Day 5 Jamaica Trip April 2024

 Today my friends aunt was coming to pick us up at 10. I went for breakfast at 9:30. My friend was there earlier and she got some plantains today but they weren’t very ripe. Breakfast was the same as yesterday for me so I didn’t take any pictures. In the morning I did call for some bottles of water to my room but it was too early I learned I could get some at the buffet.  My friends aunt was delayed so had time to sit at the coffee shop. This was the view from the coffee area. We chatted with security and the taxi driver at the hotel for awhile before we left. We didn’t leave the hotel until 12. My friends aunt got proper plantains we ate it in the car. Today we decided to go to Ocho Rios. I have never been there and it is not that far from where we are staying. We have a driver booked for tomorrow to take us around the area and Bob Marley house tour. My friends aunt wanted Pizza Hut we stopped in a plaza that had KFC, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut. Last time I was in Jamaica I saw the plan

Vegan Noodle Soup

If you don't have a soup maker I really love mine. I bought it years ago it is a kettle with a blender in it where you just put the ingredients in press the timer and in 25-28 minutes you have soup. This recipe can be made in a pot but I made it in the soup maker.  Ingredients  Vegan Broth 1 Sweet Potato cut into pieces half a white onion sliced 3 small carrots  (I was practicing with my spiralizer) 1 package smoked tofu curry spice pepper rice noodles additional water  1 tsp olive oil I had never used the carrot spiralizing tool before and I forgot I had carrots. I tried to use it on a sweet potato it didn't work so that is why this soup has carrots and sweet potato in it. I found the soup maker works best if you use a little bit of fat in it which is why I added olive oil. Add the oil, onion, sweet potato, spices, broth and fill to the line with water. Plug the soup maker in and select chunky for the type of soup
