Last Summer I helped Art Institute students make coleslaw for the annual Strike Out Homelessness Event- Pre-game party and Minnesota Twins Baseball Game. We were given some cabbage and were supposed to find in the kitchen the rest of whatever ingredients we thought were essential to complete our task. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Fortunately, two of us agreed that we prefered creamy to vinaigrette.
At the end of the evening the husband of the owner of Maria’s Cafe brought around paper cups of water for us to drink.
Since at that time I was using the tourist souvenir Colombia bag that Mrs. Z had brought back from one of their return trips, Maria asked what my connection to her homeland might be.
Maybe she’ll be there again and I’ll be more prepared to chat.
