Once a month for Thursday’s Special, Paula has a list of five words to choose from, or you can, like me, do them all!
dormant – my garden in winter
salubrious – At E+O Restaurant (Randhurst Village, Mt. Prospect, Illinois), they make a salad that is not only unique, it is delicious! The ingredients are: brussels sprouts, kale, minced shrimp, red onions, red cabbage, carrots, chilis, and sweet chili vinaigrette dressing. It is one of the most popular items on their menu and very salubrious!
influential – The French painter Paul Gauguin was influenced by several different sources, especially the years he lived in Polynesia. Another French artist,Paul Cézanne, was influential to Gauguin in this painting entitled Woman in Front of a Still Life by Cézanne.
earmarked – This little Beanie Baby donkey was earmarked for customers who supported the Democrats in the 2012 presidential election. His name is “Lefty.”
fun-loving – My brother-in-law sings in a barbershop chorus called The Arlingtones. They are a very fun-loving group! In June, they put on a very funny show tracing humankind from present to past.
