My blog friend Gabrielle has been invited to write an article for the following blog
Topics from 192 Countries.

Here is the premise behind the blog:

Topics from 192 countries

I wonder if people from 192 countries across the Globe cooperate to write one blog.
Different people, culture, society, politics, products, service…
Only one person for One Country !
One Photo for One Story

Gabrielle wrote an article along with a recipe for “satay” to represent Indonesia.

For those who have never tried this original tasty Indonesian food, here is the recipe of “Chicken Satay”:

INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch ground cumin
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cubed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 cup water
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter

2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
skewers
DIRECTIONS

In a bowl, mix soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, black pepper, and cumin. Place chicken into the mixture, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, but not overnight. This will make the meat too dark.
Preheat the grill for high heat.
Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Mix in water, peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar. Cook and stir until well blended. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill skewers about 5 minutes per side, until chicken juices run clear. Serve with the peanut sauce.
Happy cooking, happy trying and if someday you have a chance to travel to Indonesia, try it here :)
Have a great week end!

There isn’t yet a writer to represent Ethiopia, and I hope that there will be one soon with some additional exposure to the blog. From the United States, the recent post topics have included Thanksgiving, of course, and football. Not “soccer” but football.

From the Phillipines, there was a great article that supplied an overview of the country, which is where my paternal grandmother is from and I learned some neat facts from a native point of view. And how interesting about the number of languages. I never knew!

So to learn some current facts and opinions about countries from around the world, head on over. And, there is also a call for writers, so if you know of anyone that would be interested, please let them know.

    Darn. They don’t want me. No ex-pats allowed, only native born folks. Since no one in my family was born in the country we live in we don’t qualify on any level.

    Maybe I should start my own collective blog for international families …
