This is lunch for two-the white stuff is kind of like instant grits, and the stew is goat with tomatoes and onions. Usually there are some local greens that are a lot like spinach. Good eating! Really! And, almost as convenient as driving through McDonald’s, because I get it at a little restaurant across the street. It costs me about 50 cents a meal.
When I first got here, I brought everything home, dumped it in a pot, and boiled it for a half hour. I’ve gotten over that-it’s a clean place, they keep everything covered and the stew is boiling all day long.
Going there is great language practice, too. I greet everybody and order in mmm-BELLY-may. My latest feat is understanding the price! More later about the fun way they do numbers when it comes to money.
