When I say the words “All Inclusive” to the average joe that means two things… booze free flowing like the lazy river and food up the ying yang, but for me one word comes to mind, DANGER!!! For the most part I pretty much refuse to eat at any establishment that offers a buffet service, something about them just irks me. Not sure if it’s the endless amounts of “regulars” piling the food on their plate as if an Armageddon is upon us, or there’s that person that puts something on their plate and then two seconds later changes their my mind so they put it back for the next guy to enjoy, WHO DOES THAT!!!
I’ve even witnessed the occasional sniff first. There should be a cardinal rule at all buffets, and that rule is a sniff means you it’s yours. And what’s with the switching of the spoons??? It should be common sense that there is a spoon for every dish so why are you using the scallop potato spoon to dish yourself up the roasted vegetables??? Is it really that much work to put down one spoon and pick up another, I promise this action won’t cut into your over eating time. But at resorts the buffet is pretty hard to avoid, no matter how many protein bars you pack in your carry on at some point or another you have to walk the line. But this coming August I am throwing caution to the wind and me and best friend Trish are going to Cancun.
All you can eat buffet… here I come!!! So in preparation for my buffet bonanza and Mexican getaway… Mango Madness Salsa Ingredients: 2 alfonso mangoes(I find these are the tastiest) 1 red pepper ½ cucumber ½ bunch of cilantro ½ small red onion 1 lime salt and pepper to taste This salsa is like a party in your mouth and everyone is invited. Personally I like to pair my mango madness with a steak taco… A little grilled rib eye action, a lot of guacamole action and a sprinkle of feta goat cheese action. Peel and chop your mangoes, pepper, cucumber and red onion. Add in a BIG squeeze of your lime, and I like to use the whole thing unless you get one of those pretend limes, you know the ones I mean where you cut into it and it’s like the sahara dessert, so maybe buy a back up lime just in case. Chop up your cilantro as fine as humanly possible, then toss everything together in a large bowl and add some salt and pepper to taste. Mexican Party here you come. It’ll be like your right on the beach beside us, promise.
