Dinner tonight

Dinner this evening was so delicious. Ham steak lightly pan fried on the grill pan, whipped yellow flesh potatoes (with butter and cream), steamed broccoli, and mango salsa, made thusly:

1 mango diced
3 spears of red papaya, diced
2 mini cucumbers, diced
1 tomato, diced
4 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice (lime would be better if I had it ...)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garam marsala

We opened a chilled bottle of Gray Monk Pinot Gris that we had bought at the winery in Vernon last month, and ended the meal with squares of dark chocolate.
