Mango Daiquiri Weekend

Hey Cravers!

 

Today, July 10th, is Bahamian Independence Day! Happy Independence Bahamas!!! So Friday, I thought I’d start the weekend off relaxing and the perfect way to do that was with homemade Mango Daiquiris!

Every summer, which in the Bahamas is the season for mangos, my dad would make Mango Daiquiris for all of us to enjoy on the porch after work.

Since this weekend is a holiday weekend I took some time to relax. I took time to notice things in my yard; the beautiful bougainvillea, two hummingbirds, the sun setting, and the cool breeze. It was a wonderful way to wind down my Saturday.

Sunday I had mangos delivered to me, so another daiquiri day it was! It really is a great recipe. The rum isn’t too strong, which I like, but if you want more, then add more! That’s what’s good about recipes you have the basic ingredients, but you can make it yours! Figure out how much rum you like, if you like it a little icier, or if you like it thinner then add more pineapple juice. Make sure and write down your changes so you don’t forget when you get it perfect for you!

Today, Monday, more mangos were delivered and more daiquiris it is! Total day of relaxation!

Wally’s Restaurant & Boutique

Hey guys!

Wally’s has always been a favorite place of mine. When Wally owned the restaurant his daughters Maureen and Barbara managed it. My grandmother and I would go there for Saturday lunch dates. I always remember Barbara wrapping up my leftovers in tinfoil shaped like a swan, and no lunch was ever complete without a brownie fudge sundae!

To this day I love eating at Wally’s. When you live on a small island you often know everyone. However, the ladies at Wally’s always make you feel welcome no matter if you’re a tourist or a local. My husband and I are usually there once or twice a week so you’ll see a lot of food posts from there!

One of their top menu items is Cracked Conch, definitely a favorite of mine! I have heard there is another restaurant on the island, that I haven’t checked out yet, also known for their cracked conch, but that’s a different craventure.

 

You should definitely try their daily specials. Here’s one from last week:

Fried Snapper

 

One of my lunch favorites is their Ahi Tuna, it’s a grilled tuna steak with grilled veggies and a salad on the side. Oh, and you have to try Wally’s house dressing, the Mango Vinaigrette, is so delicious! They also serve something you wouldn’t expect with their tuna, Teriyaki sauce. I know, it’s different, but it works well with the fish and really makes the dish.

Seared Tuna

 

Don’t forget to try Wally’s drinks specials! Their house sangrias are both delicious, but my favorite drink for lunch is their strawberry margarita! And before you leave you should take a look inside the boutique. They always have cute dresses, swimsuit covers, and fun earrings for sale.

Firefly Sunset Resort

Hey Cravers!

I’d like to share with you one of my favorite places in Abaco, Firefly Sunset Resort. It’s an absolutely beautiful location on the Sea of Abaco on the island of Hope Town. Not only is the view breathtaking, but also the food and drinks are amazing.

 

Other than eat, there are many other activities to do at Firefly. They have two pools that you can relax in, a sandy area for more relaxing or kids to play, snorkeling, kayaking, and shopping in the boutique! If you’re really lucky you might be there on a day they have the slip ‘n slide out! I’m saying this from experience; everyone should try it! It’s not just for kids.

On my most recent visit I went with my dad, brother, sister, and her boyfriend for my brothers birthday lunch. My brother, Joshua, was all excited. He loooves Firefly’s burgers and that’s what he got; Firefly’s Southwestern Burger. What’s better than a 13 year old with a big smile on his birthday?!

Take a look at what we all had for lunch that day! 

 

The menu is incredible and I can’t wait to share more with you!

 

Nothing beats a day at Firefly!
