Of course, any cuisine, no matter how tasty, gets a little old after a while. I'm craving Thai food like nobody's business. Our poor empleada is also severely limited by our weird dietary restrictions (no meat for the kids and me, no gluten for John) so I ordered a couple of Spanish-language cookbooks to broaden our options. Sadly, we've only eaten out a few times here, but I hope to remedy that in the coming months. In the meantime, I'm super grateful not to have to cook every night!
And now for some pictures:
|Ceviche, shrimp soup, and fresh guacamole (a la John)|
|Ceviche here is served with onions, sweet potato, and the best corn in the world|
|The fruit options here are ridic. This is cherimoya. It tastes kind of like mango.|
|Rice, french fries, and lomo saltado (a beef dish that John seems to enjoy)|
|Empanadas and other deliciousness at a little store near our house|
|Fruit at the mercado|
|Everything from tofu to sweet potato chips. |
(Thanks to my friend Marisol for showing me how it works!)
|And last but not least, our go-to dessert when we're out of ice cream: |
whipped cream and dulce de leche. Trust me, it's amazing.
Tomorrow we're heading down the coast to Paracas for a few days of vacation. Hopefully we'll have even more delicious food experiences to share soon. I'm expecting many more parts to The Food Post over the next two years.
