This weekend was one full of good food. I know I promised more pictures of my Thanksgiving feast, but I was so busy cooking an eight course dinner in my tiny kitchen that I didn't have time to take pictures. When the food was ready, I didn't have time for a photo shoot because I had six hungry guests. We feasted on turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, beer bread, grilled plantains, avocado and tomato salad, honey glazed carrots and pumpkin pie.
DISCLAIMER: I had no part whatsoever in preparing this meal. I merely stood by and watched. Maybe that's part of why I enjoyed it so much after cooking like crazy the day before.
The meal was very simple--red snapper and bread. We were hanging out on the beach in the afternoon and a little boat came ashore. The fisherman had a catch of fresh red snapper and offered to sell us each a meal for ~$6. He cut the fish and *mostly* cleaned out the stomach. Then he threw on some spices (garlic, butter, pepper, cilantro) and wrapped them up in tin foil. They cooked on a grill over a fire. The snapper was delicious. Most fish in the DR is fried, overly salty and generally not good. This was a welcome change and arrived just in time for some hungry beach goers!
