We have been home from Belize for a little over a week now. We hit the ground running almost as soon as we got off the plane. I have been busy sharing the Belizian life with you, but all along, I was still busy cooking at home again too.
We came home on Saturday night. Sunday morning, I still did the church coffee cart, much to everyone’s surprise. I did not bake anything, but instead brought home some Belizian treats to share with everyone. Before going to the airport, we asked our cab driver to give us a little tour of Belize City and told him our plan. He took us to a small bakery that he knew. We brought back some cookies and some cinnamon bread. Again, it was a win/win. We helped a small local business and we shared something different and unique with the church.
We also prepared a big Super Bowl spread for our church just a couple of days ago for Super Bowl Sunday. I made some big fruit platters and Larry was in charge of making breakfast burritos for the congregation. I had to leave and set everything up while he stayed home and made the burritos, which he later brought with him. Larry did not want to make as many as I had asked him too, thinking, there would be a lot left, though reluctantly, he did. He was WRONG! They all disappeared immediately. He really needs to start listening to me more often. When it comes to food, I think I know what I am talking about. 🙂
I also taught cooking classes for all three of my boys, in two different sessions, and I have another session again today. Noah made some chicken Caccitore with garlic bread.
Asher and Micah decided they wanted to try some vegan cooking, and we made some vegan desserts. We did a vegan strawberry cake and some vegan chocolate pudding (I will provide the recipes later). I think they liked it based on their smiles. 🙂
And of course, we have had to eat as well. Again, I will post the recipes at a later time. And then yesterday, being Valentine’s Day, I made something special as well. I made a Tuscan steak with crab cakes. You have seen all these before, just maybe not all put together like this, so I will not give you the recipes again, since you should have them, especially if you have been following me for awhile. 🙂
And the finished product.
So just because I have not been posting my own cooking and dishes for this last week does not mean I have been out of the kitchen. As you can see, I still have been very busy, cooking up a storm. 🙂
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. Happy belated Valentine’s Day. Til next time.
