DEAR READERS: 

WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
 
It was a full house over at CABARET ON THE GREEN OPEN MIC on Saturday at AJ's ON THE GREEN with guest accompanist JOEL BAKER on the baby grand. And with 18 incredibly talented singers staying until the end to go through the list twice and to sing 2 songs beginning with EARL MITCHELL singing "This Is The Moment" & "It Had To Be You", then two out of towners with fabulous voices, JOHN SPINKS here from Boston who did "When I Fall In Love" and "Stars" from Les Miz, then LORI YEARY from Dallas with "Beseme Mucho" & with "Over The Rainbow" you could hear a pin drop, next was LINDSAY OUELLETTE with "You Don't Know Me" & a wonderful medley using "Time After Time" with "Just In Time", and JEAN SORF gave us "If Walked Into My Life Today" & another wonderful medley using "My Man" with "Just My Bill" with "Can't Help Loving That Man", then RAFE CORRELL decided to do the man's version of Jean's song "If She Walked Into My Life Today", & "It's Alright With Me", PAT McCANN met 3 friends there for dinner who got lost because they used GPS, so the lesson is get directions - and follow them... anyway Pat sang "I Only Have Eyes For You" & "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", then BETH FORMELOZA took us back to the 60's with "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me", & "All My Tomorrows Belong To You", followed by husband FERDIE FORMELOZA doing a beautiful job with "Softly", then "Who Can I Turn To", next it was NONI LAMBERTSON to the mic to sing "Losing My Mind", & "More Than You Know" which she dedicated to me, ah shucks, then we had BABRARA FRANTZ doing a big band song, "Moon Glow", and "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue", SHARON SILLS, who got several live video postings on Facebook that people in the audience took of her singing "Hallelujah", & "At Last", another audience favorite, VICKI KNIGHT did her song "Kratchma" which is very funny and gets the audience participating, & "Until It's Time For You To Go" to complete silence - which is a huge compliment, another legend in the desert ROSE MALLETT joined us to sing "So Nice To Come Home To", & "Summertime" which I also saw posted on Face Book by a few people, Rose brought us a new singer from Morongo Valley named JESSICA TAYLOR who used to sing with The Platters, must be a later version of the group because she is way too young, she sang "My Funny Valentine" & "Embraceable You" giving them both her own jazz styling, we also had ART from CLUB TRINIDAD fame come by to sing "For Once In My Life" and to say we without a doubt put on the best show in the Valley and make everyone feel welcome, wow that made my night, next we had JASON HULL with a couple of songs that I hope I guessed the right titles, "Now And Forever", & "I'll Always Be With You" - I know he said it was by CAROL KING anyway, and last up was LARRY DOOLEY who moved here recently from Chicago who did not know singers were supposed to sign up but we got him up for "I'm Glad I'm Not Young Anymore" and "Sunday Kind Of Love", hopefully by now everyone knows we use a strict sign up sheet policy so that everyone gets an opportunity to sing rather than a pick and choose system like some places may do. It's worked fine for the last 7 years here and for 7 years back in Los Angeles so why change it? Once again we want to say it was a real treat having JOEL BAKER on piano and that next Saturday RICHARD BERENT will join us from Los Angeles where he is in big demand so we are lucky he loves playing for us - and we love him too. So come out and see one of the reasons that AJ's ON THE GREEN was voted "BEST PLACE TO HEAR LIVE MUSIC" by THE DESERT SUN for 2016 and 2017, not to mention "BEST MARTINI" too! RESERVATIONS FOR DINNER ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - call 760-202-1111 and leave a message and do it as soon as you can because... "what good is sitting all alone in your room, come hear the music play".

GREAT NEWS:

AJ'S ON THE GREEN was just awarded BEST LIVE ENTERTAINMENT VENUE for 2017 the second year in a row by THE DESERT SUN.

And now it's time for the annual PALM SPRINGS LIFE MAGAZINE "BEST OF THE BEST" FOR 2017. This one is a little different because there are no choices to be made. Instead, you pick the city, then the category, then just type in the name and click VOTE. To make it easy for you I have included the direct link to vote for BEST OF THE BEST - CATHEDRAL CITY. There are a lot of categories that AJ's qualifies for so vote for them ALL! For some very odd reason there is not a LIVE ENTERTAINMENT category?? But you can vote for best burger, best cocktails, steakhouse, breakfast, etc.
 

I hope to see you there and remember reservations are highly recommended and there are different seating options with great food and fun all evening.   

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
 
AJ'S NOTE: There is a HUGE parking lot just past the front lot on your left. Remember to make reservations and see you next time.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
  

ITALIAN PORK CHOP SHEET PAN DINNER
This one lets you bake everything on one sheet pan

 
INGREDIENTS:  

5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
4 bone-in pork loin chops (1 1/2 lb)
2 russet potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1-inch pieces (1 lb)
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 lb green beans, trimmed
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves or dried basil

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 425F. Spray 18x13-inch rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray.

In large bowl, mix 4 tablespoons of the melted butter, the garlic, Italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Pour 2 tablespoons of the mixture into medium bowl; add pork chops, and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate. Add potatoes to remaining mixture in large bowl; toss. Pour potato mixture in pan. Roast 25 to 30 minutes, stirring once, until tender.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter, the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese; set aside.

Add pork to pan with potatoes. Top pork with bread crumb mixture; press to adhere. Add tomatoes and green beans to pan; sprinkle vegetables with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Roast 12 to 18 minutes or until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads at least 145F, and potatoes are browned and tender. Top with basil.

Add a tossed salad and you're ready for a dinner for four.  



TO LIVE BEYOND IT...

Don't let someone else's negativity become yours. When another person is rude, disrespectful or worse, don't react by sinking to their level yourself.

Reflecting negativity back at others does not teach them a lesson. A more influential choice is raising their awareness by serving as a positive example.

The best way to win is not by fighting. The best way to win is by being so strong and so positively purposeful, that a fight never starts in the first place.

Certainly you don't want to allow others to take advantage of you, but neither you want them to turn you against your own moral values and self-respect.

The shallow and petty negativity of others does not have to get to you, because you can choose, in an amiable and intelligent way, To Live Beyond It. :)
