Whenever we have American groups come down for a work week, we always take them into the community one night to have dinner with one of the families. This is a great cultural experience and always one of the highlights of their trip. The last time that we had a group, our Dominican host, Katty, was curious about typical American food. So I decided to invite some of my friends from Mata Gorda to my house one evening for an American meal.
Here is Katty, Meri, Alberto, Enmanuel, Maira, Johanny, and Raffa in my living room.
The meal: Pork tenderloin, ravioli with pesto sauce, sauteed green beans, garlic bread, iced tea. They loved it!
Enmanuel especially enjoyed nibbling at the garlic bread and since that night mentions almost everyday at school about how he got to come to my house.
Cristian and I eating Molten Chocolate Baby Cakes for dessert. MMMMMM....
It was such a special night having these special friends at my house and cooking for them, which is something that I love to do.
