Trust, Is It Really So Hard?

Mukimo

Wrapping up our Bizarre Foods? series today. I hope that you have seen that the foods we eat are not all that bizarre. For sure we did not get to them all; intestines, goat heads, and other such foods. Not to worry, those are not everyday food items.

Tonight for dinner we had mukimo (which is mashed potatoes, plantains, maize (which is hard white corn,) and sometimes pumpkin leaves. The side dish was cabbage. Desert was sweet potato crumble. The night before we had chicken stew.

Actually nowadays with food prices so high we just eat what is affordable. There are far more vegetarian dishes on the menu now, and cheese is fairly scarce. Yet thanks to the generosity of folks we have been able to eat everyday so far.
