This little tale comes from our gourmet restaurant booking where we were to have a typical Cape Verdean meal.
Since being in Cape Verde, Jánine hasn’t found a dessert she likes, and if you know Jánine, you’ll know this is no small thing 😭 tears before bedtime and all that. Lol
So as usual with us, we check out what the dessert offerings are before starting our attack run on everything else.
There were a couple of possible targets identified from our recon., but you never quite know till the moment you destroy it.
So after sampling the candidates, it appears one of the desserts ticked all Jánine’s boxes, well one really… sickly sweet with a ton of sugar.
So as we’re eating our meal the conversation turns to how do we get a batch of the amazing dessert back to our room without being seen?
After getting our fill and finishing the lovely meal, I came up with a plan… finish my drink, then simply fill the glass with the amazing white chocolate / coconut goodness that was the holy grail of desserts, then while the waiters / waitresses weren’t looking…do a runner with our illgotten gains. 😉
Once we were back in the room, I’m then told we can’t have the maid in till it’s all gone as she’ll find out what we’ve done.
By the following morning, all evidence was gone…like a magic trick! Ta da! It’s safe for the maid to enter again.
The only problem left, is how do I persuade Jánine to not barge in there again tomorrow night with a balaclava and a celery stick shouting it’s a stick up!?
Update: the following night, I managed to brazenly walk into the restaurant (which we weren’t booked to eat in) and fill a plate of the same chocolatey goodness just for my daring. ❤️
