Have you tried Belizean food? My top picks

Have you ever tried Belizean food? Well most of our friends had not so for my husbands birthday we decided to throw a Belizean themed birthday food party. As you may know from reading my about me: My husband is from Belize.  Belize is on the eastern coast of Cental America. Belize is bordered on the north by Mexico, on the south and west by Guatemala and on the east by the Caribbean Sea. Check out my Pinterest Travel Board on Belize to learn more.

Instead of presents my hubby wanted all the guests to bring gently used soccer items for donation.  Our friend Julie was a huge help in getting that part organized.  See below for all the generous donations.  Now lets get onto the food:
