Breezin’, my perfect island breakfast

You ever have a food experience where you are totally in the moment; into your own personal zone? That happened to me last fall when I took a trip down to the British Virgin Islands and booked a suite on the newly finished resort on Scrub Island, a private island in the chain of the British Virgin Islands.

Very upscale resort, with all the comforts of home. Although I had more than a little cash to burn, I still wanted to prepare my own meals, since mainstream cooking at restaurants doesn't cut it for me anymore, due to the often poor ingredients, such as poor oils, GMO's, and so forth.

So, what I did was book a room with full kitchen, utensils, etc, and I ordered a weeks worth of gourmet food straight off the web, before I left home, from a place called Bobby's Market Place. Good call, Bobby's caters to the yachting crowd, and those blokes demand quality meats, fruits and produce. Bobby's promised to have my food waiting upon arrival.

 

Arriving to Scrub Island Marina in their private launch, the Bobby's Market delivery guy was waiting with my food right on time. Eggs, olive oil, real butter, oatmeal, mangoes, bananas, wild caught salmon, wine, Heineken Beers, I was good to go. The next morning, I was ready for cooking on that Viking (or was it Wolf?) stove, with all my food waiting an rearing to go in my Sub-Zero fridge.

After an incredible, perhaps 15 minute shower in the walk-in, glassed walled "rain shower", I go to work. Oatmeal, eggs scrambled in REAL butter, sliced mangoes, I brought my own coarse ground black pepper and Pink Himalayan Salt grinders, and Maca coffee powder with me from the states. Customs wasn't sure why bringing a salt grinder was necessary, but they let it go. That was one breakfast I'll never forget. Private terrace, breeze kicking, lovely view, very relaxing. Maca coffee right on point. I hit the restaurant a few times during my stay, but nothing compares to a "Home Cooked Meal".

My theme to healthy, delicious eating is "No Recipe Required", since I seldom want food prep and cooking to be a grand production unless it's a "let's cook together date". However if you really need a recipe for bloggers etiquette, I can give you what I wrote on my Facebook page about the picture below that I snapped of that heavenly breakfast.

Recipe for Tropical Omelette Ah-La Douggie
