I’ve been off the blog for a couple of weeks as I have been on vacation. And so has my computer! Together with my parents I’ve been on a cruise to Panama Canal! It has been an amazing vacation! Stopped at Aruba, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica and Jamaica!
As majority of people on a cruise I have enjoyed lots of good food! Every dinner we were presented with a menu with appetizers, soup/salad, pasta, main courses and desserts! And the best thing is one can order as one please! Meaning one can eat 5 appetizers and nothing else. Or as in my case at New Year’s Eve I had 3 main courses.
First out was two lobster tails! And then I had one more serving! That is right 4 lobster tails! To the lobsters we enjoyed a bottle Veuve Clicquot Brut! Yummy!
And then I finished with a Tenderloin Rossini! I love the combo beef tenderloin with foie gras and the red wine sauce! After all this I couldn’t get down a dessert!
Most days I enjoyed a regular appetizer such as beef carpaccio, scallop ceviche, Orange roughly ceviche, or a grilled vegetable antipasti.
Game pate with Champagne jelly
One day my mother had a game pate served with a Champagne jelly.
Crab and artichoke dip
And I had one of my favorites – crab and artichoke dip! It is a favorite also on shore!
Another hit for my mother was the grilled squid! We had calamari as a pre-appetizer many days so I guess they had to do something out of the squid body too! My mother really liked it and she said it was surprisingly tender.
Surf and Turf with shrimp
As I written before surf and turf is my favorite main course! But this time it wasn’t served with lobster but shrimp. But trust me I had so many lobsters during this trip so I was quite satisfied with this combo too!
But now I’m back in Toronto and time to cook myself!
Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
