Pepā for some salsa I have been craving for so long!! I added "a little bit of this and a little bit of dat" from the wonderful variety spices and seasonings we got from Union, plus some of the "green spice" from market for an excellent salsa if I must say so myself! ;) hehe, Mary and Alyssa did an incredible job on the tortillas and gave them a little bit of seasoning of their own. we took it over to Bill and Trixy's house where there was a big pot of rice and a wonderful stirfry of veggies that the interns had put together!! We combined our works of art for one of the yummiest American Mexican food in Africa Friday night meals you can imagine! MMMmmmmmm! it was SO GOOD!
A great meal must be followed by an equally great dessert... after we tickled our taste buds with the amazing tortillas this dessert just kinda evolved, with direct result in mind we just started cutting up banana and melting some Cameroonian chocolate, soon granola, chopped nuts, brow sugar, and peanut butter was added! What a great serendipity!
We did it Schumacher style and all dug in!

Sunday morning started out GOOD :) powdered soy milk was one of the things I asked our SM directors back at Union to send AND surprize granola from Cherilyn was one of the many goodies that came with pastor Rich!! It was such a YUMMY treat!!
All the ladies that come into the clinic tell us that Cameroonian men can't cook and their men cant even boil water, but Richard sure was hospitable and perpared us an impressive meal! Coco-yams, Plantains, and Jamma-Jamma.
No furniture in the house :) just gathered around in a circle on the floor, this area rug by the way, is the first contact with "carpet" of any kind I've had since I'm here.
I'm so blessed by the friends God has given me here in Cameroon, red and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight! I love the African concept of EVERYONE being your brother, sister, auntie or uncle!! What a special family I have here!
