Home from Cuba.Sunday, November 13, 2011
Just got back from a week long trip to Varadero, Cuba. This is my 3rd time in Cuba and I absolutely love it there. Amazing people, culture and history. The beaches are phenomenal and the weather is perfect! The food in Cuba is quite bland, but the endless amount of seafood and rice and beans make up for the lack of spices used. I definitely got my fish intake for an entire month considering how much I ate, also the pina colada's were up there in high intake ;) One thing I thoroughly enjoyed was fresh lobster! Here in Canada I never buy lobster because it's bloody expensive, but in Cuba it is cheap and super fresh!! Unfortunately our resort didn't serve lobster but we went out to a few restaurants in the town and had some lovely lobster dinners.
Inspired by my trip, here is a fabulous lobster recipe:
