We had a delivery of fresh red snapper today and we can’t wait to cook it for dinner. We bought more coals for the barbie yesterday but agreed we needed a fish grilling basket. We couldn’t find one here. We opted to venture to the hardware store to buy one only to enter into the lumber half of the giant establishment. The housewares store is across the street but getting across the street is never as easy for us as it is for residents. Alas, no grilling basket but Casa Bello will have it, we were told. Where is Casa Bello, we asked. Oh, just down the street on the right a bit, the man added. Ha Ha Ha. Do you have any idea how hard it is to be driving on the left while looking for a store you have no freaking idea where it is. I made the mistake (my first in life) of saying I’ve SEEN that store name. I’m sure it’s here. I said that THREE times turning into three different shopping centers and three times I WAS WRONG!!! That meant crossing rush hour traffic to get back into the left side of the road to continue the hunt. Finally I called uncle, declaring I was not having fun driving anymore. I wanted to go home. We did and then Googled the store to find out it is in a MALL, that we would never have found it driving around. Sheesh.
Just as we got home the skies opened and it’s been raining heavily for about a half hour so we’ll bake the snapper and eat indoors. And TOMORROW go to Casa Bello in the same shopping center as the GL grocery store. We’ll make it a twofer because the crackers we bought the other day for drink snacks tasted like dirt. Inedible. So bad we threw an almost new box away.
