Farmer's Market, Cheese Scones, and U2 in Nashville

Yesterday started out with a successful trip to the Farmer's Market on the square...

Had some lovely bread in the middle...

Cheese Scones from In the Kitchen with the AWA
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried mustard
1 cup grated cheese, 2% or less fat
1 cup lowfat milk
6 tsp oil

1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and mustard.
2. Add cheese and milk to the flour mixture.
3. Pour 1/2 tsp of oil into each cup of a 12 count muffin tin or stone. Evenly divide batter between cups.
4. Bake at 500F for 10 minutes, until golden brown.
5. Yields 12, 2 point servings - serve hot

And ended with an amazing concert: U2 performing at Vanderbilt University...

Before U2 emerged, we were treated to some interesting numbers...

The band arrived and began to rock our faces off....

The show was similar enough to the Atlanta show two years ago to feel familiar, but there were some amazing additions - like the cool James Bondish CGI during "Mysterious Ways"...

And being outside made the lights that much more impressive...

It was completely amazing - including the humanitarian aspect Bono always brings to the show. (Click here for more.)

They saved my favorite song for the encore, with made me a happy girl. Since it was the end of the concert, it will also be the end of my post.
