Dinner with the girls.......it was not only delicious, but an evening well spent. The Movie "Australia" was well worth watching....in fact I had to leave early, but I fully intend to rent the movie and finish watching it...........
My contribution to dinner was Roasted Asparagus with Mushrooms and Cherry Tomatoes.
This is NOT a photo of my dish, but this is where I harvested my "modified" recipe. Check out www.HeinenDistribution.com for the full recipe.....................
Roasted Asparagus with Mushrooms & Cherry Tomatoes.
Wash & Prep the Asparagus, Mushroom and Tomatoes (I used "Cherry Tomatoes" cut in half).
Place all ingredients in a dish, add 2 tablespoons of oil - I used Olive, Salt & Pepper to taste, with some fresh home grown Rosemary.
Mix, so all the veggies are coated with the oil & seasonings.
Place on a baking sheet, oven temperature at 400 degrees, and bake for 15 minutes.
Disclosure - not a photo of my recipe - forgot to take one!
The Movie "Australia" Story & Directed by Baz Luhrmann
It was really cool - I know that says a lot, but I don't want to give the story away, plus I have to finish watching it myself.
I will say that it was set in the Australian outback, you've got the good guy, who doesn't want anything to do with being a good guy, the bad guy, who want's it all, as they generally do, and the strong woman - who is used to being in charge, giving orders, not taking them............All the makings of a great night "in" with a movie.
Want something fun to do this weekend?
How about coming out to the Polka Klub, now you just might have some fun!
The Rhinelanders are playing - a LIVE band!
Sunday, 3: 00 to 7:00 PM at the Denver Kickers Club, Golden
We generally dance the "Polka," but also line dances and some country 2-step.
Myth: #1: I need a partner to dance with - Nope, not true. We have several single gentleman, and ladies to dance with.
Myth: #2: I should dress in the traditional costumes, like the picture above - absolutely NOT. We all wear sensible, clean, neat clothing with comfortable shoes.
Men generally were either pants and a shirt, sometimes they were "gentlemen shorts," if it's particularly warm.
Ladies also wear summer pants, walking shorts, skirts and dresses. Check out the website www.DenverPolka.com to see what is worn as a rule.
Of course you can wear the traditional dress, if you want - photo above.

Why? Good question. Veggies counterbalance the Acidity in our bodies, thus making the Acidic/Ph balance more neutral, ideally 6.4 to 7.0.
Sadly most people are so busy and on the run from morning to night, we don’t take the time to plan, cook and sit down to a well-balanced meal.
We grab a sandwich & fries, salad on the run! (Commercial dressing are loaded with sugar – an acid causing substance).
This is wrong is so many ways, but its part of our lives.
What can we do? Change our focus!
We need veggies (Cancer not only lives, but thrives in Acidic Bodies) - supplementing with Juice Plus is one way to get these veggies into our bodies via the our diets.
Taking 20 to 30 minutes a week to plan the family meals rather than dealing with food when you and your family is starving does helps. Make sure that you have a salad with the fixings cut up and prepared in the fridge, ready to go.
When it comes to the dressings - read the labels. Remember that we have many different names for sugar and the most prominent ingredient is listed 1st.
Growing fresh organic leafy greens in a tower garden, is another way to have those salad fixings ready for dinner.
An “alkaline” body promotes health. Healthy people can run from morning to night.
