“How’s the food?”

“How’s the food?”

Yes, it’s the most frequently asked question!

Food over the past month has been a challenge to figure out for me, being not-so-good in the kitchen. I enjoy eating it, but leave me to prepare my own food and I’m going to need a little bit of help. Please enjoy this photo caption blog about my food experiences so far.



It’s interesting that basically half or more of my friends here are vegetarian or prefer to eat little red meat. This makes it easy for me to choose vegetarian options, and have to go out of my way to eat meat. I don’t mind, as long as I’m still getting enough protein!

That aside, potluck meals with friends is where it’s at! We all talk about food, how to cook it, where we got the ingredients, etcetera. Gathering together over food really encourages me to do a little more exploring in the Shuk and in the kitchen. I’m on my way to a dinner tonight, in fact. I’m making pasta, and bringing a cheese for it that I bought today.

Here’s to good eats and learning many delicious things!
