08 February 2009 – The Grammys
The 51st Grammy Awards are on tonight! I hear that Radiohead is doing a great live number with a high school marching band. Carrie Underwood is performing, and she is always good live. I also hear that Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus may be singing together, but I am not sure what I think about that combo. I like Taylor but can live without Ms. Cyrus! I came down with a cold over the weekend which is not a lot of fun. I have not had a true "head cold" in a while and hope it clears up soon. Anyway, I am not really up for cooking a Grammy-worthy dinner, so I settled for chicken soup. However, I am doing a slight moderation by making a Asian style chicken potsticker soup with flash fried wonton strips. I added some thai chiles, garlic and ginger to spice things up. Hopefully, it will help clear the crud in my head! As an extra bonus, I found this great clip from the 1975 Grammy broadcast. (below) The oh-so-fabulous Gladys Knight performs the nominees for "Song of the Year," and she rocks. One of the nominees was the late Peter Allen for his composition of the Olivia Newton-John classic, "I Honestly Love You." He lost out to the Bergmans for "The Way We Were," but Gladys stole the show. Enjoy, and may the best singers win.
