Culinary, mostly


Miami is about food for us because we’re staying with Conor’s cousin Fernando who is an excellent cook and loves to eat. In the last few days we’ve had fresh shrimp cooked in a tomato onion broth, soft-shell crab (thanks to Luis and Lacey who brought them fresh from northern Florida), rabbit paella and a barbecue. There’s also an overabundance of fresh avocados at the house because the avocado tree in the backyard has gone into production overdrive. Not just in terms of numbers but also in size:

Puzzle piece for size comparison...

As you might imagine, they are the best avocados ever – sweet, soft and creamy.

Idoia has also been making lots of sweet stuff like tres leches, banana cake and birthday coffee cake for Luken (not a special Sugar Lab creation unfortunately).

Today we’re off to Sarasota to finally get our PADI Open Water dive certificate. It’ll be great fun but we’re sure gonna miss the cooking…

That's how you peel a tomato, okay?!
