Saturday night MB and I attended the annual African dinner at the First United Methodist Church on Saturday night. Proceeds go to an orphan project in Burkina Faso and a water project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was good fun, great food, and very well-attended. I made Cameroonian peanut chicken for the potluck, which joined the 30+ other peanut chicken dishes. Happily there was also a huge container of hot dogs. For the kids presumably.


MohamedBob (1) admitting he's from Africa and (2) exhorting people to donate.

Ta! And I didn't know that I had his name sticker on my elbow. How's that for wifely devotion?

It still seems bizarre to me when I attend a potluck that doesn't feature lumpia and spaghetti. *grin*

You and MoBob look cute -- you're so happy together!

great to see you both
Great to see you both 'in person.' But tell me about the MoBob name; I hadn't heard that before. What's the origin? Guess it may be like Daoud "David" Sefiane who I met recently, grew up in Azrou speaking English, and won the green card lottery and relocated to the US with his wife and 3 daughters.

I never knew there was a stereotypical African dish but I guess peanut chicken would qualify...next time I'm bringing adobo!

it's seems that peanut chicken certainly is a contender for the dish! although it's so diverse a continent with so many cuisine styles. perhaps peanut chicken is more of a stereotype when it comes to what pleases americans?

I think so - plus stewed viper would be hard to pull off, I reckon.
