buen Provech! Diana

My featured artist this evening is a dinner favorite, Diana Krall. The song selection is "Squeeze Me" (2) with a jazz genre. Also, I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Squeeze Me" (3)
Treat me sweet and gentle 
When you hold me tight 
Just squeeze me 
But please don't tease me 

I get sentimental 
When you hold me tight 
Come and squeeze me 
But please don't tease me 

Missing you since you went away 
Sing the blues most everyday 
Counting the nights and longing for you 

I'm in the mood to let you know 
I never knew I loved you so 
Please tell me that you love me too 

For when I get that feeling 
I'm in ??
Come on squeeze me 

But please don't tease me
