TBT: My First Concert!

And one of the first outdoor rock music festivals.

Fantasy Faire and Magic Music Fesitival at Devonshire Meadows

Fantasy Faire and Magic Music Fesitival – Devonshire Meadows, Northridge CA Penny Havard designed the festival’s concert poster titled ‘The Gates Of Eden’

“The Doors perform at Devonshire Downs (a.k.a. Devonshire Meadows) during the Fantasy Faire And Magic Music Festival in Northridge, CA. The band is double-booked on the 15th and travel to Anaheim in the afternoon to perform two more shows. Due to their double-booking, photographs show the group using another band’s equipment for this performance — Robby plays a ’63 Gibson SG Custom, Ray plays a Farfisa Compact Duo (along with a silver rather than gold Fender Rhodes Piano Bass), and John plays a Rogers drum kit. Consequently, these photos have led some fans to believe the band used this equipment on a regular basis when they did not.”

NOTE: I’m pretty sure it was the Iron Butterfly’s equipment.

Also performing Saturday: Second Coming, Kaleidoscope, The Whirling Dervish, Solid State, Iron Butterfly, The Grass Roots, The New Delhi River Band, Thorn Shields, The Groupies and The Factory

Cocoa Brownies 2.0 – with optional Alice B. Toklas substitution

Cocoa Brownies 2.0

Chocolate Brownies!

Chocolate Brownies!

Ingredients:
4 large eggs
7 ounces granulated sugar
6 ounces light brown sugar
5 3/4 ounces natural cocoa powder (not Dutch process)
2 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8 ounces unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions:
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees Farenheit.
Prepare an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable oil or non-stick spray. Trim a piece of parchment paper so that it fits just inside the baking dish with overhang on two sides and place it inside the pan.
Beat the eggs until fluffy and light yellow.
In a separate bowl, combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour and salt. Mix slowly and introduce the sugar mixture. Follow with the melted butter and vanilla. Continue mixing until nice and smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the brownies for 15 minutes, then remove them from the oven for 15 minutes.
Put them back in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Cool in the pan for 3 minutes, then lift the brownie out using the parchment paper as a sling. Cut the brownies into 4 large pieces and move to a rack to cool completely.

I Love You Alice B. Toklas with Peter Sellers

“I Love You Alice B. Toklas” with Peter Sellers

OPTIONAL SUBSTITUTION TO MAKE ALICE B. TOKLAS BROWNIES:

Cannabutter

Recipe makes 1 pound

Ingredients: 

1 pound of unsalted butter
1 ounce of cannabis – good to excellent grade is recommended

large saucepan

cheesecloth
spoon
Tupperware container with a lid
rubber band that will fit around the Tupperware

Instructions: 

• Pour 2 inches of water into the saucepan and boil.

• Once boiling, add the butter into the saucepan, being careful that the butter does not burn. Once melted, turn the heat to low.

• Stir the cannabis into the butter, and simmer on low heat. Let simmer for at least 3 hours. The longer the simmer, the higher the potency. Make sure to stir often.
Strap 2 sheets of cheesecloth overtop the Tupperware bowl using the rubber band.

• Slowly pour the cannabis butter through the cheesecloth and into the Tupperware.

• Remove the cheesecloth, and ring-out any extra butter stuck in the cloth into the Tupperware.

Put the lid on the Tupperware and put it in the fridge until the water and butter separate. Carefully pour out the water—the remaining block is cannabutter.

Cannabutter, ready for cooking.

What are your favorite memories of Hawaii? I took this sailboat picture during an evening dinner cruise out of Lahaina, Maui. When I see this picture I think about the blue Pacific ocean, tropical breezes, “umbrella drinks” and the beautiful sunsets.
