From high in his black, snowy lair on Mount Crumpit,
The Grinch, with old Max, came with bags down the summit.
In red hat, coat and shoes he came armed with a plot,
To take from the Bay every last happy thought.
Only here through next Thursday at the Golden Gate Theater,
The Grinch, Cindy Lou, and all Whoville await!
SHN‘s hot new holiday show ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas‘ should have been called how the ‘Grinch Stole My Heart’ – Stefan Karl’s acting was captivating and wickedly funny. Suited up from head-to-toe in green fuzz, the lead actor from the kids hit TV show, Lazy Town, was as brilliant as Robbie Rotten as he is Mr. Grinch. This green hairy Icelandic heart throb moves beyond the outwardly scary facade and quickly takes command of Whoville with his unholiday small heart antics. And for those of you that are scratching your heads to remember how this Dr. Seuss story ends, don’t despair, things take a turn for the best when Little Cindy Lou helps the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes. The performance joyfully concludes with the cast adorned in shades of pink, red and white (accented by a splash of Grinch green) during a musical feast with the Grinch serving roast beast! >Hint, spoiler alert, this is the moment I share my new favorite green food.<
Chestnut Sage Pesto Bruschetta
1 cup chestnuts
1 cup flat-leaf Italian parsley (tightly packed)
1/4 cup fresh sage leaves
1 clove garlic, smashed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pecorino Romano, finely grated
salt and pepper to taste
1 loaf crusty bread, sliced
In a food processor combine the nuts, parsley, sage and garlic until coarsely ground. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil down the feed tube until the mixture is emulsified. Then add the cheese, salt and pepper and pulse a few times until it reaches a loose paste consistency.
Serve on bread or toast.
Some fun out takes from our day…
