Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,
Nice “spring” weather we are getting…
-I will not have an update for next week. Enjoy your Easter.
-This is the last week we are in session before we go on a two week break.
-A couple times a year, the Governor meets with small groups of legislators to see how things are going in the state. One of these meetings is Wednesday. I am looking forward to it.
-On Wednesday in Legislative Hall we are honoring Sandra Hall, Delaware State Teacher of the Year and resident of the 11th District.
-Wednesday evening is a chicken and dumplings dinner at the Townsend Fire Hall.
-Friday is Subs, Soups, and Salads for lunch at the Clayton Fire Hall.
UPDATE: My next round of Meet and Greets have been scheduled. Stop by if there is something on your mind and you would like to chat.

Having already made corned beef and cabbage earlier in the week, when St Patty’s Day came along, I needed something else to match that theme. I could have cooked something Irish. Instead, I made something green. Very green. And Caribbean-Mexican fusion. Which, of course, has nothing to do with St. Patty’s Day…. except being green.
-5 ripe avocados
-1 tbsp garlic powder
-1 tbsp allspice powder
-1 tbsp thyme
-2 chopped scotch bonnet peppers
-salt and pepper to taste
-3 chopped and prepped tomatillos
-1 small chopped onion
Combine all ingredients except 1 avocado in a food processor. Blend until all ingredients are well chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Slice the remaining avocado and stir it in. Remember to hold on to one or two of the pits. Keeping them in the guacamole helps keep it from getting brown.
