I’m more of an ‘Eat to Live’ than a ‘Live to Eat’ type of gal. I appreciate a fancy meal out, but I’m just as happy with a parcel of fish and chips, or a nice toasted sandwich.
I don’t bake cookies, or make cupcakes, or cook Cordon Bleu meals, so it was slim pickings when I was scouring my pic archives for this week’s Sticky Fingers Gallery prompt ‘Food’.
Then I remembered this shot…
It was taken during our summer holiday to St Lucia. We’d joined a tour to a local Cocoa Plantation, where a traditional Caribbean lunch was put on for us.
We scoffed our faces with delicious fried fish, spicy chicken, plantain, and rice. I was worried that Lucia, then 21 months old, wouldn’t eat anything because it was so different to what she was used to.
But, as you can see from the pic, she got stuck right in. Just to clarify, her expression isn’t one of disgust, she’s contorting her face in order to shove more food in her gob!!
I felt strangely proud of her, and her international taste buds.
