Fresh Produce Anyone???



Today after school we went to the produce market to pick up a few things. Boy did we score some delicious fresh produce. Here is a picture of all the yummy things we bought. We got a pinapple, 3 mangos, 2 avocados, a carrot, a head of lettuce, green onion, a bag of 5 heads of garlic , 2 onions, 2 potatos, a big tomato, cilantro, 12 bananas,2 limes, zuccinni, 2 yellow onions, whew, I think that’s it! And the grand total was…..$8.65 !! It’s all just so fresh and so tasty. Tomorrow we plan to go check out Price Mart for the first time. So tonight we will get our homework done , which translates to….No Tinto Vino tonight!! Darn!! Up till now we havent really done our normal cooking so its about time to try to make some of our staples. We have determined that the cooking tools which have been provided here in our “furnished” rental just won’t do. We need a few little things like a good saute pan, a caserol dish , a cookie sheet , a cheese grater and a whisk, that should just about do it. First up on our menu this week,(Thursday) will be Chicken Fajita’s! But tonight its macaroni and cheese and sausage. We should be able to make it down to David early and get our Price Mart membership established, spend some time shopping and then get back to Boquete with plenty of time to be to school on time. As soon as we ship our container that has all our belongings from California Scott will be well prepared for his regular cooking. We aren’t buying all the things we already have in our container, just a few essentials that we’re finding it difficult to carry on without. As you can see by these photos we will most certainly not be doing ‘without’ fresh produce. Lucky us! Cheers!

Life is Good! But it's time for a change, and more adventure! I'd like to share the whole experience of preparing then actually making a reality of expatriating, and moving to a new country. It's an exciting, and slightly scary move full of possibility . I'm looking forward to learning a new language and making new connections with the people who share our spirit of adventure. This blog is my way of continuing my connection with my friends and family in the States. Sooooo here it goes! :)

  1. The produce here is amazing! The quality and the prices are better than anything you’ll find in the US. A great place for kitchen gadgets and a lot of other stuff is Conway (upstairs). The El Rey across from Toyota, walk around that shopping center and you’ll find it on the back side behind El Rey, huge store with tons of stuff, good quality. Arrocha in the same shopping center has quite a bit on their upper floor too (and we have found it the best for office supplies)

    Ya know, looking at your list again, I’d go to Conway first. They will have all that there. Pricemart? Maybe, maybe not, especially the smaller things like cheese grater and whisk.
