Sometime later this evening, after my husband gets home from work, we’re having some friends over. Chris invited them over so that they can jam. I think they’re going to be playing music with a bit of island flare to it. Did I not mention our friends are from the beautiful island of St. Lucia?
I always enjoy when they come over because I get to learn more about other countries and cultures. You see our friends enjoy talking about St. Lucia. I don’t blame them one bit either as it sounds like a lovely island full of friendly people and beautiful scenery.
Did you know that the people of St. Lucia enjoy Creole food? Since the island was first colonized by the French this has greatly influenced their culinary style. Perhaps I should make a Jambalaya for dinner? Or maybe some fresh fish. Whatever I make I’m sure it won’t match the style of food from St. Lucia, but I could try.
One day Chris and I will visit St. Lucia and try the various popular foods ourselves. I’m not too sure if I’ll like saltfish though. I hear it’s an acquired taste!
Our friends often tell us how beautiful the beaches of St. Lucia are, so I’m sure if we went to the island we’d be spending some time on the beach as well. Perhaps traveling around to see different ones on each side of the island.
Anyway, we should have an interesting evening tonight. Our friends are always fun to get together with, and as I said, I enjoy learning more about their original homeland of St. Lucia when they visit.
