Last November, our company opened up a new branch location in Castle Pines, which is just south of Denver. To celebrate the expansion we threw a little mid-day open house party complete with an impressive array of food and beverage.
On the buffet, I noticed an inviting bowl of salsa sitting sitting next to a big bowl of tortilla chips. Bright, fresh, colorful and chunky I raced for a chip to scoop up a bite. Just as I thought…fabulous. I sought out host, Sandra, to ask her the brand and where to purchase it. To my delight she replied that it was her own recipe and she had made it herself. And best of all, she shared the recipe with me.
Son Sean and DIL Stacey had us over for a beautiful dinner on Father’s Day. And I mean beautiful. Sean is a well-known artist whose creative flare is equally evident in the dishes he served up. Before we get to the food, why not take a look at his website seanbrownartist.com so I can get that shameless proud parent plug out of the way.
But wait, there’s one more piece of business I need to address before we talk about the food. And by the way, I’m pretty sure my fellow Rick Bayless groupie friend Heather over at Girlichef will throw almost as big a fit as I threw.
I walked in the door to see a shiny brand spanking new copy of the Rick Bayless Mexican Everyday cookbook laying on the coffee table. ”Oh good, we’re having Mexican” was my first thought. But then became suspicious and wondered why the cookbook wasn’t in the kitchen. Sure enough I opened it up to find THIS:
Slow Roasted Pork Achiote steaming hot out of the oven. Lime juice and achiote paste turn this everyday pork roast into a fiesta.
