Humble Pie is coming to Nevis

We had a farewell party tonight for Janet and family compliments of the SOS (Spouses of Students). The person now in charge of SOS had it catered. The woman who catered it is an Irish woman who has been here for years. I think around 14 years. She and her husband own a landscaping business and also sell herbs and salad greens to the local grocery stores. They are also building a deli about a 12 minute drive from my house which I am very happy about. They are going to have meats and cheeses and prepared meals and salads and sandwiches. They will be doing meal boxes also where you can go and pick up a box for a complete weekend of meals. This will be so nice for students who don't have much time to cook for themselves. And also nice for families who don't want to cook!!! Haha. I am so excited! They are hoping to open in January. They will also have a coffee shop where you can have a cup or buy coffee beans. The food that they had tonight was phenomenal. I told Wendy (the caterer) that it was the best food I have had in Nevis so far. She was very excited and surprised to hear this news. Tonight we had marinated tomatoes and cucumbers, fresh mixed greens with balsamic dressing with fresh herbs or ranch dressing, cheesy garlic bread, marinated chicken shishkebab with zucchini and papaya, pesto pasta salad and barbecue ribs. The barbecue sauce is her own recipe which has local honey, banana and tamarind in it. It is out of this world. The ribs fell of the bone and the sauce is so tasty. We all ate plenty and got to bring home leftovers!
