Reminiscing on the 1950s!

Singing Sunday

Welcome to our 1950s week! Today we are starting off with a performance by Paul Hock of the song "Dream a Little Dream of Me".

 

Although this song came out in 1931, we still want to share this performance and felt that the song fits well into our 1950s week!

We hope you enjoyed today's video! 

Musing Monday

Welcome to Musing Monday!

 

Today Candice Leyland paints a beautiful watercolour painting of a sunflower field. 🌻 🎨

 

Sunflowers are timeless and have been popularized throughout the decades in many different ways. Today, if you're lucky, you may be able to find a vintage dress from the 1950s with sunflowers on them!

 

Watercolour has been around for a very long time, but became more popular in the 19th century. Even today, watercolour is still a popular art genre!

This recipe only needs two ingredients: milk and ice cream, all the toppings are not necessary but they definitely do add more flavour to the milkshake!

 

Let us know if you try this simple milkshake recipe!

Welcome to Wellness Wednesday!

 

Today The Culinary Studio, a beloved Belmont Village restaurant & cooking school, gives an instructional video on how to make a retro caesar salad!

 

Today you can find caesar salad dressing almost anywhere, but this retro recipe goes back to the origins of a caesar salad. This salad dressing recipe only requires a few extra minutes, and is definitely worth the extra time!

 

You can find the full recipe & ingredients here:

For Free For All Friday this week, we are bringing some more music content!

 

Kevin Coates sings "Kansas City", a song originally released in 1952 by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who had never been to Kansas City!

 

The song Kansas City didn't become a chart-topping hit until 1959, when it was recorded by Wilbert Harrison. Today, people still enjoy this hit from the 1950s!
