Mikate (At every Congolese party/gathering there will always be mikate on the table)

Looks like a Nigerian party too, puff puff!

or Burundian 

Is it the same as a dumpling?

I don’t know. Which type of dumpling are you talking about?

In Jamaica we have friend dumpling which looks a little similar 

This is one shape. I was just wondering if its the same, its usually just flour, or cornmeal, baking soda and water.

Ohhhhhh…are they similar to festivals because I had them for the first time on Monday.

I think what people use to make mikate differs from province to province. But the basic ingredients are flour, yeast, sugar and water (+ vanilla). and it’s usually eaten with peanuts or peanut butter. I’ve had savory ones where they have prawns and other seas foods in the middle. Even though I love the sweet ones, the savory ones are to die for. 

Yep. Festivals are just dumplings with sugar lol.

OMG that sounds soooo good! I should really try some out or cook some myself! Food. <3333 It’s good to see that somethings are the similar even if we live in different places.

Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus.
