For the past two weekends, Dan and I have been knee deep in Spring cleaning. We attacked the house from top to bottom. Cleaned carpets, cleaned a now-vacant kid's room, put wallpaper up for a guest room. Cleaned the garage, the back deck. Took a couple loads of stuff to Goodwill. We worked from lists and happily checked items off as we went.
One evening we met some friends for dinner at Julia Blackbird's New Mexican Cafe. The menu is a culinary mixture of Native American, Spanish and Mexican cuisine. I feasted on the Rellenos Norteno -- two fire roasted Chimayo chiles stuffed with
goat cheese, and dusted with blue corn meal and flash
fried. It was to die for. And, although I'm not in the habit of taking pictures of my food, I had to take a photo of this heavenly, lusciously delicious coconut cake (with a strawberry rosette) that was dessert. . .
All the Spring cleaning was completed in time for me to put my feet up. . . .
It's amazing how much trouble having surgery on a big toe can be. Just ask Dan. He has been terrific, keeping me in ice, keeping me in coffee and keeping me supplied with just about everything else I need. I think I'll keep 'im:) I have a few weeks of crutching around to look forward to. Bleh. And then, I'm treating myself to a pedicure!
