Pizza Night

A few nights ago the boys asked for a pizza so we decided to make our own at home.

Although you can get pizza in Jaco it’s not always consistent and you can expect to pay a lot of money for a small pizza….and anyway it is always best when homemade ūüôā dont you think?

I started with a great Pizza dough recipe by Bobby Flay although I added a little more olive oil to the recipe.

For the toppings I used two cheeses the first is a local Tico_DSC3639 cheese that is great for frying and baking and mixed it half and half with local Mozzarella cheese.

As for the rest of the toppings, every one gets to choose their own. For this pizza we¬†started with fresh tomatoes, onions, thinly sliced zucchini¬†and of course Garlic with a drizzle of Olive oil and a pinch of oregano….12 minutes later in a very hot oven, a glass of wine….Yummmm!

Tuna to Die For

TunaWe’ve been wanting to have fish all week so when we found fresh tuna at the market we just had to get it …

All it needed was a little salt and pepper and a quick sear in butter and yumm.

Of course a little Kale and Spinach salad served over garlic mash potatoes helped bring it all together.

We did save some Tuna for another day¬†for Tuna Tacos…can’t wait.

Catch of The Day

After a few hours of fishing on Lake Simcoe we moored the boat and made our way home excited to prepare our catch of the day.


Lake Perch, a very nice fish to fry. Served with fresh lemon juice, spiced rice and Garlic Lemon Coleslaw.




Fish is salted and ready to go.


A few minutes in the hot oil and we are ready to eat.


One awesome day and an awesome meal.
