In Montego Bay, we sit in a thatched bar that is right on the Caribbean Sea with a view that appears to be never ending. I’ve had a shot called the Flaming Marley not too long ago – so I am what you’d refer to as nice. I get lost in thought as I stare into the horizon, Moments like this make me feel small, because it reminds me how vast the world can be. It’s no use looking at the menu, I already know what I’m ordering. Plantains! I patiently wait for Kari and J to look through the menu as I slowly sip on my rum punch.
Living in New England can really be marvelous but lately… Let’s just say a lot of us have been on alert, what with all this snow threatening to fall our way. Honestly, I have been thinking of moving to a much warmer climate, I just haven’t figured out where yet. Anyway, I figured that if I was going to be snowed in, at least I’d bake some chocolate chip cookies to console myself a bit.
New England is particularly scenic especially after it has snowed. But let’s be honest, I was not made for this weather and most often I comfort myself with baked goods and a good cup of tea, in this particular case, it was a nice rooibos vanilla blend and apple pie cupcakes.
