Salsa Dancing, Too

“Spring is the time for plans and projects.” Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karinina

 I knew it would be a busy weekend…

… with party menu planning and laundry and meetings and dinners and shopping and looking for paint chips. We even had to decline the invitation from my friend Mary to go to the Salsa Under the Stars at The Headquarters, which sounded like such a fun downtown thing to do.

So, when I was grilling the wahoo on Friday night, I threw on a couple of extra ears of sweet corn, with thoughts of dinner on Saturday. Our friend Ann, who lives north of LA, was coming down to judge a flute competition and stopping by for dinner.

Mangos seem to be on special all over the place this week so I took one I’d been ripening and made a little salad. Could be a salsa, too — maybe with a little more lime juice, a little more jalapeños. For yesterday, I just wanted the jalapeño for depth of flavor, not spice.
