Just when we thought things were warming up around here, we had a visit from another cold front. Yesterday the skies became cloudy, the winds picked up, and before we knew it, we were getting snow! Big, white, fluffy snow flakes...reminding us of spring in Yellowstone.
Speaking of Yellowstone, our good friends, Rich and Ronda, pulled in the other day. We first worked together in Yellowstone in 2008 and struck up a friendship. We've worked together off and on since then, and I'm happy that we will all be working together this summer at Canyon Campground.
Last night, Rich and Ronda came over for dinner. While I was grocery shopping earlier in the week, I noticed Walmart had some nice looking plantains and mangoes. If you are familiar with plantains, you know they aren't ripe until they are almost completely black. Well, I found a couple with lots of beautiful black spots on them. I figured if I allowed them to ripen a few more days, they would be perfect. And they were!
So last night, I prepared one of Bill's favorite dinners: mojo pork tenderloin with mango salsa, black beans and rice, and fried plantains. The first time I cooked this meal we were living in the Florida Keys, and it always brings back great memories. And boy, was it good! By the time I thought to take pictures, every plate was cleaned. I love it when folks enjoy a dinner I prepare.
It was a fun evening...we put Sirius radio on the Margaritaville station, had a delicious Cuban dinner and enjoyed visiting with our friends....all while it was pouring snow outside.
