Valentimes Day with the Krugels

Since this was our first Valentimes, yes I know, it's spelled wrong :), as a married couple I decided to take some well deserved flex time off and cook dinner for the hubby. Since I've been working so many late nights lately and we've been watching our girlish figures I haven't made authentic Cuban food for him. time like the present.

The original plan was to have:

Frijoles Negros con Arroz Blanco (Black beans with white rice)

Pollo al Mojo de Ajo (Chicken in a garlicy citrus sauce)

Fried Bananas courtesy of my friends at Goya

Salad with mixed greens, goat cheese, balsamic dressing, and homemade croutons

And, if I could pull it off in time, Yucca

Unfortunately because neither the HEB or Kroger near our house had Yucca or any semblance of Goya products we ate, a delicious salad, followed by black beans and rice, and semi-decent chicken al mojo.

All in all, it was a great night and we event picked up some beautiful dormant roses for our yard. If all goes to plan we will be enjoying these beautiful babies in our backyard this summer or possibly fall.
Peace roses
Oregold roses

About Me

For those of you who know me, writing has always been one of my passions, with the exception of my Masters or any ridiculously long testament within the wide world of Academia. I've only had the pleasure of blogging a couple of times, mostly for a few classes in graduate school, but figured it was time to organize my numerous thoughts and musings with all of you out there in cyber land. I created this page because my mind is always running and often times my thoughts get lost in the hubub. Plus, my friends have always said that I'm a great storyteller, so I'd love to share them now with you. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this... Throughout the past 33 years of my life I've seen, heard, and experienced so many different things as well as had many adventures and dream of so many possibilities. But in short, what it comes down to is this..I'm just a little Jubana trying to make a difference in the world. Everyday I live my life to the fullest and have fun doing it. Life can't always be about work or how much money you make. There's so much more to life than that.
