Hey, so you've all been posting about what you're thankful for this year and what you're eating today. It's pretty cool to read all your posts while I putter about my mise en place.
I was thinking about what I listen to while I cook Thanksgiving, and I realize I have a pretty predictable pattern. Early in the morning, before the sun comes up, I listen to softly playing Sarah McLaughlin. Around 9 or 10am, when I need a little MORE, I swap out to gothy/poppy music - Siouxsie, Switchblade Symphony, Curve. Later in the day, when I start to feel in the weeds (I invariably feel like I am, whether I really am or not), I break out the industrial tunes - old Puppy, Rx, Meg Lee Chin, Pigface, Ministry. As guests are about to arrive, I downshift to some Tom Waits, and eventually swap out to some quiet old-school jazz. (This actually goes for any major dinner party where I'm cooking all day, really.)
What I'm wondering, though, is what you all listen to in the kitchen all day while you prepare for your meals - humor me and post what's on! (I just swapped out the Sarah for the Siouxsie, for the record.)Posted by shock at November 24, 2005 10:03 AM
