Cooking in Ghana, Africa

Filed under: News Updates @ 3:20 pm and

This is an experience everyone can relate to, cooking. I chose to cook the afternoon meal to learn their ways and show them an American recipe. I tried to come up with items that they had ingredients accessible to them in their kitchen or could go to town to get. Substitution is necessary as they are limited with what is available. I made my oatmeal chicken in an oven operated by fire and I cut yams into French fries and cooked them in oil on a propane stove. Then for dessert I baked in the oven banana boats with marshmallow and chocolate that I had brought from home. I have to say they were mighty tasty and enjoyed by all. I did all this with no power and it was actually no inconvenience as cooking is done outside. I have to say I was exhausted when I got done and I had only prepared one meal. It puts it into perspective how much work they do just to eat.

    Hey Theresa and Joe!

    I love reading your blogs. I’ve been thinking and praying for you both. Sounds like things are going well. Theresa, you are the only person I know that would think to pack marshmallows! That really cracked me up. But I appreciated what you said about how wasteful we are. Made me feel more thankful today. I love you dearly and can’t wait ’til you get home! Ali
