Sometimes all it takes is leaving the house to be reminded of good-great-wonderful things. Some of my favorite things to eat I can't make at home. And that's a good thing, because it forces me to get out more.
I've always been a big fan of garapa, sugar-cane juice. I told Christian that I wanted to do a sugar free month, but then I remembered that I'm addicted to sugar-cane juice. There goes that ideas.
There's this guy (yes, the dude above) who makes an exceptional garapa. When he puts the sugar cane through the press he throws in a thick slice of ginger and half of a lime. Holy. Smokes. I can't even tell you how refreshing it is to drink this special ginger-y, Lime-y, sugar-cane juice, filled with ice, when we leave the beach.
Thank you Brazil for being so wonderful.
