Our Saturday morning adventure was to go to a yard sale in the lot beside Changes in Latitudes. Island yard sales are fun for a few reasons – you never know what kind of treasures you will find and here you are always guaranteed to run into someone. I scored 2 books – How to Cook a Tapir by Joan Fry and a bar book for Cindy. We ran into Robbie and Bob a tacogirl reader who I have emailed back and forth with – he was was on his way back to Texas today after a lovely stay at Victoria house.
We stopped at Maria’s on the way home for fruit and veggies. Unfortunately she did not have any Jicama – maybe Tuesday she said. Jicama (HEE-kah-ma) is an edible root that resembles a turnip and can be eaten cooked or raw. Since living here I have gotten into eating it sliced – never tried cooking it yet. I found some interesting Jicama nutrition Facts – it is high in fiber- Vitamin C and hydrating water.
