Eating Down Memory Lane

January 11, 2010 at 7:33 PM 7 comments

Dang, I’ve been slacking. No good excuses…sorry. Today I worked my last catering event, a Rotary lunch. I was up early and had a bowl of cereal (raisin bran, granola, 1/2 banana & cow milk). My caterer ran out of food – yikes! – so that meant no munchies for the staff today. By the time I got home and fixed myself lunch it was almost 3:00pm.

I had a local sesame wheat bun (toasted) half with chive chevre, cuc & red onion, the other half with almond butter and apricot jam (of which I only ate half). I also had half of a monstrous satsuma.


Tonight we ate down memory lane, as I made “Isla Dinner”. In April 2004, my family traveled to Isla Mujeres, Mexico for Spring Break. One of our fondest (food) memories is eating fresh chicken tacos by our hotel pool. We would go to town and buy the ingredients at each specialty shop – first the tortilleria for a kilo of warm corn tortillas, then next it was to the rotisseria for a roasted chicken. We would make a bowl of mango avocado salsa in our condo and then sit outside and dine al fresco, assembling our simple vacation meal by the aqua water.

Avocado Mango Salsa

– avocado, mango, red onion, jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro & salt –

So fresh & healthy!

Off to get in my trash TV fix. I’m a minimal TV watcher (since we don’t have cable at home), but I do have a few favorite reality shows…and of course I am a Food Network fanatic. The Bachelor is on in T-30…

Hope your week is off on the right foot,

~ Hillary
