Since the Bahamas, I’ve enjoyed photographing some of the most, uh, interesting food and drink we’ve encountered. We’ve eaten very much as we always had, needing to make only a few adjustments, as we’ve found certain staples aren’t always available, but discovering new culinary delights is a major advantage to traveling. I can only hope it gets to be even more fun as we move along.
A note on how our eating habits have changed. We have started accumulating new staples, which I may have only had occasionally back on land. We have a fridge/freezer, but space there is limited, so storage of veggies has to be timed just right so they don’t rot in our hot, humid environment. Grocery stores aren’t always easy to find, and most have limited selections of produce. “Must-haves” now include, cabbage, large carrots, more onions than we ever used to consume, potatoes (weird, but we really never ate them before), and other hardy veggies that will last a very long time. We also eat, pretty much, every part of the veggie. I can’t believe I ever tossed broccoli stumps! They are delicious in salads, or pan roasted.
Cooking differently has become a fun challenge. We prepare a lot of food in a pressure cooker, and have started learning how to bake on our outdoor grill.
I can promise you this, if you come to stay with us, you will not go hungry!
Goblins hand also called Buddhas hand. Very citrusy
Haha! Buddha sure has some ugly hands! 🙂
Have you had guanabana yet?
Hey Steve and Melissa are on Yarika and they are currently at St. Martin. Steve wants to know where y’all are. FYI Steve was a PICU nurse at Oschner. And what is your opinion of the Cape Dory 270?
Oh, we totally know them. I realized immediately when you mentioned the boat name. It’s funny how sailors become their boat name instead of their last name. They came to introduce themselves when they saw our boat is from NOLA and we were in the same anchorage. Small world!
Ha! I love it!!
