I work with 33 unique and amazing individuals. Today I shall recognize one of my more colorful teammates. Her color is pink, her personality is sassy, her aura is diva, and her soul is as pure and kind as they come. She’s beautiful inside and out. And did I mention she’s married to the sweetest man, who happens to have a kick-butt smoker. Last week she brought me a sampling of his Smoked Paprika. As soon as I opened the bag and the sweet savory aroma rose into the air…I could envision one thing and one thing only…BBQ Potato Chips. My absolute favorite…BBQ Potato Chips…were just a mandolin away from happening.
Sometimes a recipe comes to you… Wow! What kind of intro is that?! Recipes come to me in my sleep, in line at the seafood counter, checkout counter, bookstore, kitchen table, pillow talk, water cooler….love to eat. I completely love talking about food. My co-workers are amazing inspiration. We eat together, share leftovers, and stories of recipe incarnations. Today I went to the grocery store at noon to pick up lunch for a few girls in the office. At the deli counter were prepared Cuban Sandwiches. I love a Cuban! And that’s how it happens. How can I deconstruct a Cuban sandwich and turn it in to “What’s for Dinner?”
