|Some little birdies told me...|
Conveniently, the veggie guy was right there too. I had a little frisson of "Is this Friday?" when I was going by the open area where he usually sets up in - empty! But there he was, right in town, with his wonderful goods.
I had just written one of my daughters about a recipe using leeks, saying try this, I can't get leeks - but there they were, I did too have leeks! So with one more stop, dinner was taking shape in my mind.
Slow Cooked Chicken, Potatoes and Leeks
|Get some leeks, potatoes, ginger and garlic||Cut up the potatoes in bite size pieces, mince the ginger and garlic|
|Yes, that's a teabag...herbal orange...it works!|
|Cut away the tops and bottoms of the leeks, cut into slightly bigger than bite size pieces, they shrink!|
|Not as pretty, but crock pots like veg on the bottom|
I was hoping to only talk about gorgeous weather for awhile here, and hopefully that is just what we'll have, but there is some weather 'out there' and the Coast Guard has issued a warning that I think is important to pay attention to, not just for here, but for the VI's and the big island as well. You can read it here in its entirety; the gist of it is:
The U.S. Coast Guard is urging boaters, swimmers and surfers to expect and prepare for dangerous high-surf conditions expected Friday through Monday along the northern coasts of Puerto Rico, including the islands of Vieques and Culebra, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
So keep an eye on this system below us and pay attention to the water...fun is good, good fun is better.
