Were back from our cruise, but then I came down with a fever of 103, and a cough. Since I work in a hospital, prior to returning they made me get tested and turns out I only have a stinker flu – my temp is down to 100 at this point so on my way back to health.
So lets move on to fun things, such as Sushi Classes on our Sea Day. We wer on the Royal Caribbean Vision of the Seas and had a sea day, decided to try a Sushi making class, and honestly I learned a lot.
With out a doubt as soon as I can get over to our local super Asian grocery store, I will buy some ingredients and make a huge pot of rice try this class with the kids as home.
The guide at Barcardi tour said this was the place to eat, and we love local recommendations for dinner. Monfongo is plantains fried and crushed. And at this restaurant it is then shaped into a shallow bowl then filled with skirt steak, and topped with a light cream garlic sauce. There was so much flavor in the sauce and steak and the plantains were delicious, like a fried potato. This dish was very reasonably priced and although we only shared a meal – hope to go back and eat again. Reservations were required. Pictures are not great, because the lighting was all blue.
