The Beatles nearly missed me. Sure, I like their music but as I wasn’t born until 1969, I missed the hysteria. As my parents had moved on to California music (Beach Boys), folk (Peter, Paul and Mary and the Kingston Trio) and later country (Willie and Waylon), I could have gone much of my childhood without listening to them. Luckily they were ever present on the radio.
I can recall one sunny December morning when I was in sixth-grade, I left my house for school and passed by a neighbor where the Beatles music was playing loudly. It seemed kinda strange to me because I hadn’t heard before I left that John Lennon had been shot the night before. When I came home from school, I once again passed by the house and more Beatles music was playing. This time it was “All You Need is Love”. As soon as it ended, it started up again. Everyone mourns in their own way.
I cannot but help to hear the song in my mind when I see the title of this recipe. And I was thinking that was all I needed!
A nice mixture of ingredients.
