Experience Belize

I totally enjoyed a great “Belize Experience” today. I was working away at my desk and I heard someone calling out while riding down our road. I recognized the voice immediately – grabbed my pink basket some money and my camera and went to wait for the fruit and vegetable man to pass by on his way back down our street.

I totally enjoyed the experience of doing my fruit and vegetable grocery shopping right out front of our gate – bought half a watermelon 2 plantains and a jicima [sweet, root vegetable that looks like a turnip]. I was happy to learn that we have daily service sometime between 10:00am and 12:00pm. Cindy was pleased when I told her too and listed off all the things she would buy from veggie man on a regular basis.

    Hi Gail,

    I haven’t bought jicama in years, but it’s delish. Just peel, chop coarsely, and throw it in any salad. Similar to water chestnut. I’ve never had it cooked.

    PS is it easy to find molasses in San Pedro? Want to make some sweet bread with red river cereal while I am there, as a treat for my brother and prefer not to have to cart the molasses with me..
