Turntable Tuesday: Red For Tomato

OX HEART TOMATOES, better known as CUORE DI BUE in north Italy, is a “COMMON" big, soft, plump and super juicy tomato. I’m a big fan if you couldn’t tell!

This is not your typical supermarket tomato, which may be redder, less expensive but tasteless...  HARRY J. KLEE, from the University of Florida’s Institute of Plant Innovation, is trying to bridge the gap and make common supermarket tomatoes more tasty for the average consumer, yet easy and financially viable for the producer to get to market.  But until then, you might find something in the States like Goldmans’ Italian American tomato, which aren’t perfectly round and firm to use in this following recipe.

Our late blossoming summer has allowed us a wonderful fall "CASALINGA" ITALIAN TOMATO SOUP RECIPE and some TURNTABLE TUNES.

Turntable Tuesday :: A Curated Mix

My favorite songs (often times the more obscure ones), get randomly copied, pasted and collected in a folder on my desktop or scribbled down on whatever paper lying on my desk then hidden away inside notebooks...

8tracks and Soundcloud are music social networks that allow you navigate and share with other enthusiasts what’s already in their network or upload from your own music library. But if you don’t have the music in your library (like those obscure ones)... it means you gotta get them there! I discovered an easy way to convert favorite songs/videos to MP3 fromYoutube (for instance) to your music library.

I didn’t care for uploading any software and just wanted something efficient.
HERE IS A SITE I found easy and straightforward to transform your scribbled on pieces of paper into MP3’s, store them in your library and neatly into a curated collection of songs to summon up a mood at work, a dinner party or just to chill.

Turntable Tuesday :: 1%

99% INVISIBLE is, well lets say, very often gratifying and that’s reason enough to listen to anyone for any period of time. It’s name was inspired by Buckminster Fuller - American born architect, designer, futurist (the enchanting list goes on), who said Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable”.
