Hot goat cheese salad.  I had to make my own since I did not see it on any menus.  One of the reasons that we rent houses instead of hotel rooms, to have a kitchen and be able to use local, in season produce when it is at it’s best.

The friendly fruit and veg merchant and his trays of mixed tomatoes.

One of the best things we had to eat the whole week, French Fries made at home by Maria.  The potatoes (from friendly fruit and veg man above) were very fresh.  Maria, cut and soaked them and then fried them to perfection.  Really good.

Grilled chicken salad with yellow tomatoes.  It was so hot.  We were eating a lot of salads.

And there were so many tomatoes to choose from….

The other really good thing that we ate was from one of the butcher shops.  This was an eggplant gratin that was nothing but sliced eggplant, tomato sauce and some cheese.  Really, really good.  They had some other dishes that I would have liked to try but did not get around to it.  Our meal at the fancy restaurant was not good and was VERY expensive.  The meals at Acapulco were also a bit pricy.  I think when we go back, rather than going out I would be happy to buy a side dish or two from this place and grill a piece of meat, some salad and bread.  It would mean washing dishes but the food would be tasty.

Food is always enjoyable when you have someone fun to share it with.
