Free shrimp cocktail

Share

As usual time is moving too fast this morning. I did manage to get a lot done before class and already have my suit on and ready to go – need to leave a few minutes early as I have to stop at my mailbox and get a  slip so I can go to post office get my package. Thanks for letting me know I had mail Dianne as promised I am getting it sooner than later ha ha.

Just got word from Tammy and definitly making a stop there later. She said today at Hummingbird – if you come in for lunch between 11:00 and noon or between 1:00 and 3:00.  You will receive a “fresh never frozen” shrimp cocktail for free – only “while supplies last”.  It is a 10.00 value and she wants everyone to try these delicious BAL shrimp cocktails – available daily as well as several restaurants and bars in town and up North.

Shared a chicken cesar salad and caught up with Keli at Hummingbird – had not seen her since she got back so was nice to chat. Her golf cart still awol in case anyone sees a black cart with I Do Belize Weddings on it

Afterward I went to go get my mail and almost choked at the customs price – $80 bzd to pick up some skincare stuff that I got accepted to product test. Apparently lotions are subject to higher duty.

Going to Lime for the Lasagna / pasta cook off tonight – Carole and Mario are entering so is Maureen.

Imagine sampling 13 delicious kinds of lasagna at one time – Garfield’s fantasy. Even though the cut the pieces fairly small they could have been halved again. By number six I was starting to feel on the full side but I managed to get through all 13 going for smaller peaces near the end so I could give a fair vote. I picked #1 which as it happens turned out to be the winning one belonging to Jock – Sunset Grill came in second with a delicious seafood lasagna and Mario and Carole took 3rd. Everyone did a fantastic job and the garlic bread was delicious.

    Ruthie – we will make sure between Pedro’s and Lime that there are more cook-offs when you return. Say hi to Chunky.

    I sure hope Lime doesn’t run out of cook-off before we get back!! This one was tough to miss out on.
