Her passions lie elsewhere, in her music. You’ll have to excuse a little proud mama moment, but Cole had an opportunity a few months ago to record two of the (many) songs she has written over the past year at Robert Lang Studios. This all came about because her vocal coach, Andrew Vait, was able to get her studio time & some studio musicians to sit in with her. What an amazing experience it was to watch her in the studio (the same studio that Death Cab for Cutie was recording in the night before). This week, we got the tracks back from the studio. Cole has posted them to her MySpace Music page, along with some of her other home-recorded work. She’d love it if you took a listen!
Anyway, back to the food. We made a delicious lentils salad (recipe below) which couldn’t be simpler, along with my family’s marinara sauce, Italian bread, chicken cacciatore, Nancy’s pasta, “Carli” cake and butter tarts. Simple and delicious food that was so fun to share with her.
