    Default A Good Day for Lime

    Today is National Margarita Day, or some such silliness. I don't foresee any Margaritas here today, but a Lime Daquiri is not out of the question. When I say Daquiri I mean in the purest form, ice, 1 part lime juice, 2 parts rum, maybe a touch of sugar to knock the bite off the lime, nothing more, nothing less, no blender required, if you feel the need you can shake it all in an empty mayonaise jar (unless you got some fancy shaking cups) before serving.

    I did not wake up with this in mind, but a neighbor just brought by some limes he grows, I love them, they are some crazy Hybrid or mix. These really do make the perfect Margarita or Daquiri. They are the size of an orange and the flavor is amazing. I have seeds planted and hope they come true.

    Decided I better test that recipe, make sure it still worked. Still works.

    Looks like lotsa drinking goes on in Nica. If I were there I could fall back on some old habits.

    Hydration is always a concern in these climates.

    Time to get out the Mayonnaise Jar. The Limes are early this year, neighbor just brought me 2 dz. This is always a highlight of my year. I love Lime have 4 varieties producing on my place and more planted but these are the best Limes I have ever had anywhere. They are some freak hybrid, this is not something you ever see for sale.

    My life is so simple that the gift of limes has now changed the course of my day. I saw some decent Lettuce down the road a few days back, it would be real nice with a Lime, Culantro, Jalapeno vinaigrette, a side of Lime marinated grilled Wings. Looks like I will be going down the road today for provisions.

    Going to have a couple of these lime daquiris in solidarity with my Nica expat brothers later today. And toast the new year!


    Sometimes I'll just stand in front of the produce largess at Fry's here in Tucson, and gaze. Just the produce section is bigger than most La Colonias in NicaLand.
    After that I'll spend twenty minutes in the chocolate bar aisle, handling all the exotic flavors. Then, the meat section, and afterwards, the bakery.

    Good think I don't carry a backback, I'd be on some terrorist watch list.
    I don't buy much, who's to buy for here??, and if I need something tomorrow I just drive down and get it.

    Don't read something into the post that's not there, and if I lived in Managua, I could get 99% of what I wanted.
    I love my Nica life, and all the friends I'm making, it's just, when you need a 3/8" snap ring to fix your breadmaker . . . .it's a two day project to find one.
    I DID have a local hardware store show me how to fix it with a piece of wire.

    I am going to try a dry ice/cooler experiment this trip. Buy a good quality ice chest, Wrap the dry ice in multiple Fed Ex bubble wrap envelopes. I used to get 4 days frozen solid in Baja with a similar system.


    Pics: Yaritsa (not so little girl anymore we are putting through highschool); my housekeeper Ariana getting the ornaments ready to hang, Nuria the maid on the ladder, and Nuria's picture perfect kids.
    The little girl in the middle is the definition of "lista", I taught her how to split Oreos to lick the frosting. There is always someone to eat the rest of the cookie. Just over a year old, she's picked up quite a few English words. Absentee father (actually he shows up twice a month when Nuria gets paid), I call her Preciosa, and she calls me Papi, and holds her arms out for me to pick her up whenever she sees me. Her name is Nubia.

    Henry with a piece of his cake wrapped up; Ariana and three of her sisters. Asmada delivered her twins the day before Christmas, Belkiss at 13 is already four months pregnant; What's a Nica Party without dancing??; Ninoska took me aside to say, " don't worry about Alcides, he's gay",, and Ninoska of the North still looking for her own Gringo. Chicken from the farm, fed with my own corn and what they scavenge, provided the entre; none of Ariana's clique will drink anything but Smirnoff Manzana Verde's now, Laura Lowen, one of the few Gringa's in our neck of the woods got them started on it.


    I'm heading back on the 15th, if anyone needs a ride.

    I've looked on many women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times. Maybe if I had gotten laid, I wouldn't be such a nincompoop?

    You just can't help some people.



    Speaking of marinating, Ariana makes a marinade out of sour oranges, and the two varieties of limes we have in abundance and a little salsa Ingles. A drop or two of chili sauce.
    We've used it with both chicken and pork with good results. Best of all, it's mostly free.
