OK- sorry, ladies, no photos of my husband shirtless today- though he was flattered by all the positive comments! I have photos of the island of St John instead...I had to deliver a jewelry order there today. My account here is a cute little boutique in Cruz Bay; the ferry stop and most of the shopping and restaurants are clustered here. The ride from St Thomas is about 20 minutes and costs $10 round trip...the last ferry from StJ to StT is 11 pm, and that is a fun one- packed with people who have been drinking on the beach all day and don't want to get stranded overnight! StJ is a lot smaller and a lot less populated than StT- about two thirds of the island are designated National Park so it's mostly wilderness. Very pretty beaches though, and always a nice day vacation from St Thomas.
The budget is going very well so far this week: Monday I made "Tofu Parmigiana"- this is one of my favorite recipes on this site. I had bought a few things on sale Sunday ($22.48) so for this I only spent $9.48. Tuesday was "Danish Potato Soup" with a few alterations.($4.89). I made it in the crockpot and added a chicken breast and some cheese butts and pureed everything but the chicken at the end. Had bought some crescent rolls to go with, but the package exploded in the fridge. Does anyone know if this means they were bad? We didn't eat them. Tonight is another slow cooker night, I am making a Curry with coconut and tofu...plus peas, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, lots of spices, and served over jasmine rice.($12.14) It is smelling delicious! If there are any leftovers we'll do a West Indian-style roti for lunch tomorrow- everything rolled into a tortilla.
Tomorrow night some friends visiting from the States are taking us to dinner at the Schnitzel House...a restaurant with the same knd of interesting vibe as at the Toad and Tart...but the menu is every kind of schnitzel you can imagine and not much else. It's really good if you like schnitzel! It's right on the water, so we will probably take the dinghy instead of the Jeep, which is always fun.
Have a great day everyone!
