Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Jalapeno Cheddar Bread and A Book Recommendation

So now that is has cooled off ~ 79 degrees at 2 pm!!!
All we want to do is bake and cook.
Last night we enjoyed Mexican pizza ~ salsa, white cheddar and jalapenos on focaccia bread ~ recipe for the bread courtesy of "Sweet Lorraine" who has "Adios" Jayne's recipe on her website.
This morning it was jalapeno cheddar bread.We haven't cut into that yet.
And Jim has taken over the galley this afternoon, creating Tommy's Chili, from Tommy's World Famous Hamburgers.
That should be interesting!

And a book for anyone who has ever spent some time in Mexico!
Anyone who has spent time in and around Puerto Vallarta!
Or anyone even considering moving to Mexico or building a house here.
"Gringos in Paradise" by Barry Golson I am only half way through it, but am loving every single word!
It's the story of Barry and his wife's move to Sayulita ~ a small town North of Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay ~ their adjustment to Mexico and the building of their house.
So far I have recognized one name from our PV days!
The book is well written, the couple is very likeable, they inter-act with the locals ~ all the good things about a book about Mexico even if there aren't any sailboats in it!

Maybe you guys should write a book about your travels. I know that I would read it.

Jim and Heather on Meerkat said...

Yes, we do have a crockpot! Would love your recipe.
Well, Jen this blog pretty much covers it at this point... and thanks for being one that would read it. You are my niece, you would have to read it. ;)

Jalepino bread. Yum. I loved it. It grew on me. And then I loved it. Smeared in butter. Sigh. I can't believe I lived on a boat and cooked delicious meals on it and enjoyed jalepino bread and tequila and sigh..
