WFP Liberia- American Style

Pasta Saturday was put on hold this week. Instead Ruthia, Roz and I decided to cook a meal for some of our WFP colleagues. They are always cooking for us, so this time it was our turn. Satisfying 5 Liberians at meal time is not an easy feat, unless you cook rice, fish and pepper soup. But even then, the fish needs to be fried correctly, the rice needs to be fluffy and the pepper soup needs just the right amount of kick to it.

After a long debate, we decided to cook Hawaiian chicken over rice, samosas and guacamole. We were lucky enough to find pineapple, chicken, and avacados in town (I am as shocked as you!). I made the guac, Ruthia took on the samosas (which were freaking delicious), and Roz made the Hawaiian chicken (also delicious!). Yeah, I got the easy dish.
When it came time to eat, everyone sat down at the table with looks of fear on their faces... It was obvious they didn't trust us. They all ate, but whether or not they liked it is still up for debate. We kept the beer flowing and everyone seemed to have a good time!

I will miss these people!
