Every where we have eaten on this vacation to Fiji, be it at a resort or in Port Denarau, on islands or evening cruises, the food has been extremely delicious.. And the serving sizes plentiful.
Breakfast starts the day we’ll with a huge buffet at the resort. This even included champagne( pour your own from bottles in a large ice bucket, if that’s your desire. Eggs are made to yourlikimg as you wait, including fluffy omelets with an array of optional fillings. We find with a good breakfast and the addition of an ice cream for afternoon tea wended no more food until dinner.
Each morning those of you who know me well, know I can’t go past fresh cream…on desserts, cakes, in coffee…even straight from a spoon 🙂 There at the pancake bar each morning is a huge bowl of whipped cream!! Like everything it is relent shed often with fresh supplies. Of course I load it on my pancakes, my fruit and slip some into my coffee. Yesterday as I placed my pancake on my plate I looked to the bowl. It had just a ‘me’ size serving left.
The lady in front of me had the spoon in her hand. I knew I’d have to wait for the fresh bowl (and I was already drooling in anticipation of the cream). But no! She was that weird brand of person I don’t understand at all. She uttered that sentence all ‘good’ women do… “Oh, I should be GOOD and not eat cream!” Under normal circumstances I would break into my spiel that we shouldn’t accord guilt to the consumption of food we enjoy. At that point of brain wave however, where I was contemplating , “What if there is no other bowl of cream in the kitchen?” I heard myself tell her in no uncertain terms she definitely should stick to the good over ‘naughty’ and skip the cream!!
I then ladled that delicious fresh cream onto my pancake, drizzled the maple syrup in a decorate way…and devoured it in eyeshot of the dry pancake being consumed by that lady at a nearby table. I did notice another bowl of cream out when I returned to select a pastry 😜
Life isn’t a rehearsal!!
