Buenos dias Tulum! Que tal su fin de semana? El mio fue increible. Viernes de cine en Playa del Carmen con amigos, Sábado relax con mi familia! #neftlix y Domingo en la playa por la mañana, tomando el sol y disfrutando mi mar turquesa y por la tarde celebrando el cumpleaños de una amiga en el Hostel The Weary Traveler. Dj Rob Jeffrey nos hizo bailar toda la noche y las caipirinhas de Abe nos mantuvieron muy feliz!!! 13015176_1191028294243539_7720364744997591374_n20161002_193700

Breakfast at Cabanas La Luna and Fishing in Tankah Bay

Well, I have to say that I LOVE  having breakfast on Tulum beach  getting kissed by the early morning sun rays. As much as I love dining at all of the restaurants in Tulum, this is one of my favorites.  Even just the ride down to the beach is so much more fun.

 

I finished up my meeting, official business for the my phone 161day — CHECK!  Now it was time to order breakfast, enjoy the beach and see what the day would bring.  One of my favorite breakfast dishes in Tulum is Huevos Rancheros.  Eggs over easy on a tortilla slathered in beans and a delicious salsa.  At Cabanas La Luna, Huevos Rancheros are served with seasoned potatoes and peppers and a perfectly firm avocado.  I always add a touch of the fresh habanero salsa for an extra kick.  The homemade bread and jams at Cabanas La Luna are the perfect compliment to balance the spice.

 

 

 

I love it when I am having a meal with a friend and we split dishes.  In this case I was the happy recipient of a bacon, cheese and veggie omelet.  AMAZING!

Just another Tulum Day. Living and Loving Tulum.

Beach in Tulum at Cabanas la Luna

A great view for breakfast

I am not really sure how I could have had a better Mother’s Day weekend. In Mexico Dia de las madres is Always on May 10, regardless of the day of the week- in the USA it is the 2nd Sunday. S every few years – like this one- it creates an amazing weekend of LOVE MOMMY!

Las Estrellas at Cabanas la Luna

Bacon and Cheese omelet! Yummy!

So Friday, started out by working from home as usual. After getting the kids from school we headed down to the First Friday event at Mateo’s —— This was great because there was great art everywhere- kids activities- kite flying- face painting etc. Once the kids left with their father, I stayed and covered the event for work (I love my job!) After the event I headed into town to listen to some live music! I stopped of at Curanderos and Mint and as always both were a blast. Amazingly I was in bed by 2 am (that is really early for Tulum’s nightlife! as bands do not start until 11 pm in town)Las Estrellas at Cabanas la Luna (3)

Saturday I spent my day in my bed with the ac on and watched shows on the internet. Later in the afternoon I headed out to a cenote to cool off even more.

Sunday morning was met with kids and Ruben taking me to the beach to enjoy an amazing breakfast at Cabanas La Luna (LINK) The food here is incredible we were all pretty happy. For the rest of the day we played on the beach- got a tan and drank smoothies (Cabanas La Luna makes some killer smoothies) To top off the already killer food day I had, the guys in the kitchen who are long time friends sent me home with dinner- Their special that day- Filet Mignon with asparagus and green potatoes! It was amazing! The kids and I curled up in bed and ate the best dinner we have had in a LONG time!

As if the weekend ending their would not be enough- On Monday a friend of mine was sent to give me a massage while the kids were gone with my husband- where they went I had no idea- and I really did not care- I was getting a massage jajaja I did not care about anything at that moment.

When they got home they were holding my gift…. a beautiful kitty! My long time cat, Calvin died this past year after being with me for 15 years. So getting such a special kitty was a real treat. We named him Hobbs. I must say…. this Mother’s Day is going down in history!088

A perfect night living in Tulum

Tonight was the perfect example on why I chose to live in Tulum. Tonight we decided to BBQ dinner because it was incredibly hot in the Ouse. Someone the menu was BBQ chicken legs, roasted potatoes with garlic and rosemary and hot dogs. Because what BBQ is complete without hot dogs?

For the BBQ sauce I combined one of our favorite bottled BBQ sauces with katsup, honey, salt and pepper. The chicken was delisios.

For the potatoes I chopped them up, chopped some garlic and mixed it up with salt, pepper and olive oil. I also threw in some large sprigs of rosemary so we got the flavor but did not have to bite into rough herbs.

Dessert was truly the best part of the meal. I took canned peaches and mixed them with my favorite granola, honey, brown sugar and Cointreau. I folded them in foil packets and threw them on the fire. When it was time to dig in, I served each packet with coconut IceCream. It was an amazing end to the meal.

But I must say that what made this afternoons dinner so special was the perfect example that it was of life inTulum. While sitting in my princess chair in my garden watching my BBQ, I was also watching the soccer game going on in the street getting all the 7-9 year old boys running off their dinners, a park FILLED with kids running around, moms chatting and young teenagers kissing hand in hand. In the distance you can hear the music from the dance class that happens every Monday-Friday in the park.

It was a perfect Monday night.

Matt loves his kites

After working all afternoon on the south end of the beach road in Tulum, I stopped off to see some friends of mine at Mateo’s. when I arrived I had, as I usually do at Mateo’s in Tulum, more fun then I intended.

Every time I go I meet fascinating people, I listen to amazing music, and I enjoy the enticing cocktails and food.

But today brought something much better!

I got to fly a kite from the top deck of Mateo’s. the kites were fun, colorful and best of all… Surrounded by laughter. Even when we failed and we not able to keep them afloat we had help there to make sure we did not mess anything too much.

 

I must say… Flying a kite with Matt at Mateo’s was a perfect afternoon.
