See you there.

Again it is a real good idea to make reservations, the number is on the poster above and you can just leave info on the answering machine. See you there.
  
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Wow! What an incredible night. First, the place was packed with all seats filled and 3 large parties including one with 15 people. And though we only had 11 singers, we had more than enough time to go around the list 3 times with WAYNE ABRAVANEL starting off with "Aquarius" and I sang "This Can't Be Love", followed by TERRY GALLAGHER and "Come In From The Rain", "You Are Not Alone", and "Can't Get You Out Of My Heart", GEORGE LEWIS sang "Because You're Mine", and "So In Love", LESLIE TINNARO did "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", "A Change In Me", and "The World Goes Round", and LORETTA SIANI with "Why Did I Choose You", "Love Walked In", and "Over The Rainbow", RAFE CORRELL sang "What Are You Doing New Years Eve", and "Blame It On My Youth", SHARON SILLS - there with husband RJ and her son, ADAM ELLIS and his soon to be wife HEATHER, sang "Be My Baby", "Hallelujah", "You Raise Me Up" and "At Last", she tells me Adam is a better singer than her and will sing for us when they're back in January. Then we had NONI LAMBERTSON doing "Bewitched, Bothered" and Bewildered", "Can't Help Loving That Man", and "Losing My Mind", and BARBARA FRANTZ with "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Love Potion #9, and "Santa Clause Is Back In Town" only she used Mrs. Clause. BETH FORMELOZA was there to sing "You Go To My Head", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", and "Till There Was You", and FERDIE FORMELOZA with "You Were Always On My Mind", "What Kind Of Fool Am I" and "Who Can I Turn To", TONY DISIENA sang "When I Fall In Love". We also had VICKI KNIGHT in the house and a young lady named KATIE who wanted to sing but said 'next time for sure'. We'll see.

Before I forget....
Saturday, Dec. 3rd we will have JOEL BAKER filling in.

Remember - there is NO COVER CHARGE!  But reservations are very highly recommended by calling 760-202-1111. Showtime is 7:30 with signers sign up starting at 6:30 PM.


PLEASE, won't you YELP US and tell your friends too that we have the best singers in town and we do it LIVE!  EVERY YELP HELPS

DOG CARTOON OF THE WEEK :
   
DORIS DAY  
CLIP OF THE WEEK:  
This is not a clip of Doris Day, however her singing
"Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" was used in one of
my favorite films, STRICTLY BALLROOM -
if you have never seen it, please do. I think it
could make a great stage Musical.

"AS SEEN ON THE TONY AWARDS"

One of the craziest productions numbers
in all of the Tony Awards.
2009 "Hair" from HAIR - THE MUSICAL

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
  
EASY INDIVIDUAL SALTED CARAMEL APPLE PIES  

INGREDIENTS:  

Apple Filling

1 1/2 cups peeled diced (1/4-inch) Granny Smith apples
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Batter

1/2 cup Original Bisquick mix
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 egg

Topping

1 can real whip cream topping
15 caramel candies melted in microwave
1 cup chopped toasted pecans
Coarse sea salt
 
DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 375F. Place paper baking cups in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups; spray with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix Apple Filling; set aside.

In another small bowl, stir together Batter ingredients with whisk or fork until blended. Spoon 1 level measuring tablespoon batter into each paper-lined muffin cup. Top with 2 measuring tablespoons apples. Spoon 1 level measuring tablespoon remaining batter over apples in each muffin cup.

Bake 15 minutes or until set in center and edges are golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; remove from muffin pan.

While cooling, melt caramels in microwave for 30 seconds on high, add 1/2 cup whipping cream and blend until smooth.

To serve, remove each pie from paper cup; place in small individual serving bowls. Top each pie with whipped cream, drizzle with caramel sauce and 1 teaspoon pecans; and a pinch of sea salt.
