On Saturday night we were invited to our new friends house. The young Sudanese couple that we met at mass invited us to share an african meal with them.
We were thrilled to receive the invite. They have been coming to our home for fish and chips most friday nights so this time it was their turn to host us.
George was very proud to invite us in and share the meal and gave a small speech at the start. He was very grateful for the the help we have given them since coming to Australia and is very keen to learn our ways.
Just before we started the meal we were told that we would be using our fingers instead of utensils. Wow that is something different. We tried many different dishes all of which were very nice. The best would have to have been a variation of Spring Rolls. They had minced meat, peas, beans, capsicum and garlic. They were very nice.
The africans also make this type of flat bread. The idea is to break off pieces of the bread and use it to pick up the different types of food. It also doubled as a way of cleaning your plate up nice and clean......LOL.
We have been very muli-cultural in our house lately. Its so nice to learn about other customs and cultures.
