What's for dinner?

Tonight, it's one of our favorite meals with mostly all local ingredients. Papaya and passion fruit salad from the market with a squeeze of lemon juice from our garden.

For the main dish, beans and rice from the market along with a yummy addition I leaned how to make in Brazil. Manioc (a root vegetable like a yam) is dried and grated and found in the market or in the villages. Saute this with onions and bacon and it's great with beans and rice!

Have a great weekend!

    Sounds delicious, and the best thing? Even with all my food intolerances/sensitivities I could eat the ENTIRE meal :) I'll be over shortly...
    BTW, I grew up in Johannesburg, SA, about the same latitude, just different country. Love reading your "tweets", they bring back many memories of living in SA and Venezuela.

  2. Thanks for stopping by,Jennifer. Would love to have you over for dinner to chat about SA! Blessings.
