Box of Chicken

One of our Cameroonian colleagues who works in the Finance Department, also sells frozen boxes of chicken.  She won’t divulge where she gets the boxes from.  I find comfort in buying the chicken because it does go through inspection by the USDA.  I know there are many people who don’t like all the inspections and governmental involvement with their food, but for me it’s comforting, if only you could see some of things we see on a daily basis.  I found the packaging of the box funny.  We are used to seeing food packaged with many different languages (just today we had a Pringles can that had the ingredients written in 19 different languages), but when I saw this box I thought this chicken was packaged for international selling.  The packaging is in many languages and the weight in kilos.

    I guess the frozen chicken is better than having to purchase a live chicken and then kill, pluck and prepare it.

    Good for you that you’ve found a local source there for US government-inspected chicken! You’re resourceful and wise. Three times a day (meal times) I pray for healthy, good-quality, safe and sufficient quantities of food for you, David and the boys. Doing so before I eat reminds me of God’s generous, abundant supply/storehouse of blessings that cover your and my needs, both here in the US and in your neck of the woods. Love you! Mom
