Friday, February 4, 2011

Have a glorious weekend! Look forward to a new week-beginning!

And as my wife will surely say on Sunday, "Go team with the prettiest outfits!"


Need a show-stopper dip for the big game? Try my (well, I found it somewhere...) Bacon-Spinach-Queso!

1 thing of Velveeta
half a thing of cream cheese
10 pieces of crispy bacon
a handfull of chopped spinach leaves
1 can of (hot) RoTel

Cube up Velveeta and Cream cheese.
Crisp and crumble bacon.
Chop spinach leaves.
Open can of RoTel.
Put everything in a microwave safe bowl. Stir and nuke for 3 minutes. Stir and nuke for 2 minutes. Stir and check for consistency - keep nuking in one minute increments until it looks combined.
Best served with tortilla chips (but also is a great condiment for hamburgers and hot dogs!).

Sidewalk Prophets

Integrating worship with real life - that is one of the simple truths Sidewalk Prophets has learned to live by. Dave Frey and Ben McDonald founded the band in college, having no idea that in just a short time they would have a successful record and a loaded touring schedule. A demo tape landed them in a campus talent contest, which somehow connected them to Audio Adrenaline's Will McGinniss, landing them an opening gig for Audio Adrenaline which formed the template for their life now spent on the road over 150 days of the year.

Sounds like a fun life, right? Sure, if you want to leave family and friends to live on the road for half of each year, sleeping in the janitor’s closet at some venues, and making due with beans and cornbread, while trying to practice, write and record in between shows. Exhausting? Yes. Worth it? To Sidewalk Prophets, they'd have it no other way!

Dave and Ben rounded out their band with a bassist and drummer (Cal Joslin and Justin Nace) they found on Craigslist. So you never know who will respond to your ad! Although Ben and Dave had been writing together ever since their college days, they realize that sometimes three heads are better than two, so when the opportunity came to prep for their new album by co-writing with some of the top names in the industry they didn’t hesitate for a moment. Ed Cash, Jason Ingram, Ian Eskelin, and Sam Mizel all helped craft These Simple Truths into the hit maker it is.

Latest Album: These Simple Truths
