There is such joy to share dinner with friends when the cooking is delish and the conversations real and relevant. Chef Mike prepared a fabulous Jamaican dinner tonight based on a meal he had at Chino Latino…
…flavorful grilled chicken, rice and red beans, roasted peppers, fresh pineapple and cilantro…LOTS of cilantro! yummm. Sous Chef Kathy whipped up a green salad with fennel, red onions, and fresh fruit in a peppery dressing. I shared a brownie tart with almond cream cheese frosting and fresh fruit.
We chatted about our kids…and jobs…our trips…and I walked away with a list of tips and books to check out! Love it when that happens!
notes to self:
•chat time is a great way to make high quality low cost international calls anytime, without needing Wi-Fi or 3G. Who knew?
•take photos of valuables in preparation for a disaster…house fire, flood, tornado…good to know!
•shared a few giggles and “ahas” with this Parody Of Our Modern Church Service...especially with our worship buddy Rommel!
•heard about authors and books to consider: Gabe Lyons…or 11: Indispensable Relationships You Can’t Be Without
good times…good friends.
