in which i stay at home, but my food travels: BBM4

andrea got the BBM4 package I sent her yesterday. brava, posta italiana! that’s nearly a record 3 days, cross the ocean and at least one continent and just before the olympics. let’s all congratulate andrea on her engagement, as well — tanti auguri.

this BBM had a music focus along with the usual food component, and we were asked to make a mix for the recipient. fortunately, i’ve been thinking about a food-themed mix for at least a couple of years. this was just the right impetus to make it happen:

insalata mista

1 jens lekman – julie
2 pavement – …and carrot rope
3 luna – cindy tastes of barbecue
4 blonde redhead – four damaged lemons
5 cocorosie – milk
6 wendy rene – bar-b-q
7 wilco – candy floss
8 the robot ate me – watermelon sugar
9 eggstone – taramasalata
10 death cab for cutie – champagne from a paper cup
11 emiliana torrini – tuna fish
12 gang of four – cheeseburger
13 mathieu boogaerts – rendez-vous dan mons sandwich
14 amadou & mariam – sngal fast-food
15 squeeze – black coffee in bed
16 brian wilson – vege-tables

[in case you’re wondering, as someone on art of the mix did, julie eats french fries by the dock of the bay, with lots of ketchup and mayonnaise.]

and because i don’t think i ever posted about this one, my january mix:
