Yikes, this is going to be a looooong recap. And that’s if I keep the details breif! We’ve had lots and lots of good food and fun the last couple days.
After my last post we drove out to Ashley’s to get chicken patties. They were beyond delicious, but my camera seems to have eaten the picture, whoops! Then my parents, Adam and I went out to The Point to explore a bit. We sat and watched the waves hit the rocks and it was wonderfully serene.
For dinner we went to Lotus, my favorite restaurant on St. Thomas. We took my parents along, even though it was our anniversary dinner!
First we stopped at Fungi’s for a beer,
and then we went to Lotus. We did lots and lots of sharing and it was a pretty fabulous meal. Uptown Wonton Soup chicken/cilantro/crispy shallots/white truffle oil.
We got some amazing rolls to share – 1. Joe’s Stoned Crab sea scallop/jicama/scallion/topped with sesame seeds and hot sesame oil.
2. Shaggy Dog tempura shrimp/scallion/avacado/topped with spicy kanikami crab mix/sweet amai yuzu drizzle.
3. Soho House smoked salmon/spicy blue crab/asian slaw/scallion cream cheese/entire roll tempura/spicy yum yum and amai yuza glaze.
Here are all of my servings -
I also had a few small bites of my parents Green Apple Pad Thai,
and a few bites of Adam’s Muy Thai Tofu.
For dessert we I got the Blond Brulee white choclate ginger mousse/crisp banana brulee.
I let everyone else take a small taste but mostly I dominated this, I was swooning!
When we got home I also had a small slice of my dad’s Lindt Sea Salt bar.
We got up beyond early Tuesday morning to join my aunt’s family over in St. John. Due to our lack of planning and 7:30 ferry time breakfast ended up being less than stellar -
No matter, it’s hard to be hungry when these guys are staring into your car!
My family picked us up and we drove to Ram’s Head Bay for a day at the beach and a hike. The hike was 1.6miles each way and absolutly amazing. These are only a tenth of my fabulous pictures.
The hike was very, very hilly and quite a workout. I drank water on the way and had a few big swigs of Adam’s soda and a cheese cracker when we got back.
Then I spent hours shell collecting.
Before we took a second shorter hike over to Drunk Bay. The beach is covered with rock sculptures people have made over the years.
Adam added a unicorn before we left.
I was burnt to a crisp at this point – in spite multiple applications of 70spf – so we headed to Skinny Legs for lunch.
My Painkiller was nasty so I ended up leaving most of it.
But my sandwich hit the spot. I got the grilled cheese with tomato and onion and asked them to add as many veggies as possible.
Devoured. Then we went back to their rental house for showers and naps. And more cheese crackers.
My parents came over in the evening and we got take out from “The Chicken Man.”
small piece of white meat,
fries with amazing bbq sauce.
My portions were pretty small and I definitly ended up getting nachoes once we got back to St. Thomas!
Finally, just so you know I am “skipping” the last two days of December. I have a long flying day tomorrow and don’t want to start my new year with an “old” recap.
