There was too much food. WAY TOO MUCH FOOD.
EVERYTIME I turned around, it was time to go eat.
"Come on Lee, let's go eat."
*LadyLee scrunches up face*
The whole trip, I was whining, saying "It's too MUCH!!!!!"
There was food 24 hours a day. DANG. Breakfast in the morning, complete with a made to order omelete station. All the fruit in the world. Every dang cereal imaginable. Pizza and ice cream 24 hours a day. A stir fry station everyday. Hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos all the time.
Goodness Gracious alive.
My roomate, "Delta Hound", didn't like the buffet style stuff that was always available. She liked to go to the main dining room and be served!
They did have it all set up nice, though.
But I preferred to dine on the Lido deck. The main dining room felt too much like a restaurant with all the fancy napkins and fancy menus.
(White folk sure do like to lay out in the hot sun, don't they? LOL!!!)
Man, I got to the point where I would just stuff my bag with fruit and take it back to my room. i know people were looking at me like "Dang! She stealing free stuff!" Whatever. There were a couple of times when I had only fruit for breakfast or dinner.
That seafood was GOOD. Even the tequila sauces and cilantro sauces were off the chain. And this place, Club Cozumel Caribe, is supposedly $130/night for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo rental. The studios were cheaper, around 50 to 60 bucks a night.
(I would have my tail down there ALL the time if it wasn't for the $600-$800 plane ticket. )
(Don't think I didn't check all of that out. Don't let AirTrans mess around and have a 100 dollar special. An Oldgirl is GONE if I can hook that right there up. LOL!!!)
Back in New Orleans, one of my favorite places to eat is at a seafood place called Deanies, located in Bucktown near Lake Ponchartrain.
My good friend Gigi (who I will talk about in a future post) and I stopped through there.
I had the barbequed head-on shrimp and french bread.
That don't make no doggone sense AT ALL. That is enough food to feed a small tribe.
Cowgirl Cre made me email the place to ask if they could ship a platter overnight by Federal Express! LOL!!
(You should see the $49.95 full seafood platter. Way too much food. Way too much.)
Gigi nibbled on hers, and then boxed it up and took it home to the family!
Too much food... all the time.
Itis to the max!
Stay tuned for another food post next week.
