Monday Musings + Massaged Kale Salad (revisited)

1. Sorry to get all political on you so early on a Monday morning, but I am THRILLED that President Obama announced his viewpoint that gay marriage should be legal!

Just one more reason he will be getting my vote this fall =).



2. I was introduced to a new (to me) song on American Idol last week, and I can’t stop listening to both the original and contestant Phillip Phillip’s version of Volcano.




3. We spent Mother’s Day down in CT with John’s family, and this was the main attraction of our dinner:

No words are needed.



4. This week’s Back Burner theme is food that makes us happy, and my Massaged Kale Salad with Mango & Avocado is the perfect recipe!

If you missed it the first time, make sure you check it out this time around.

  1. Okay when Phil sang Volcano I just about died. I am not only a HUGE Dave Matthews fan but I am also a HUGE Damien Rice fan. Obviously, I want to marry this boy. :)

  2. I am SO glad you posted #1! I wanted to write about it too, but I realized my post would sound something like “Obama, you just made my life, and for all of you who disagree, never speak to me again!” So I’ll stick to just being happy that other people are writing it in a way that sounds much more educated :)

  3. Yes to #1 too & @Ari- I couldn’t agree more. I was so glad to see that most of my FB wall was covered in positive messages after the announcement. There were certainly some unhappy folks, but they couldn’t ruin my day!

  4. It was obviously his view all along but because of closed minded people, he had to keep it a secret. I’m glad it’s finally out! :)
    We spent Mother’s Day weekend in Maine and of course lobster was on the menu too!

  5. Not sure why my comment didn’t post the first time. Gay “marriage” should not be legal. A marriage is between a husband and a wife. There is no such thing as gay marriage. According to God’s original design a man and a woman unite to become one.

    1. I deleted your original comment because I found it to be offensive. You are – of course – free to your own opinion, but I don’t appreciate you pushing your own agenda on my personal blog.

      1. As you expressed your views to your blog readers, and by posting something controversial, you should expect to receive comments on a difference of opinion. I found your entry in support of gay marriage offensive as well. Since it is your blog you are free to delete comments.

  6. Big Yes to number 1. I am thrilled he came out in support of gay marriage.

    What I find offensive is the divorce rate of hetero marriages. 1 in 2 end in divorce. K, what do you say to that?

    I am a straight female who has been married nearly 24 years. I will not deny others (no matter if they are marrying the same gender or not) of the happiness my husband and I have had.

  7. I agree with Anne, good point. What I hate is when people try to push religion as the reason why people shouldn’t be allowed to do what they want. Even if gay marriage is somehow considered wrong, then why can’t people just let other people be? It’s not like by marrying each other, a same-sex couple will somehow harm your life.

  8. I don’t understand why others can’t accept that we all have our own opinions on every subject going. I must say gay marriage doesn’t effect me one way or the other and if a gay couple want to marry – let them get on with it – it’s nothing to do with me.

    About your Lobsters – your own comment sums it up. No words needed. Lovely. Except that word .. :)
