Good Bye Telluride…

  • 07.12.12

As our vacation in Telluride is coming to an end, we have another great meal planned for all of us before having to say good bye.
The day was spent shopping, having the last lunch in town, enjoying one last time the perfect views from the gondola before time for dinner. 
We had this wonderful piece of pork roast that we cut in four equal pieces for faster and even cooking. We prepared couscous with parmesan and roasted garlic. A side dish of  roasted beets and caramelized carrots. Our ever so present salad was there as well.
The garlic and beets were placed in the oven as it was preheating.  We cut the top of the garlic head and placed a dot of oil over it. Beets were scrubbed and place individually into aluminum foil.
The couscous is from Near East.  We added the roasted garlic in the water and follow the packaging cooking directions.
Our last dinner in Telluride was wonderful.  The time spent with all our friends, unforgettable.  The children have grown closer to each other and  new friendships were born.
To all of my friends and new friends, thank you for such a great week in Telluride, see you next year, same time, same place…
