Oh So Sweet Mofongo

  

We are always going to the local food truck for some mofongo, and lately it has been a lot on our bellys and wallet; so we decided to dine in. This was my first time making mofongo and I was a little nervous. It takes for ever to hand mince 6 garlic gloves so I’d suggest getting some premade or if u have a blender or bullet, it’s great for time. My boyfriends only problem with the food truck is it is always dry. The cup of liquid in the mofongo was the perfect touch. Being that I used sweet plantains instead of green the texture was different. At first it threw me off, but after a few critics telling me how good it was i reconsidered. I guess we really are our worst critic. Go try some mofongo because it’s amazing !

Clear Water, Florida 

Clear Water,Florida 
So you all are learning about me that I am not a tech person. With each day that passes I am learning new things about the Internet and social media.I am learning how to look around WordPress as well. I would love nothing more then feed back to know that someone is reading this 🙂 This being said, I am sorry I disappear for a little. I have brought a story for you though ! 
Last weekend, my boyfriend and I drove out to Clear Water. I currently live in Orlando so that is about a two hour drive west. This is our second time being there and we love finding little places to eat. Cheap prices just happens to be a big bonus! There are two reasons I love ClearWater, Florida :
1. Seriously, super cheap. 
Your basic burger and fries are going to be over priced on the beach; Nothing has changed there. Although, Just a short walk off the shore and pizza is going for $1 a slice. 
2. It is a closer version of key west. 
Key west is about an 8 hour drive from orlando. Although we have done it, it sure is not easy while working six days a week. Clear water is two hours as I stated earlier. That makes it easy to go Saturday after work at 5pm and be back Monday by 9am. The water is just as clear as key west, and the gulf is the perfect sea. It has calm waves and warm water. 

  

Along our morning walk we came across a small restaurant called Kevin’s Kitchen. My fathers name was Kevin so by blood I was drawn in. The owner was very friendly and the service was great! Actually the girl working the counter was the same girl from the pizza shop during our last visit. While my boyfriend stuck with basic breakfast food; I of course ventured out and got a burger. The french fries are what won me. I am a fry addict! then again, who isn’t ?
  

Everything was great; My only critic would be that the cheese could have been melted. I am a critic for sure to, so that is pretty good 👌 The food was so good even the birds from outside knew about it. The entire time we were eating two birds were walking back and forth outside the front door. They were not shy to peak in either. So me, being the person I am, grabbed some lettuce and walked outside. Im sure Kevin would not like people feeding them; since that only leads them to comeback. They were just so cute ! So I had to do it 🙂 the bird walked right up to me and took the lettuce out of my hand. Let’s face it, people had to of done it before with how comfortable they were. 
  

Like aways, we had an amazing time during our trip and we look forward to going back soon. 🙂
If you live in clear water tell me other great things and restaurants that we can visit. And hey if you do not live in clear water, still tell me about your town. Who says we can’t go there? 🙂
