We had a grand time in Cabo celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary!
Sorry for the delay in posts, we were too busy doing nothing. Almost nothing. We did go to breakfast every morning, and then lounge poolside, a little water aerobics, lunch poolside, a cadillac margarita or two (or three), and then to dinner, with a few spa treatments sprinkled in.
Sunshine ordered the banana french toast the first morning of our vacation at Siempre, the restaurant at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa. It was actually two slices of banana bread with a layer of bananas in between. This is how we will try to recreate it at home:
Banana French Toast
- Banana bread, sliced 1/2″ thick
- Cream cheese
- Bananas, sliced into thin rounds
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon dark rum, I like Meyers
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, it’s gotta be mexican for me
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- Maple syrup
Spread 2 slices of banana bread with a thin layer of cream cheese. Sandwich banana slices between the cream cheese side of two slices of banana bread. Mix eggs, milk, rum, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg together. Add banana bread sandwiches to the egg mixture, turning to coat. Remove excess egg mixture.
Preheat a large skillet over low heat, and add 1 tablespoon of butter at a time. Once butter has melted, add the banana french toast to the skillet and cook 2 minutes per side.
Remove from pan and garnish with additional banana slices, drizzle with maple syrup.
I ordered the chilaquiles almost every morning, when in Rome, right?
We shared this fruit platter, the papaya was my favorite, with a squeeze of lime.
Water aerobics class! Working up an appetite…
Cadillac margarita please! Charge it to once treinta cinco por favor.
Pueblo Bonito Pacifica es muy bonito.
