I am here today cooking, eating, reading, and walking. I've found a fabulous wide trail along a creek to walk. The best thing is that it's only a few miles from my house. But more on that in another post!
I've been rediscovering the pleasure of cooking. Making several recipes through the week and keeping leftovers in the freezer for the next night. This is slow cooked jerk pork which I made in my crockpot by following THIS recipe from Skinnytaste.
The salsa on top has avocado, mango, lime, cilantro, and red onion. Complete deliciousness.
Earlier in the week I made chicken enchiladas in an adobo sauce. Very spicy. Very good. I highly recommend Skinny Taste. The site is extremely easy to navigate and there are a zillion recipes to try. Sort of like the Pioneer Woman minus the butter & sugar.
I came home from my walk and plopped down in a chair outside for a long read with my kindle and a cold glass of water. The winter storm we had earlier this week landed in Kansas. My sister is carrying a snow shovel in her car. That's a true story.
I have a new little photo link button thing in my sidebar called EAT & DRINK. It has a combination of things I've cooked and restaurants, cafes, dives I've been to at one time or another. This post is heading there in fact, as soon as I click publish.
I'm gradually getting more road maps & signs in place so you can find what you're looking for over here at DFLA. There's another section of the blog now called LA STORIES – up top in the navigation bar. Well those two…they were twisted up pretty good. But I instructed the categorization center of my brain to sort things out. I think I've pulled all the restaurants out of LA STORIES and vice versa. There are still a couple of overlaps. I'm less agitated. That's all that matters.
