How to eat a Rolex in Uganda?

Now, first off, in Uganda, a Rolex is not usually going to be a fancy, high-priced wristwatch. Rolex is Uganda’s favorite fast food. It is available everywhere, in restaurants and in the market at street vendors, pre-prepared and ready to eat. Rolex is basically a chapati, rolled up with seasoned scrambled eggs, or maybe cabbage and tomatoes inside – sometimes all three. It is cheap, oh-so-tasty, and you can now experience how to eat a Rolex right at home!

This Paprika Spicy Rabbit recipe is taken from our All-American Wild Game Cuisine page. For lots more great wild game dishes, click here.


Lots of Americans, including me, love rabbit. It’s low in fat, nutritious, tasty, and is a great meat ingredient in many recipes. You can often substitute chicken for the meat in recipes that call for rabbit. But if you are a wild game meat lover, you will enjoy the taste of real rabbit. This Paprika Spicy Rabbit recipe is especially flavorful. If you live in northern regions, where winters are cold, try having some in front of the fireplace. Such comfort food, as if sent from heaven!

Plantains Edible and Incredible

Share

Most people (in North America, where I live, anyway) think of the plantains as a kind of banana, only bigger and not as tasty of a fruit. However, while plantains are a relative of the banana, they are, in fact, not a fruit at all. These incredible edible Plantains are actually herbs … and therefore definitely not bananas.

What? You say? These giant “trees” (they grow to heights of over 30 feet) are really overgrown herb plants?

Yep.

In doing my study for this article, I came across quite a number of little-known and interesting facts about plantains, a member of the Plantaginaceae family. Allow me list some things you may not know about:
