Yesterday's post made me think of things that are totally new to me in Belize but now a daily part of my life. How did I live without this stuff? Simple answer...I didn't really cook (or clean for that matter). Manhattan was take away sushi, eating out most nights, delivered Italian food at 11pm and twice daily trips to Whole Foods Supermarket/Superstore/My favorite place on earth. So convenient. It has been a tough adjustment for me. Making a shopping list for more than one day's food is still out of my reach, but I am getting better.

I love certain fruits and vegetables when they are in season or available like cassava, mamey and mangoes. But here are my new everyday household necessities. I'm glad that a bit of cooking, time in the kitchen and Belize has forced me to find them. Though...Whole Foods, I miss you every day.

I love Zote! I've had my luggage searched many times simply because I have to bring a bar home. I guess it looks like plastique or something equally dangerous on the xray smile


Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

I have a bar of Zote and never realized how useful it was.
Thanks to you I googled it and learned a lot. Now I'm going to go use some by hand before putting clothes in machine. THANKS A LOT.
