A gift called, "Run Down"...
Kate shopped today for the special ingredients that go into a community, island dish, cooked over an open fire, in a cauldron, called "rundown." It is made for large groups of neighboring people on Little Corn Island, of which she was invited to join. Her first cooking of the rundown was a gift to Mike, Joe, Issy, her father and me. We took all the ingredients to Mike's house (Mary had a ladies party to attend) and Kate preceded to put together a huge pot of "rundown" for the family. It was awesome! Before dinner we had a lovely cabbage salad served with freshly fried plantains...also awesome!!
After dinner we played with Lucy (the family dog), chatted together, looked at pictures from recent trips and enjoyed their comfortable home. It was another wonderful before Christmas event!
