I love driving through Manchester early in the morning when there is always something amazing to see. This morning I saw the early sun shining directly on one of the big mountains. It glowed. My imagination got the better of me and it looked like a movie where the hero finally gets to his destination and the light shines on where the treasure is hidden. Ok…..a little dramatic…but you get the idea.
Mark has been in a Caribbean mood and has created two new specials. An appetizer called Salmarejo that is lump crab in a criollo sauce served with shredded, crispy plantain and an entrée of plantain crusted Maji Maji served with rice and beans and topped with marinated onion, red bell peppers & olives. They are simply delicious.
I love that the flavors of both are big enough that they can go with both white and red wines. I personally like our Le Jouet, Domaine des Enfants white from France or our Villadoria, Bricco Magno, Nebiolo red from Italy. Talk about a treasure.
Not to brag….but I know what I am having today.
Have a wonderful day!!
