The weekend is here! Yet… I don’t feel in my usual relaxed weekend mode. After I write this post I am going to go and change the window out at the library, then list some printers we no longer use on Craig’s List, work on securing authors for Wine and Words, and start to prep our Friends Annual meeting agenda that is Monday evening. Hopefully later this afternoon Al and I will meet up with our son Brad to eat and catch up.
Speaking of food…
One of the great things about vacation is of course, all the delicious food and no cooking it! We recently returned from Cancun, a trip we took to Moon Palace, an all inclusive resort with friends. I am normally a big picture taker, but not so much this time so relying on those that were with us to come up with great pics – however… I did grab some food pics. You know that crazy person that is in a restaurant and whips out their camera to take a picture of their food? Say hi next time, that is me. 😉
Above: By the pools there were several places you could grab a quick bite to eat. They had everything from chicken wings to burgers…. salads to cookies…. nachos to hot dogs on the grill. And yes, they had pizza. We had the pizza a couple of times during the week we were there. They made it in front of you and cooked it in this cool brick oven. The pizzas cooked in about two minutes.
Below: One of the days a few of our group went into Cancun to see the shops. They had beautiful items for sale but I am not a big fan of the hustling and the pushiness of the vendors. Still, it was nice to say that I did go into Cancun. Before we headed back to the resort we grabbed a bite in a Mexican restaurant in the area. The food was tasty!
Below: My husband Al, and a couple of the other guys, Ray and Jim, went fishing one morning. They caught quite a few fish in the few hours they were out including this big Mahi Mahi which the chefs at the resort cooked for us that evening for our dinner. It was a great experience for the guys and it was fun to taste the fresh fish they caught.
I am adding this post to the Saturday Snapshot meme and Weekend Cooking.

Ooooh, I keep harping on Mr. BFR to build me one of those outdoor ovens! How cook is that one? Food … one of the things I love about travel. Looks like you all had a good time. You deserve some relaxing, fun days.
One of the couples we were with are builders and they have an outdoor kitchen. They said they may add one of these this next year! I hope they do!
I am a person who takes photos of my food in restaurants…LOL. I developed the habit when my son and DIL were here in the summer and fall…it was her first trip to America, and she was fascinated with everything.
Now I want to eat Mexican food!
I’m also that crazy person that is always photographing my food at restaurants. LOL. That’s an impressive fish! Pretty cool that they cooked it up for you guys!
Cancun … such a great place! I really want to get back there. It was the first place I saw guacamole made tableside in a molcajete! I love the open ovens you showed.

I discovered the joys of onion rings in Cancun! Thanks for the memories. Cheers
Wow, that’s some fish! I’m glad you enjoyed your trip to Cancun.
It sounds like a fun trip with lots of good food to enjoy. Loving that big mahi mahi picture–they look so proud! 😉
Yum, pizza! That fish is a great catch!
That is a really cool pizza process. So fun that you got to eat Al’s fish!
It looks like y’all ate well!
There is no better food than on vacation food! Have a wonderful weekend, Sheila!
Looks like an enjoyable respite from cold MN. I love real Mexican food. It is so different from the Tex-Mex that we are used to in my neck of the woods. I like that too, but real Mexican is better. Thanks for sharing.
What a nice, relaxing break. When I was in Cancun I loved all the food at the resort – and not just because I didn’t have to cook it! I used to be that person taking food pics, now I’m the crazy lady photographing the birds.
Looks as though you had a wonderful trip. I think I gained a few pounds just looking at the food in your photos. Glad you had a nice trip.
I just ate lunch…but looking at these pics makes me hungry again! Yum!
