We’re usually up for a good adventure, and tonight it was crocodile… for dinner.
We’ve had crocodile at a restaurant before and it was so-so. We were pleasantly surprised tonight, and actually enjoyed fixing and eating it at home! It kind of has the taste and texture of a pork chop. Two tips in case you ever find yourself cooking up some crocodile: cook it from frozen and use a fruity marinade, like a peach and apricot chutney.
This is one of the very few crocodile experiences we’d be happy to repeat!
I’ve always liked apple boxes, but here are a couple new favorites, ones I certainly never saw in the States!
It’s not every day we see a sign like this, but we did see one last week when we went shopping:
Thankfully the produce made it through customs, and we have apples this week! =)
I have a new obsession – drying mangoes.
My friend Mirjam taught me that you can dry sliced mangoes on a piece of cotton fabric, draped over a clothes drying rack and covered with mosquito netting, in the sun for 1-2 days… and you have wonderful dried mangoes.
And since it’s mango season here in the southern hemisphere and you can get local mangoes for about 3 cents apiece, my “dehydrator” has been in use all week. We’ve done quite a few mangoes, but also some apples and peaches.
My sticky assistant likes dried fruit, but especially favors the apples. She never turns down dried mango though, and now we’re looking forward to having mango all year long!
