I'll go into more detail about these 3 styles later but I mention them because drumming has been shown to relieve stress, lower overactive hormones, create a calmness in those who perform the activity. No matter which you do, you fall into a rhythm which helps to equally activate both sides of the brain and gives a state of balance to your mind. Besides, who doesn't enjoy just bangin' on something?
Feels great to just "get it out," right?
On another note, yesterday as Putney & I were walking, we saw a coyote run across the street & up a wash with a white or cream colored cat in its mouth. I could tell it was a cat by 2 things. 1) the color, 2) it had a long tail dangling down. Kind of solidified my thoughts about Oreo, I'm sad to say. I feel bad that another pet owner will be missing their pet too. I'm trying to think of it as "the circle of life" but it still hurts my heart.
Had another great dance class yesterday and a fab meal with my sis. I grilled a pork loin roast on the grill with a little spray of evoo and a sprinkle of Buck & Judy's Dang Rub #39,
and I made a balsamic reduction glaze which I drizzled on just about 15 min. before I turned off the grill and again while it set. (Recipe to follow). I made a bigger batch 'cuz Sis likes extra which we were able to drizzle more on as we ate our slices.
Glaze: 1-2 C balsamic vinegar
1-2 handfuls of brown sugar
1 lg minced clove garlic
In a skillet, I use cast iron, add all ingredients and heat to simmer slowly over over med. heat. Stir and turn heat down to low. Pay attention to this as it'll burn very easily and when that happens...YUCK! This'll take at least 20 min. to reduce just 'till it's of a thicker consistency.
For the roast, I used indirect heat on the grill which means the flames were around the meat, not directly under it. I cooked the 2-3# roast for about 1:15 hours or about 35-40 min/#. Let it rest for about 15 min. after grilling before you slice.
Enjoy the recipe.
