Would you believe me if I told you that I haven’t cooked a thing (other than oatmeal) since June 28? Even though I’ve been able to post a few recipes I had in reserve, I’ve been away from the kitchen for almost a month!
I’ve been traveling “up north” and in Minneapolis playing with the Mill City Summer Opera. It’s so fun, I barely miss cooking. (Which for someone who cooks everyday, is saying a lot.)
So I thought I’d share some images with you of my summer opera adventures…
The REALLY good photos here come from the camera of Michael Yeshion who comes from New York each summer to work with the opera company. He very graciously allowed me to share some of his photos (otherwise you’d be getting lots of dog photos and views from my orchestra chair…both of which are still coming your way) so please visit his website and facebook page and show him a little blog loving.
As you can see in these photos, we play in a very unusual setting outdoors in the ruins of an old, historic flour mill on the banks of the Mississippi River.
The Mill City Museum seen here at street level (by my iPhone) is located in the old warehouse district in downtown Minneapolis. In its heyday, this was the world’s largest flour mill and it processed the flour for 1/3 of the world’s population.
