Honeymoon: We Love to Eat

Warning: If you are hungry, I recommend eating before reading.

As we approached the final days of our lovely honeymoon, we filled our bellies as fast as the good folks at El Dorado could cook. Mexican-style eggs were on the menu on Friday morning.

And that afternoon we enjoyed a Beach BBQ with ribs, chicken, beef, and spicy chorizo.

We spent the remainder of the day between the beach and the pool – always with cocktails in hand.

It was the only night during the week that we felt incredibly full when we walked out of the restaurant – must have been all of the rich, hearty, homemade pasta.
