What we eat.

This, on the left, is what the Congolese MUST eat. It's bucardi. Corn meal & water. They haven't eaten if they haven't had this. Even if they ate a chicken, rice, 3 vegetables, potatoes, bread....etc. If they haven't had bucardi they haven't eaten.
But on Sundays we've started having spaghetti. They think it's for variety (which is partly true) but the reason we started eating it is because it was and still is on sale for .83/pkg.

And this is Michael showing us all how to cook spaghetti Nigerian style.
Everyone was shocked to see him cooking because that is not something men do in DRC.

Yum? Is the bucardi cooked? Just mixed up and made into balls?

Thanks for the post, I had been curious!

My husband's Ugandan relatives don't believe him when he says he does 90% of the cooking at our house.
