13-Febrero-2020 Jueves, Cozumel.
This is turning into a food blog
We went out to breakfast for a change. I got a traditional Yucatan breakfast. Scrambled eggs with chaya, fried plantain, chilliquias and black beans.
Chaya is a good source of protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron; and is also a rich source of antioxidants. Raw chaya leaves are toxic as they contain a glucoside that can release toxic cyanide. Cooking is essential prior to consumption to inactivate the toxic components. Cooking destroys also destroys stinging hairs. (I should have checked out wiki before I ordered it.)
We’ve mastered the style of Mexican living. Can’t make it past 2PM without a siesta.
Jack Hammer completed the tiled wall!
The crew currently working on the condo is a lively bunch. Music playing all the time and the crew singing along. Loudly and laughing. I find it entertaining. Dale, not so much. I will agree though that it was a bit disruptive during our mid-day siesta today.
We had supper this evening at la Kondesa. (.7 mile walk one way) Lovely restaurant with great ambiance.
When our table was cleared the cat left, watching for the next waiter to serve food.
All restaurants have one or more pets.
For people who eat out almost everyday we sure seem to go to the grocery store a lot. I can honestly say I haven’t cooked a meal since we came to Cozumel. Dale has done the cooking. (Thanks Dale)
I just like to look around.
Hechos Graciosos (Fun facts)
Mexican laws state that tequila can be produced only in the state of Jalisco and limited regions in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit and Tamaulipas. It is made from a single type of agave plant – the agave tequilana (blue agave).
Mezcal is a Mexican distilled spirit that is made from the agave plant. It does not have the restrictions tequila does.
El Centro. Three tequila shops within two blocks. The trendy new tequila flavor is peanut butter tequila. I’m not trying it.
