We just got back from a wonderful 10-day trip to Miami to visit the Alfonso family!  We spent a week down in the Keys and the rest of the time visiting with friends, family, the ducks, and eating yummy Cuban food!  Oh Cafe Cubano how I love you!  We had gotten back from Pennsylvania just four days before leaving for Miami so our cupboards were beyond bare when we got home today!  The whole family headed to Whole Foods and Kroger to do some major stocking but the thought of cooking was making us hot and tired!  We saw the ground lamb at Whole Foods and thought, yum!  Let’s fire up the grill!  A few sweet potatoes and we had dinner!
