I’m staring at a half-packed suitcase and a cat who just knows that something’s up.
Yes, something is up: we’re headed to Merida, Mexico in no less than 10 hours. My dad, who moved to Merida about 6 months ago to live the dream life, is anxiously awaiting our arrival!
How can I ditch town and leave you guys without an awesome dinner recipe to hold you over? I made these pork chops a couple weeks back, and I was so in love with them that the next morning, I emailed my mom, sister and best friend, telling them all to “try this recipe…or regret it for life.”
Ok, not really. You won’t regret it for life. I don’t even think I used the word “regret” in my email. But I would regret not sharing it with you!
Until next time….(which will hopefully be shortly after I return next Wednesday night!)
