Thanks to my Cousin BJ, I was able to spend ten days in paradise on the Isle of Cochino Grande off of Mainland Honduras, south of Roata'n. His cook, Flauta, kept us fed with three meals a day and dessert on most evenings. Some how I lost weight. Above is a close up of her brownies.
Here is where I stayed for a much needed laid back vacation. Without internet, I was able to flesh out most of my western mystery, Slaughter at Sorrel Creek. The work, under my author name Mick Lang, should be completed and ready for publication on Amazon in August.
BJ can find a great cook, but he can't buy groceries. I had to make a second run for sausage, ham, cheese, and wheat bread. Best sausage available at the Walmart on mainland Honduras was Butterball Turkey Sausage. It worked for breakfast.
Flauta was cooking for six men so we did not bother her for special orders. Some days, the eggs were fried and other days scrambled. All days, the eggs were good. See how rich-looking the egg yolks are. And those rich orange yolks are from Walmart eggs.
Generally, I eat the fruit for dessert while my friends pile up on it with their main meal.
BJ bought tons of apples and we weren't eating them. So Flauta made apple pie for us on the last night. Since only three of us were left there, we had the leftovers for breakfast the next day. The apple slices were marinated in limes before the pie was baked. Talk about change the flavor.
In Honduras, bananas are sold fresh, not green. So after the first day, the bananas had to be used in baking. So we had banana bread instead. Life is good.
Bacon, eggs, fresh fruit. Great feast with friends. Thanks, Cousin BJ, for a great feed on an awesome vacation. In addition to toast, Flauta made her own flour tortillas.
