Cooking at a friends house

After bike riding and walking through muddy and rocky flooded streets I finally reached a friends house. Before washing my feet and going inside she got me to pick a banana flower for the salad we were going to make. It's really yummy, I'll have to explain how to make it on my food blog sometime.
She has a small back yard but grows so much food in it. Lots of veggies and fruit (a melon/marrow thingy, papaya) as well as chicken and she can sometimes catch fish as well.
One time I was there she showed me a type of plant that people use if they only have old rice to cook. You pick the long green leaf and put it in the pot when the rice is cooking. It makes the rice smell nice, even though it's old. Her mum used to use it a lot cos her dad was in the army so they received rice rations.

Next time we are planning to make a banana and sago dessert, and I'm planning to wear gumboots.
