It’s been a while Blog World! I’ve returned from the Bahamas (whether I like it or not) and am trying to remigrate to reality. It’s no secret that I’m still stuck in vacation mode. I haven’t touched the oven lately and have been yearning to lounge in the sun with a delicious Bahama Mama drink in hand. For those that didn’t know, I was lucky enough to join my boyfriend’s family on their caterman voyage through the Exumas Islands. Endless blue water, boat to ourselves, private beaches, and lovely weather. What a rough life…

Did I mention there was a chef on board?  Like I said, real rough for the average foodie. We were borderline overfed and constantly shoved delicious desserts down our throats. It was amazing watching the chef prepare his many meals. We even had fresh sushi within 30 minutes of reeling in fish. I had the intial thought to write a blog post solely on his food choices but, of course, relaxation got in the way.

I learned how to scuba dive which was mind-blowingly awesome and terrifying all at the same time. Once I calmed my heart rate, I was one with the fish and explored the underwater world.

We made friends with the fish and got up and close with the largest lobsters I’ve ever seen.

By the way, these shells:

They are conch shells and quite popular among the Bahamian restaurants. From conch salad, to conch fritters, to conch chowder, you can taste it all!

Since I am still stuck in vacation mode. I will leave you with a yummy Bahama inspired drink recipe. What can I say? It’s been rough being back in the office. Let me pretend I’m still on vacation for a little bit longer!
