South Beach.

South Beach took me by surprise.  The place feels a bit bi-polar. The first  thing I notice is the cars and the “boobs”. There are ladies rinding on the back of sports cars the way a princess would in a parade. I know I am in the United States but the flavor here is more like…

Shaved Ice @ Matsumotos

The last stop on my way out from The North Shore was Matsamotos Shave Ice. It seemed that almost everyone I met at the North Shore recommended I come here and when I found it on the Conde Nast Traveler I knew I had to try everything on the menu.

Two Sisters & Jitomate Salad.

Once upon a time the Natives planted Corn, Yellow Green Beans and Squash near each. Some still do. Its a perfect relationship, everyone benefits. Like family. Three Sisters, that’s the name the Natives gave them. This recipe does not have the squash that’s why I am calling it Two Sisters. As always I invite to experiment to but remember always making choices that serve your intention.
