Ever the scientist, I've been trying to sample one or two new things at every buffet meal here. Some turn out great, like the scoop of gray mush I found near the eggs at breakfast this morning (seasoned plantain mash, delicious!) Some not so good: cherry tomato sauce on waffles? (Yes really, it was right there with the syrup and honey.) Ok, I'll try most things once. And then the head-scratchers. Right next to the oatmeal, a tureen of hot puréed squash. With the previous evening's postre (dessert) of cinnamon ice cream on roasted pumpkin in mind, I tried putting cinnamon and sugar from the bowls nearby on the pumpkin purée as I would have done for the oatmeal, but nope. It was inedible. Clearly I was supposed to do something else with the squash but who knows what? This is not a familiar cuisine for me and without context or directions, I'm lost. I'm still willing to try again at breakfast tomorrow though and in the end, that's all that matters.
