An introduction to stuffing
Awhile ago, a company donated dozens and dozens of boxes of American-style stuffing to Casa Shalom. As stuffing isn't eaten here in Guatemala and no one knows how to prepare it, the boxes have remained untouched. The new director decided this was simply too wasteful and sent boxes of the stuffing to each home to be cooked and eaten. Tonight, the teenage boys asked us if we could help them prepare the stuffing. We cooked a batch of the stuffing to see if they would like it - they did, and nearly all 14 of them asked for seconds. So we cooked a second batch. In all, we cooked 7 bags of stuffing tonight!
