We don’t like frying bacon in the RV, it seems we can never get the smell out. We bought some bacon for collared greens and had a lot left over. We decided to try grilling it. Everything is better grilled and it seems like bacon is no exception.
It flared up quite a lot but we noticed that really didn’t hurt anything. The fat burned off and left us with very smokey tasting bacon. The fire was a bit too hot and some of the strips did curl up but most of them came out great. Next time I’d use fewer coals.
I’m having another BLT today and just heated the bacon in the microwave for a few seconds and its perfect. This might be our way to have bacon on the road.
So we don’t buy traditional tourist collectables when we travel, it’s a sticker for the laptop or something specific to the country. These are what we picked up for Costa Rica. We want to do more international cooking and all of the recipes are in metric, this will help bridge the gap for us.
I feel ignorant in that I only speak a very broken Spanish, so we’re also going to label everything in the kitchen in French and Spanish. It might be a tough year but I’m hoping to be able to speak reasonably when we go to Spain.
We’ve spent 6 days in Jaco Costa Rica and we’re just waiting on transportation transportation back to San Jose. We’ll be spending the last few days of the vacation in the Capitol unless we see an interesting tour.
The stay here in Jaco has been very relaxing. Other than the realization that this Beach town is just as expensive as most in the States and that the food is uniformly better prepared it’s been uneventful.
