This week, I am in Dallas, Texas for the National RWA Conference. If you’d like real-time updates on the writing conference, please check out the Manuscript Mavens blog, where all four of us will be posting updates all week, throughout the day, to share our thoughts, impressions, and ah-ha moments with you.
Today’s Costa Rica photo theme is: GOOD EATS.
As we were driving to a national park, we passed a field where workers tossed pineapples into a truck for juicing. They were nice enough to give us a few for the road!
Note to self: Be more inventive in the kitchen! Here is a mashed potato volcano with sliced red peppers for lava. Cute, no?
My pal D asked me how it was that I gain weight when I go to Costa Rica. Here’s one answer: homemade tiramisu! (Other answers include mango cake, macadamia nut pie, caramel ice cream, chocolate fudge brownies, homemade flan, fresh cheesecake… detecting a pattern? *g)
By popular demand, here’s a photo of me at the heladerÃa featuring cerveza-flavored ice cream. (The sign I’m holding lists the flavors.) Beer ice cream tastes like… well, beer. And not milk-ish, either–more of a frozen beer snow cone effect. Not bad, not good, just… odd. But as they say, when in Rome… =)
