"Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful bead jewelry, and people who care open their hearts, homes, and communitites to buy and sell the beads. The beads become income, food, medicine, school fees, and hope. All net profits from BeadforLife are invested in community development projects that help people work their way out of poverty."
In reviewing the available recipes, I decided I'd try Ugandan Kabobs with a yogurt dipping sauce. It turns out that in Uganda, a kabob is a meatball. After tasting my results, I can't say I'm a fan of these and wouldn't make them again, but it was fun to try for tonight's dinner. Here's what we had on our buffet table:
- Beef Kabobs with Yogurt Dipping Sauce (my offering)
- Kale with Leeks
- Curried Potatoes
- Couscous Salad with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, & Feta
- Pineapple Peanut Bread with Cream Cheese (2 different recipes made with different types of flour)
- Coffee, Tea and Amarula (liqueur made from the African Marula plant)
This time around, we didn't have the usual non-ethnic options for those not interested in venturing into the world of Ugandan cuisine...looks like people are getting more daring!
