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!

Panama Canal

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.

Lobster tails

Lobster tails

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!

Tenderloin Rossini

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!

Grilled vegetables

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!

Grilled Squid

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

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!
