Coconut Pete and Lars playing “ponytails and cocktails”.

anonymous asked:

You had a dream that someone rescue you, you were on the edge of the cliff at the moment when you fall he held you and picked you up, when you look up to face him, he suddenly disappeared and the whole place changed! Who is he?

“That sounds like my other brother…” Scott’s heard stories of him before, from his father on camping trips and stuff. He’s pretty certain none of them are true but for a while,. anything creepy got blamed on weird Uncle Pete.

“They call him Coconut Pete.”

(This popped up in my Facebook feed from three years ago):

Breakfast was Costa Rican pancakes with syrup made from plantation-grown blackberries and coconut cream. Pete had these beautiful eggs from the chickens we visited after breakfast. Before this was a fruit plate.

Soon after, we were walking on the grounds and the guy working in Reception came to tell us the difference between manga and mango. We didn’t really get it. He picked two from a tree and said let’s go to the chef and have him cut up one of each for you. Before we knew it, we were back in the kitchen with the chef and he was telling us something about a “special salt” which we later realized was a “special sauce.” I thought he was just going to throw some mangoes on a plate—clearly I was wrong. Soon we were sitting on a rock ledge eating these beautiful mangoes and lemons along with both salt and special sauce.

Next we had beer and smoothies. My smoothie was strawberries and coconut cream.

Lunch followed soon after. The portions are usually not American-huge so we ordered two things. As you can see, all of a sudden, they went for American-huge. In the Midwest, we know a few things about pulled pork. Clearly, in Costa Rica, they also know a few things about pulled pork too. Our sandwich had pork and pickled something and homemade mayonnaise and homemade cheese. It was maybe the best sandwich I’ve ever had. As you can see, the nachos weren’t too shabby either. As we were eating, our waiter showed up with “tipico” drinks that the chef (our buddy from earlier) thought we should try. They were made of guava that had been boiled with rice and cinnamon and then blended into a smoothie. The manager of the resort came over to make sure we had liked our mangoes from earlier and our tipico drink that was just like his mom used to make.

Soon after that, it was free coffee and cookies time at the bar. The adorable girl at the bar clapped her hands when we came in and asked what we should have. She said Coffee Lupe (or something like that—really no idea). It was espresso and ice and coconut cream and cinnamon. It was great. Then she brought coconut cookies and carrot bread. It was still just mid afternoon.

The bed-turndown-girl showed up in early evening with our usual chocolate candy with ground up coffee inside.

Dinner was a tropical salad with heart of palm, mangoes, papaya and a blackberry dressing. Pete had seafood soup. All of this was preceded by hummus on homemade crackers and rolls with tomato paste and olive oil.

That was today. Home tomorrow. Good thing because a person can’t eat like this every day. I, who love dessert more than anything, even turned down dark chocolate picante pudding with cookies or ginger creme brûlée or lemon lime tart. I just couldn’t do it.
