Song Harvest Mixes

Photo credit - WEEKENDwarrior
 
Today I am listening to mixes of my upcoming release, Song Harvest Volume One.

These are all songs I wrote in the Palmer church, rehearsed in the church, and recorded in the church. I am so happy with how Brodie Mohninger captured the songs. They sound like the church and I couldn't be happier.

I will be releasing this album next year. (Here's hoping February!!!)

In the meantime, I am singing some of these songs this week:

November 20 - Moose Jaw - Intellectually Challenged Art Class Musical Guest at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery
November 21 - Mortlach - Little Red Market Cafe
November 22 - Saskatoon - House Concert

Hey-Yo Harvest! Apple Carrot Soup



Hey-Yo Harvest! Carrot Apple Soup

I found an abundance of carrots in my fridge (thank you room mates) so I made this soup. I revised a recipe I found on tasteofhome.com.

Original version - http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/carrot-apple-soup

Ingredients
1 tablespoon canola oil
8 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
2 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning or sage
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 bay leaf

Directions
In a large saucepan, warm the oil. Add carrots, apples, and onion; cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add broth, seasoning, pepper and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender. Remove bay leaf. Cool soup for 5 minutes. Puree. Return to the saucepan; cover and cook over medium until heated through.

Also I launched a new website today - www.megannash.ca

I will still use this site as a blog. Thanks for checking it out.

Here is a little video I made to document my time at Mary's cabin.
I was working on this song throughout the tour and finished it at the cabin.
Late one night I recorded a demo of it. 
Thank you for taking the time to check out my trip.
