Having said that, Thank you for continuing to check out the blog and I love reading your comments
I was fortunate to visit Munich & Area in Germany. Barcelona, Ibiza, Cartagena, Malaga, & Cadiz in Spain. Bridgetown in Barbados and Toronto on the way home to Vancouver.
One of my guilty pleasures is to shop in bookstores and supermarkets when I am out of the country.
We made our way to the restaurant anyway. Once there we checked at the hostess desk and were advised they were indeed completely full. They did offer us a spot on the small deck that was serviced by the lounge. Perfect we thought.
The deck had 6 tables and looked out over the bay. We were sat just as the sun was setting. We couldn’t have planned it better.
Dessert was pretty great. We ended up ordering a baked Mauna Kea and a Coconut Creme Brulee.

This morning I had a message pop up on my browser screen indicating I had violated Oceanic Time Warners internet policy. It seems this company monitors your internet use. Even when paying for the privilege of using it.
I know what you are thinking….. yes I do..! But the site I was visiting was www.thefoodpornographer.com. After a 10 minute call that I had to pay for I was finally released and let to browse again.
Shame Time Warner!

At the end of the meal we ordered a Kona Coffee & Vanilla Ice Cream Cake and a Aztec Spiced Chocolate Mousse along with a pot of french press coffee.
Both were pretty good!

I eagerly snapped one up for the first coffee of the day! Sadly the recipe has changed. It appears that a basic cinnamon roll is cooked over a bed of macadamia nuts. While good…. they not as amazing as they were before.
I have worked out the old recipe and will publish it when I come home.

One of the great things when I was on the Silversea Cruise earlier this year was Tea Time.
Not only was there a spectacular view off the rear of the ship the pastries and sandwiches were excellent. The best part were the scones, clotted cream and jam. The scones, warm and tender, and the clotted cream thick and fresh just put the whole experience over the top.

We had a great meal.
Then it came time to decide on dessert. We were full but noticed Bacon Ice Cream in the menu. We hummed and hawed and decided that we were not going to have any dessert. When our server returned she asked us for our order. We explained that dessert was not in the cards for us that night but asked about the bacon ice cream.
Our server explained it was really great! We declined. Then our server said she would bring us a taste! WOW.
|Smoken Bones – Bacon Ice Cream|
The Ice Cream was really great. Vanilla Ice Cream coated with finely crumbled bacon and probably pork cracklings. WOW! A great blend of sweet & salty. Now to figure out when to have this at home.
