Chickpeas and Basil Moroccan Style

Basil - think pad kra pow! Thai stir fry basil

This is a super quick and easy hot dish you can whip up whenever you want something fresh and filling with a little kick. The basil I grew this summer is still alive and well. Yesterday, I harvested a big bag of leaves. Lunch time rolled around today and I intended to make Thai stir fry basil, but I didn't have any celery. So, I…

Here's a mountain song you'll love. The first link is a version by Dirk Powell on YouTube. I like the music/singing on this one best and it includes lyrics. The second link is an artist named Luke Abbott who sings the same song and plays it on the guitar.  Luke Abbott is such an excellent guitar player, in his attic! I am certain it only looks easy when Luke plays it. I bet it would sound great on a charango. If you look at the comments,…

Ye Olde Zoobird Bookshelf


Ola, dear Zoobird readers! The Zoobird bookshelf is becoming a lot of fun, so I thought I'd take a minute to talk about it. Powell's Books is a bookshop in Portland, OR. It's one of the largest best independent bookshops in the world. Bigger isn't necessarily better, so I rethought that…
