Most volunteers are more than obsessed about food. Buying really good food is hard to come by, but you can actually get most ingredients to make some really good food. A lot of volunteers become really good cooks during their 2 years service. Before coming here I thought I was a decent cook, but it wasn’t until I got here that I became an even better cook. This is mostly because most things at home that I would get out of a can I now have to make from scratch. So here are some pictures of my favorite meals that I’ve made myself since getting here.
Pasta in Alfredo Sauce
Homemade Pasta in Marinara Sauce
Many Varieties of Pizza
Pizza with Onions and Jalapenos
Plain Cheese Pizza
Pizza with Peppers and Onions
Raviolis (filled with paneer)
Rice Pudding with Raisins
Tomato Soup and Tuna Cakes
And all of this was made without having running water in my kitchen and some of it was made without power. Let me just say that boredom eventually hits you.
