One of the things we miss the most when we’re out of the country is home cooking.
Good family grub.
The stuff I grew up on.
I think that this is universal, especially for children. It seems that no matter where Tate and Theo are, if they can have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, carrots with ranch dressing, string cheese or popcorn, all is right in their world. Or, at the very least, mostly right.
Because we’re going to be working with kids, and kids who have already been removed from their homes, we’ve decided that it’s of utmost importance that we can provide typical Nicaraguan food for the kids. Now, it’s not our responsibility to cook for all the kids on a regular basis. But with the Transition Home, it will be.
So I’m learning how to cook Nicaraguan style. As of today I can make three different typical Nicaraguan dishes and two desserts. I know it’s not much, but it’s a start.
The next step is getting Tate and Theo to eat it!
