So far I’ve talked about fun I’ve had in the DR, the not-so-fun sickness I had in the DR, and the work I’ve done in the DR, but I haven’t talked about one very important thing about the DR: the FOOD! The verdict: it’s been pretty good, but I’m ready to get back to the U.S. and eat “normal” again.
For breakfast we either have some sort of hot cereal comparable to Cream of Wheat or cold cereal with usually warm (gag) powdered milk and hard boiled eggs, rolls, and jam. For lunch and dinner there has been lots and lots of rice and beans, plantains in every shape and form, various, mystery meats random assortments of vegetables, cabbage salads, and plenty of fresh melon and pineapple. Like I said, it’s not bad but there’s not a lot of variety.
Oh and did you happen to catch what’s missing? Dessert! I guess it’s been good to tame down my raging sweet tooth, but I would do just about anything for one of these bars right now. As a Salted Nut Roll candy bar lover, these bars were right up my alley. They are chewy and salty, as the name suggests, and disappeared in minutes when I brought them to work a few weeks ago. Definitely a winner!
