I helped cook today =]

We made: rice, potatoes, carrot salad, cucumber salad, soup, chicken, stuffing, pork, and I think wild pig. Guess how many people we fed. Yupp, that's right. 4. Mhm. Only 4. (There's a bunch of leftovers.)

I made the carrot salad. Recipe: Take like 6 or so carrots. Peel. Use a cheese grater to grate the carrots. Add juice from one lemon. (About 2 Tbs?) Add enough brown sugar till it tastes right. Stir. It's really good, you should all try and make it now =]

I also was helping cut stuff, like the carrots and potatoes. And I tried to help cut the liver...but that didn't happen. The liver then went in the stuffing. I tried it, but I found out that I don't like liver.

So I tried a bit (or, ya know, a lot) of pretty much all of it...And all of it was good, except for the liver-stuffing. So I am now a stuffed chicken myself. This is why exchanges gain weight...we don't eat as unhealthy as I did in America, but I sure eat a lot more, because it's all so good! Thank you, Andrea, for letting me help out today =]


  1. Kathleen-great posts. I enjoy reading them and you are so discriptive. Great job and enjoy.

  2. I love brown sugar, never thought to add it to carrots, I'll have to try that.

  3. I suspect I would have loved the liver stuffing and maybe not been so crazy for the carrot salad - sorry about that. For someone who likes carrots though, I'm sure it was Fabu.

    I am glad to know that you're at least trying all of the culturally different foods though! Some will be teriff, and some will smell and taste like old shoes - but at least you'll be able to say you've tried it!
