Food! Food in Baja…

Everyone loves food!  I would consider ourselves as amature foodies, who also love to cook and creating new drinks.  In our tiny home on wheels we made sure there was enough room for a two burner stove top, sink, full spice rack and the Vitamix.  We also brought a dutch oven along, which is a new for the both of us.  Food in Baja has been great whether we made at home out of the van or gorging on street cart tacos.  Surrounded by water the fresh fish, seafood and shrimp have been plentiful.  So much ceviche! A regular stop for pastries is new to our diet; cherry turnovers, chocolate croissants, cinnamon rolls, cakes, donuts and obviously much more.

Breakfast usually consists of last nights dinner plus eggs and all wrapped in a tortilla.  I figured out a really easy pancake for us and now that it’s turning out consistent I’ll share: I mash one banana (the soft old brown ones are the best) until it is like baby food, add and  whip two eggs with the banana.  Next I throw in about 1/4c of flour (I use coconut flour), a tsp of vanilla ext and sprinkle some cinnamon in and mix it all together.  Chocolate chips are awesome in these  but it’s hard to find chocolate chips here in Mexico.  We have been topping our pancakes with peanut butter and agave maple syrup.
