I've heard people on tv talk about getting their mojo back so I thought that would make a catchy title for this post. I sure hope it doesn't mean something crude ~ I would be so embarrassed.
While I was in Florida getting my parents settled for the winter, I was lucky to be invited for dinner at my cousin's house. His wife is an excellent cook. Actually, they both are. I wish I had taken pictures of the food, but I didn't even take my camera to Florida.
My cousins are so good to Mom and Dad. My first cousin and his wife as well as their son (my first cousin once removed ~ It took me so long to understand how that worked, so now I love to use that information whenever I can slip it into a conversation.) and his family live very close to my parents (who live in The Villages). They check on them and invite them to dinner often. It's great to know there is family close by.
Anyway, it was a Cuban meal with squash (that looked like sweet potatoes to me), saffron rice with black beans, and this delicious pork roast. Ernie and Tina told me they injected the roast with a mojo marinade. Imagine my surprise when I saw this bottle of mojo at Big Lots. Now I just have to thaw the pork roast I have in the freezer to recreate that delicious taste. (I hope.)
Have you ever tried this?
