If you haven’t noticed I haven’t posted anything in a while. It’s because I am always jealous of Cat over at Things My Belly Likes. Not only does Cat have fabulous recipes, photos and a great writing style but she lives on an island in the Caribbean with those gorgeous turquoise waters, beautiful views, unbelievable sunsets, fresh seafood, wonderful rum, the list goes on and on and on. So, time for a vacation in St. Croix for a week to renew our wedding vows and eat, drink and be merry. No posting. No internet. No cell phone. Lots of fun in the sun and snorkeling. Rum, Rum and more Rum. Good food cooked by someone else. Nice people.

I think of it as a wonderful lunch otherwise reduce it’s size.  Give it a try. It is scrumptious. Continue reading

I call it Deconstructed Poke. Continue reading
