WW175: THE SHINING SCARF, HOUSE OF CARDS, and DIP N DANCE

Howdy Folks!
Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday!
Here are the 5 things that I think are wonderful this week - 5 things I want you to love as well!!!!

1.) Ok..this is A LOT…but there is something I REALLY like about it. Don't judge me! have thou seen "The Shining"? Do you remember the carpet in the hallway? No?? (I have a very visceral memory of this movie so it seems clear to me….) but for those of you who don't really remember, it looked like this:

Well now YOU can dress up your home…or your person……to match……
Thanks to MONDO you can…….
A nice rug for your from door…..
or perhaps a cardigan?



 Nothing says "Im gonna try to kill you with an axe" better than a cute cardi!

Go get one today!!! But please do not try to murder me! :-)

2.) THIS made me hungry! Thanks Pinterest……and From Brazil to You. org!!

Ingredients
4 ears of fresh corn, with both husk and threads removed
Olive oil to brush
A pinch of salt
A pinch of freshly ground black pepper
A pinch of nutmeg (optional)

For the Jalapeño-Lime Aioli:
1 jalapeño chile, stem removed, deseeded, and chopped
1-1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Salt to taste
A pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika (for smokiness)
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
Shredded Parmesan cheese (for a dairy-free version, skip the cheese)
Chopped fresh cilantro to garnish

Directions: Outdoors or on the Barbecue Grill: Preheat the barbecue grill to a medium high temperature (350º F/ 180º C). Meanwhile, in a large bowl of water, cover the cobs completely with cold water and let them soak for 20-30 minutes (this will provide extra moisture for the cobs while they are grilling). Shake off excess water from the cobs. Then, tear 4 rectangular sheets of aluminum foil. Place one cob in the center of each sheet of aluminum foil. Then, brush each cob with olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Roll the aluminum foil around each ear of corn and enclose by twisting the ends tightly, as illustrated below. Finally, place the wrapped ears of corn on the grill and cook for about 15 minutes, rotating with tongs periodically. Using tongs, remove cobs from the grill and open the foil with oven mitts. Press down on a few of the kernels; if liquid comes out, the corn is done. If you want the corn to have grill marks, subsequently place unwrapped cobs directly on the grill and let cook for about 2 minutes, rotating them occasionally. Serve the grilled corn either simply, spread with butter, or topped with the Aioli and Parmesan cheese.

YUUUUUMMMMMM!

3.) This is neat…..OGE creative group brings you a travelling light installation called ‘house of cards,’ that will travel around the globe! The installation is promising to be different in each city by displaying various sets of cards according to the local environment. Here it is in Jerusalem:




 For this site, designers Merav Eitan and Gaston Zahr have piled up 126 cards that create a 10 x 7 x 5 meter structure that is entirely modular and can be continued indefinitely.


Each individual card measures 90 cm x 150 cm and is built as a double-sided, ultra-slim light box, illuminated from inside with ultra-bright LED technology. The deck of cards for this version is of biblical figures that were illustrated by the famous painter and illustrator, jean david, in the 1970 for el al airlines.


Cool huh?

4.) This is cute……Dip N’ Dance is an independent short film directed by Hugo Cierzniak and produced at Delapost Paris. The story is about a forty-year old middle-class who loves his gadgets to toe the line. He will figure out, in a musical way, that things you own end up owning you.
