I thought I would do a post on foods we do eat. We do not miss much at this point. I know we will the closer we get to coming home.
We do not have much of a variety and its our job to let the cooks know what to make.
We always have rice and beans in some Form and usually some sort of sauce to go with it. Usually a beans sauce or red sauce.
Several times we will have fried plantains.
We will have different veggies. We brought canned corn and brand with us. The cooks take tje beans and add carrots, onions and some other items and it is so good.
For meats we have beef, goat, or chicken. The beef is made a little bit like we do at home. The goat is fried or cooked like the beef. Tje chicken is one of 3 ways. Fried, bbq (using a ketchup mixture and then baked) or fried using a mixture of butter, flour, mayonnaise and mustard. All of them are very good. Sometimes we will have a good pasta salad with supper too. We addre in mashed potatoes every now and then.
For breakfast we will rotate eggs or oatmeal, lots of fruit and fresh juice and bread. We will make a potatoe dish some mornings. One morning we had something called pate. Looks like a fried pasty with meat and veggies in it. It is one of the best things I have tasted in awhile.
For lunch we have fruit, avacado, bread with peanut butter or cheese.
On the weekends we give the cooks off. We a lot of times will make soup and the other night Haitian spaghetti. We make a huge pot of shell noodles and then add hot dogs, onion, garlic, peppers, hot peppers, green onion, and chicken bullion and cook that in oil. You eat it plain or with ketchup. So good.
We drink coke, sprite, 7-up, tampico juice (you can buy in the states) or another kind of Caribbean brand orange or fruit punch that is very good.
Not much for snacks here. Sometimes we will get packaged cookies that are good.
I am sure I am missing something. But this will give you a basic idea.
