Staff party and Cuban pork

Figures it would snow on the first of December! By the looks of it, the snow has just about melted away and it’s not even noon. A bit of a relief, as this will be my first winter driving.

I had planned to go out to do some Christmas shopping today but I woke up with my neck hurting if I turn my head in either direction. May postpone shopping until tomorrow. I need to make up a gift list and plan out what stores to go to.

Dinner is in the slow cooker: Cuban pork tortilla roll-ups. Basically it’s pork marinated in lime juice, grapefruit juice, fresh garlic, and spices, layered over onions. Once it’s cooked, I’ll shred it so that we can make wraps with lettuce and tomato. I’ve never made it before but it smells really good. If it turns out, might invite Dad over for dinner!

Sunday night we celebrated our staff party at Raxx. Dinner was roast beef with glazed carrots and potatoes or chicken souvlaki with rice, flatbread, and dipping sauce. Jordan had the beef; I had the chicken. Had fun taking pictures, hanging out with everybody, watching people play pool, etc. Most of us dressed up nicely. I wore my pink V-neck sweater and the gold and diamond heart necklace Jordan gave me right before the party, for our four-month wedding anniversary (which is actually today). 🙂
