If we give ourselves the time to adapt.
When I was on the road, my schedule got me up about one or two in the afternoon.
I'd have two hours to fully awake, get something to eat and then get my guitars together for a two hour rehearsal. (these were for learning new songs.) Any singer will tell you to sing on a fairly empty stomach. This way, your diaphragm can move more easily.
Your diaphragm is a wall of muscle below your lungs that singers are trained to use to support the air flow to their voice.
After rehearsal we had a few hours to eat and let our food settle and then we would play five 40 minute on and 20 minute off sets from 9pm to 2am.
Our schedule would get us off stage after 2am, we were hungry and nothing is open after 2am.
This is where stage one of this adaptable story comes in. :-)
Our rooms usually had one of those tiny under counter fridges and a coffeemaker. That's it. That was our starting and ending point. Can you guess what's coming?
Ingredients: Milk, Condensed Soup, Cheese
Mix the milk and soup in the coffeemaker carafe and heat to max.
Put some cheese in the bottom of a coffee mug, pour heated soup over cheese to get it gooey and stringy. (like French onion soup.)
My favorites were tomato rice with Swiss and, split pea with ham and Swiss.
Now to the other part of my adaption. I used to start work at 9pm. Now I go to bed at 9pm. See how we adapt?
You can change
if you will allow yourself.
Enjoy Your Soup.
