Greenleaves shining & glowing
I ended up with 7 guests plus my housemate and me. The fish sancocho was an experiment that turned out great! I got M and M involved in making the mojitos – which were SO yummy and refreshing. The jícama salad and the flan . . . oh the flan. Because it turned out the shop had only plain flan, I invented a little coconut-cinnamon sauce to spread on it. YUM!
Housemate was her usual kind, helpful self, rescuing me in a moment of panic when I hadn’t even showered yet and guests might start arriving in half an hour and there were still several things to do. (Fortunately, the guests were all a bit late.)
More important than the food: the conversation was rich and satisfying. We are determined together to make our Colombia trip and interlocking creative projects happen! Have to put some feelers out about funding. It will all come together, I have no doubt.
