If you have not heard the tear jerker “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools ” released by Tim McGraw last fall; grab your tissues now because you know I’m gonna share it at the end.
The storytelling in this one caught my ear because it made me wonder why Tim was melancholy and what WORDS I would offer.
Well Tim, here are some things that do mix…and I use them every time to chase my blues away:
Fajitas and Margaritas
Bread pudding and rum sauce
This is how to forget your troubles for sure; the hot buttered rum makes this awesome ! Have a cup of coffee with it.
Brown sugar and oatmeal
Not just for breakfast; takes only a few minutes to make !
Read the directions on the Oatmeal box; no special skills needed; crank up your music.
Fried shrimp and cole slaw
May need to head for the nearest seafood restaurant for this, but it will be worth the ride !
Now, let’s hear the song that brought me to write this blog. And, if you have some blues chasing food ideas; send them to me…and I’ll send them to Tim !
