Tonight's Menu:

Steamed Cassava
Pinto Beans with Yellow Potatoes
White Rice
Sweet Potatoes
French Fries
Fresh Pineapple

Tonight our small group from church hosted ten Rwandan students for dinner, singing and praying. We tried to cook some of their favorites from home. It wasn't until it was all assembled that we realized it was basically a starch buffet...but the students seemed to enjoy it. Mostly they were suprised that we found recipes, I think. I had never had Cassava, which is a starchy tuber much like a potato, but much more flavorful. I really liked it and plan to eat it again! The kachumbari was a lot like very chunky salsa, made with tomatoes, chilies, onion, lime and cilantro. Very tasty.
