Well…  I thought about it for a minute, but deep-frying just wasn’t in the cards for tonight.  I wanted that steak with mango sauce!

The sauce was easy to make.  I took some frozen mango and tossed it in a pot with a bit of garlic, chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, and chopped tomato.    I cooked it down and added a splash of Meyer’s rum, a tablespoon of brown sugar, salt, pepper, and just a hint of spicy boonie pepper.  I hit it with the immersion blender and smoothed it out a bit.

Oven-roasted potatoes with garlic and paprika and broccoli and cauliflower in a light cheese sauce.

Hmmmmmmm… maybe I’ll deep-fry something for dessert!  Coconut fritters sound really good!
