That End of the Weekend Feeling

It's been quite the busy week here on the Equator. Jose and I have been out listing properties, putting up signs and all associated with Real Estate this week. We even listed a hotel so if you are in the notion of living and working on the beach, we have the perfect right on the beach hotel for you here in Crucita. It's a calm fishing village by week and it transforms into party central on the weekends. We did our usual Wednesday Night party night and the theme this week was Pasta, Italian Food. If you want, you can head over to my recipes page to see my party contribution. We did a bit of barbeque this weekend and Emi had the opportunity to perfect her smores-making skills. There is nothing quite like making smores and believe it or not, none of our Ecuadorian friends and family have ever experienced a wiener roast or smore-making so we had to bring them in on this special kind of fun There is kind of an entire skill level to this. I consider my skill level to be very high and apparently, it's like riding a bicycle once you have your smore-making skill perfected well you can wait a few years and just pick right up where you left off. I explained to Emi that the perfect smore marshmallow is golden brown on the outside and liquid in the center. That is the perfect temperature that when sat upon your graham cracker and chocolate it all melts together perfectly. Our Ecuadorian family has gotten quite the thrill out of said smore making .

Ecuadorians , love barbeques and it's always the happening party at family get-togethers. One thing that is a bit different about an Ecuadorian Barbeque and a Kentucky or

Canadian barbeque is that when we do a barbeque there are all kinds of grilled goodies on the grill as well as lots of cold salads. Pasta Salads, Potato Salads, Cole Slaw, Corn on the Cob a Ecuadorian barbeque is just .... meat .... that's it! Maybe some grilled Madura the sweet plantains or Platano's Verde the Green Plantains. So, it was a bit of a shocker to go to a barbeque and be looking around for the salads and there were none. It's what we say around here ... is a cultural difference.
