ANOTHER HAITIAN FAVORITE AMONG CHILDREN

Haitian children  love maiz moulu.  This is basically coarse ground corn.  In the United States it is called polenta.  To prepare it  boil three cups of water, add one cup polenta and stir well.  Most Haitians eat it with avocado slices  and top it with herring.  To prepare herring stir fry onions, garlic and oil, add the herring  let it  simmer until the onions are tender.  This dish is definitely a favorite for all Haitian children.  You can buy the herring at most grtocery store.  Make sure it is the salted variety.  Look for it in the fish section of your grocery store.

MORE FUNDRAISERS FOR MY BELOVED HAITI

My daughter who is spending the spring semester in Lausanne Switzerland along with other students  helped raised 2,000 dollars for  Haiti relief.  I am so very proud of her.  She cooked a Haitian meal for 80 people,  as part of the fundraiser.  Here is a you tube video of  the students talking about the fundraiser.  My daughter is the girl with the glasses.
