We took the opportunity this weekend to go skiing in Santa Fe. I was like a giddy child going up the mountain. We drove through areas with beautiful houses, snow filled trees, and views that went for miles. We went with a group of about 10 people. We have only ever skied in Colorado, so we didn’t know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. The trees were completely covered in icy snow due to snow fall the night before and -10 degree weather at the top. We were freezing, but we had an amazing day. I planned this recipe to make so we could eat it when we got home. We actually ended up going out for drinks when we got back so this was eaten today as leftover. It was very yummy, and the coleslaw was a refreshing add in. Happy Eating!
