Learning to Cook
Yes, you read correctly!! This weekend I tried a hand at cooking. Those who know me, know that I dislike being in the kitchen. I much rather eat out every night than cook. One of my Cameroonian friends took me into her kitchen and showed me how. I had have a lot of fun preparing ndole, one of the traditional foods of Cameroon made from bitter leaves and peanuts. We added fried fish to the dish. In the picture you can see me trying to clean the fish. Yuck! I’ve never cleaned a fish myself. When I started the task, I just assumed that the fish came clean. Oh how wrong I was! I found myself tugging, cutting, and washing the insides of this fish. After squirming and making funny faces, the fish was finally clean and ready for frying. To accompany the dish we also fried plantains.
And, the most exciting part was that it actually tasted good!!
