    After such an overwhelming success with my Curry topic this month, I guess it’s time to move on.
    For the past little while I have been trying to generate a bit of traffic here; as you can see it hasn’t worked.




    I was told that some foodies do come and have a look from time to time.
    I had this brilliant idea and come to you for suggestions. I would love it if you would send me ideas, questions of what you would like to know, cook or talk about in the Caribbean Forum.
    I would be more that willing to research and post about whatever it is that you are interested in; for sure it will Not be Curry.




    I know one viewer who has just moved to Trinidad Wouldn’t it be much fun to discover that island with her? she is Bonnie G #2.
    Anyone else interested in sharing your little corner of heaven with us? Don’t be shy; let me know.
    Happy cooking!

    I love the idea and there is such a learning curve for me in this country - I'd love to share some of what I struggle with, enjoy and learn while living and enjoying life here. I can sure see why everyone was interested in the curry thread - there must be hundreds of differant types of curry available here but would you believe I had to go to a gourmet store and pay $12 for a small bottle of dried basil. Learning how to substitute while also how to cook and even recognize some of the local goods is going to be so much fun.

    This weekend went to the Rum Distillary just to find we had perfect timing as it was the yearly festival. Learned so much history about rum, pirates, politics and the country not to mention got some great recipes to try out. icon_wink.gif

    Welcome to our/your little corner. wave.gif
    So happy you have joined us Bonnie; please feel free to share your discoveries and show us some pictures. Hard to believe they charge so much for dried basil; you would think it would grow year round; I am still astounded about the all purpose flour you found at $9.00.
    I wish I could join you; we could have our own herb garden and make a fortune.

    Here's a few photos of my first few days here in Trinidad

    Shopping has taken a little planning and exploring to find what we need - they do have products from home that are easily recognizable - however; by the time they add the VAT tax the price is soooo expensive. By the end of the week (when I shop) the shelves can get pretty emptys.




    Lovely and fun roadside shops that are surprisingly cheap when you buy local grown (guess it's the imports to the island that are expensive)


    I have a lovely, modern kitchen here


    With a view from the balcony that reminds me constantly on why it's so good to be here


    And with the beaches and lovely and unusaul (to me) plant life - well, no need to say more:

    WOW Bonnie! Thank you so much!
    I have been trying to figure out how to make our Caibbean forum more real and interesting and here you are with your photos.
    There is so much ahead of you; what a learning experience.
    Please keep sharing.
    Happy we met with those cupcakes!

    thanks Rita, I love to be able to share what I've got, but must say it's all just my best guess as I'm so new here - I'm sure my info and knowlede will change greatly as I figure out more about the area.

    This Friday we are having friends over for a night of appys and drinks and figuring all the steps needed for that should be fun icon_rolleyes.gif

    Hee, Hee; we'll see how that goes once I figure out HOW to find everything I'll need. But regardless - as nice as the view is from the balcony and windows in this place people may not even notice the food.
