Weekend Soundtrack: Apron Rock Mix

13th July 2012

Apron Rock Mix, Music to Cook By | Mighty Girl

This is what I listen to when I’m cooking, a nostalgic playlist. It reminds me of my grandpa who was a jazz musician, my roomies who loved country music and swing, and my mom who would sometimes dance me around the kitchen between stirs of the spaghetti sauce.

    “My Doorbell” by The White Stripes; “No Woman No Cry” by the Fugees; “Glad Tidings” by Van Morrison; “That was your Mother” by Paul Simon; “Get out the Map” by the Indigo Girls. And I’m making locally grown sweet corn from the farmer’s market, BLT’s on homemade sourdough bread, and beer battered onion rings, if that matters.

    I love that you have music to cook by. My mom used to do her housecleaning to Tchaikovsky and we’d dance around the living room with feather dusters.

    You might really enjoy Erin Mckeown’s album of standards, Sing You Sinners. My girls and I were dancing around to it this week while we were making ice cream and meringues (because it would be a shame to let the egg whites go to waste).

    And I have been, as always, listening to lots of Josh Ritter–this week it’s been his live albums. Such an amazing songwriter with a fantastic band.

    I have no particular music to share, just a fun (I think) experience that used to be part of my weekend cooking routine… “Family Dance Night” consisted of me and my two mutt dogs dancing in the kitchen while dinner was cooking. I would just dance, and Merlyn would jump and scamper around, and gigantic Arlo would take my hand in his mouth briefly and then let go and bury his head against my legs and walk around me in circles. Good times. They are gone (Arlo three years ago and Merlyn three weeks ago), and I miss them, but I am still a big fan of music and dancing while cooking. Thanks for this post. :)
