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!
