Casado – a “marriage of foods”

One of my favorite meals in Costa Rica is casado, a popular plated lunch or light dinner of black beans, rice, salad and meat or fish. During our five days in Drake Bay on the Osa Peninsula, we ate in a “soda” or small family restaurant every night. Because the location is remote, supplies are delivered by boat or in limited quantities by truck.  Casado is a simple and fresh menu feature of every soda in town. And it’s healthy. I know because my beach pants are fitting looser than usual – a good sign!
