Hi, friends and family. First off, CJ is getting teeth. She's been teething for well over a month now, and finally those little suckers are coming in on the bottom. I didn't think teething started until around 6 or 7 months, so I was not prepared at all for this. Luckily, we had the special teething toys CJ received as gifts from the Dugues! In particular, she loves chewing the face off a squeaky toy giraffe. (Thank you, Dugues!) So, that's happening.
In other non-baby news, we just discovered that one of the stores in our city has prosciutto. This is a big deal, people. Prosciutto is basically bacon, and bacon as we Americans know it really does not exist here. But we found well-refrigerated prosciutto and got it thin sliced - just like in the US of A! I cooked it just like bacon and got it nice and crispy.
THEN, I found avocados, which are not always available here. The avocados in the bin were purple and green. I chose a purple one, figuring it was more ripe than a green one. Who knows.
I opened it up, and it looks like it's a slightly different variety than avocados I am familiar with. The taste was more mild, but the texture was the same.
So, for lunch today we had prosciutto and avocado sandwiches. It was wonderful. Any day we can be a little gourmet in Praia is a good day. The end.
