Yesterday was our first day off in the tour, and we spent most of it driving.
Today however, I had time to cook. So I got up and went to the town's market, thinking I don't need a plan or a shopping list, I'd just get inspired (or see what's cheapest), then go back home, look at what I got and think of something to do with it. It didn't work quite as smoothly however, I kinda got confused and in the middle of things, realizing I wasn't getting the best things, and I didn't really have any idea on what i already have and what I want to make out of it.
So I just decided to go back home and hope for the best.
This is what I came up with so far. More to come (as the picture shows I still have stuff I didn't use).
Radish and cucumber salad:
Half a cucumber (if you're in a country with huge cucumbers, 2 if they're small).
1 Small onion, cut into fine half-rings.
1cm Fresh ginger root, chopped.
A few mint leaves, torn.
1/2 tsp sugar.
1/2 tsp hot mustard.
Juice from half a lime.
Mix everything together.
(Next time I'm going to use pineapple instead of sugar, and maybe loose the mustard).
