Food! Don’t be sad anymore! Or, think about different things for a while.

This is what we have to do for every fruit or vegetable. And sometimes I try to not try very hard to remember and not forget to do this. But then Holly comes to my rescue and tells me that she already washed them and that I won’t die. So, good work, Holly.

So that’s why I haven’t died: Holly.

And this is food from La Mar, a restaurant by Gaston, who also started TANTA! (i.e. the best restaurant in the history of the world).  It’s his baller take on the traditional Peruvian dish “causa”, which is mashed yellow potatoes topped by awesome stuff. So, just come here and i’ll take you to Tanta or La Mar or even Hnos. Pasquale and you’ll laugh at me for be so freaking excited about the food and then you’ll taste it and then you’ll thank me at least 12 times and then you’ll continue this cycle with next person. It’s already happened from Susan to us and now me to you. Get ready, y’all…

This is cebiche, also from La Mar. Holly refuses to try it. She is silly. You wouldn’t be so silly, would you?

And! Fruit of the Day is coming. This guy is crazy in flavor-differencing. Because that is a word.

    Lovely, darling, simply lovely.

  2. Do you wash the veggies in bleach water or Milton water? or just soapy water or just water. We had to use bleach water or Milton water in Africa. Also boil our drinking water or put through a filter. Don’t even think of brushing your teeth with tap water.

    We wash the fruit with soap. We get our drinking water from giant water cooler bottles that the family buys from the store. Once upon a time I accidentally started to brush my teeth with the tap water. And maybe that’s why I got sick..
    It’s also hard for me to remember to keep my mouth closed in the shower.

    We wash them in bleach water, and then rinse them in water from the water jug we use for everything we drink.

    Right, I’ve done really well with remembering not to use the tap. It’s been good.

    My and the CDC.gov advice “Boil it, cook it, peel it, or forget it”

    –If you drink water, buy it bottled or bring it to a rolling boil for 1 minute before you drink it. Bottled carbonated water is safer than uncarbonated water.
    –Ask for drinks without ice unless the ice is made from bottled or boiled water. Avoid popsicles and flavored ices that may have been made with contaminated water.
    -Eat foods that have been thoroughly cooked and that are still hot and steaming.
    -Avoid raw vegetables and fruits that cannot be peeled. Vegetables like lettuce are easily contaminated and are very hard to wash well.
    –When you eat raw fruit or vegetables that can be peeled, peel them yourself. (Wash your hands with soap first.) Do not eat the peelings.
    –Avoid foods and beverages from street vendors. It is difficult for food to be kept clean on the street, and many travelers get sick from food bought from street vendors.
