We just got back from Aruba (see you didn't even know I left did you?). The food there is just absolutely delicious. We ate at a Belgium place, Italian, and French. We really did absolutely nothing and it was wonderful. The Sous Chef wanted to take a surf lesson but "surf wasn't up." We were going to go to the natural pool but it was a four-hour tour and we didn't want to commit ourselves so we just went to the beach. I read 4 books - doesn't sound too impressive until I tell you that one was a 600 pager. The Sous Chef was also asked if he wanted his hair braided - he declined. But we did spend some time sampling the different cocktails...
First I had to have the obligatory Malibu and Coke
Not one Pina Coloada in the lot. The Sous Chef also had a Malibu Bay Breeze, Gin & Tonic, and some of the local and imported (Belgium) beers. I will definitely be trying to recreate the Fudge Brownie Martini. Although with the chocolate sauce, it is so rich, I don't know how many of them you can actually drink. Two was my limit in Aruba.
And we did have dinner with an ood
