Sister’s Lunch Date

Well, we made it through the hurricane. We, in Abaco, did not get a lot of wind and rain, but our southern Bahamian islands didn’t fair as well as we did. Please continue to pray for our southern islands as well as the other Caribbean islands.

 

It has been wayyyy too long since my last post. Since my last post one of my sisters moved to Kelowna, British Columbia; and my other sister went back to Collingwood, Ontario. Before they left we were able to go out for a wonderful sister lunch date at Wally’s.

You’ve read before that Wally’s is my favorite place to eat in Marsh Harbour. The service and food are equally great.

I was so bummed that they didn’t have the ingredients to make my favorite Strawberry Margarita, but Nana, the bartender, told me to try their Mango Margarita. Well, I can tell you it was as amazing as it sounds. I won’t lie to you, I was a little skeptical at first, but wow it was delicious!!

We had their Conch Fritters to start. The ratio of conch and dough is great. I have to say they’re not like my Mama’s conch fritters, but they’re good!

 

 

I have told you before that I would share their Cracked Conch with you, but that day I had their Conch Burger. Oh my goodness. Talk about conched out after…yep…sleep time! I was so full, but it was so delicious! Bekah and Carter both had the Fettuccine Alfredo and loved it.

 

Sooooo yum!!!

It was truly an amazing day with my favorite sisters. (They’re my only sisters so that’s why they’re my favorite.) I can’t wait for next summer when the three of us are reunited!

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.

Even Lily enjoyed the breeze!

 

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!
