For whatever reason, when you said that they eat a lot of coconut in Samoa, my thoughts went directly to a Bugs Bunny cartoon. He and a traveling companion were stranded on a desert island in the South Pacific with nothing but coconuts to eat... until his friend began to dream about eating rabbit... but I digress, all jokes aside, this looks lovely. Shows that there are marvelous things to eat all over the world. One never stops learning about food cultures.

Delicious looking scones Simona.. Thank you for sharing.


Dear Simona,

The Scones look delicious. I agree with you on the use of coconuts.
In my hometown, we are actually proud that we use coconuts a lot. But now Samoa seems to be ahead in this race. I am humbled ;-)
I am glad to have you around in this tour. Familiar faces are always a great comfort. :-)

See you soon.


I like the idea of the pear/coconut combination. :-)

You had me chuckle, Frank. As a child, coconut was exotic and is still is. Also, I only saw it sold whole or in pieces, while in recent years I have tasted coconut milk and oil, and used its flour, discovering its versatility. And yes, I am looking forward to learning more about world cuisine as we travel with the ABC.

You are welcome, Sreevalli.

Thank you Aparna. So glad you'll be a travel companion in the months ahead.

Simona Carini

It worked quite nicely, Paz.
