island hopping

warmer weather is approaching...well it's pretty much here. not hot weather yet. just warm...perfect really. anyway, i'm getting into that summer mode. swimming, wearing tank tops and flip flops, and yearning for some tropical flava. so this week i go island with a tropical food theme.

How to cut a pineapple like a native.

Bamboo chicken. what a neat method!

An exibit all about edible tropical cacti, like pineapple and agave (yay tequila!).

Information about all kinds of edible tropical plants provided by the Missouri Botanical Gardens.

Lychees online. I've tried Lychee juice and lychee candy. I'd like to explore this fruit some more.

Big list 'o bananas!!

A neat (and pretty!) website about Thai food, with menu translations, pictures, links and more!

An article and some informational links about Cuban cuisine. I never thought of Cuba as a place I'd like to visit someday, but this article makes it sound fun!

How to crack a coconut.

Soak up the sun and the sweet juices of the tropics. summers comin' and there's nothin' better than some island eats and drinks.
