Venting Needed

Just a note on my Senegalese mother. I need to vent a little. For dinner both Saturday and Sunday night I was given chiakry, which is basially yogurt with a little millet in it. A good snack, but not a meal! Especially not two nights in a row. This is in addition to the butterless piece of bread she gives me for “breakfast” in the morning, which I end up buying butter for, and suplementing with fruit or yogurt and juice.
Also, the entire month of November, we have eaten lunch’s leftovers for dinner, which means 2 things: 1) I eat the same thing twice in one day, and 2) I usually don’t get to eat enough for dinner, cuz there never really is enough leftover from lunch to consist of an entire meal.
Sorry, I just needed to vent.
