First Thanksgiving in Belize

Our celebration of Thanksgiving yesterday was simple just like we wanted. After we both chatted with our families back in the states we took a walk over to get our dinner.

The Wing Stop... Best Wings in Belize

Reasonable Prices... it is 2BZD to 1USD

There is a comfortable eating area in the courtyard.

We decided to split a 12 piece order of Spicy Mango Chicken wings and a double order of fries.  The sauce on the wings and the spices on the french fries are just divine.  Our total bill with soft drinks included was just $24BZD ($12USD)  and there were no dishes for me to wash after dinner!

With our bellies satisfied we went to the supermarket to pick up a few things to make my sweet potato cheesecake and then over to a place across the street for ice cream.  It was a relaxing day for the both of us.  I finished off the day watching one of my favorite holiday movies, White Christmas, while Tom enjoyed Clippers and Sacramento Kings basketball game. 

Enjoy your weekend!
