Colombia, Maryland

No, that's not a typo. I am not referring to Columbia, MD, the "new town" brought to reality by visionary James Rouse. Instead, I am referring to the Colombian and Maryland influences that combined to make tonight's dinner.
This plate features Maryland grown corn, Maryland grown tomato and chicken breast in the Maryland favorite Old Bay "spicy chicken marinade". The Colombian influence came into play with the "Platano Maduros", or fried plantains which were prepared by my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. They were seasoned in vegetable oil, brown sugar and cilantro but I'm not sure about the rest. The platanos were full of fresh flavors.
Just in case you don't know, the McCormick Spice Company's Old Bay Seasoning is a Baltimore favorite. The side of the can contains several recipes depending on which size you buy. To date, Johnnycakes and I have tried the Fried Chicken (delicious!) and now the Spicy Chicken Marinade. Both have been full of flavor and definitely worth a second try.
While I can't take any credit for tonight's tasty dinner, I must say I enjoyed it and we both hope you give the Old Bay recipes and Platanos Maduros a try.

I am dying, how I remember those platanos at dinner up at Hunt road. And the Maryland sweet corn you can buy on the side of almost any back road.

You guys are killing me.

Give Mom-in-law and sis-in-law a big kiss and hug for me.

Not to mention the smell of new spices drifting south over Towson from Timonium.

Memories, memories, all we take with us, least I hope we do.

How lucky you are to have a Colombian in-law family that can teach you wonderful recipes from that cuisine!
