About two days before Hurricane Sandy arrived, I walked to the grocery store to do some food shopping. It was a nice day and there were a lot of people outside.
In front of the grocery store for sale were pumpkins of all kinds.
Inside, I did my grocery shopping. I was supposed to buy non perishable food but I didnt. Oh well. Let’s see what we have here: Eggplant, lamb, rice, salt…
… bananas, oranges, red & green bell peppers, sweet potatoes, and grapes. Oh, salt and zucchini (do you see it?).
I came home and cooked some jollof rice, which is an African-style rice that includes meat or chicken with vegetables. One can also prepare a vegetarian-style jollof rice. Depending on the country, the jollof rice is prepared differently. This time, I made a Senegalese-style jollof rice from the recipe my Senegalese friend had given me. I’d watched her cook it in her home. Her food is always delicious. While my jollof rice didn’t taste as good as hers, it was still delicious. I was happy with my dish.
I sure hope Hurricane Sandy doesn’t last long or do any damage. I need to go out and do some food shopping again.
Have a good new week, everyone
