Friends in TX sent us roasted corn flour so that we could make "Tom Brown"--a Ghanaian porridge. I made it according to the recipe here. After it was made we added evaporated milk and a bit of sugar. It must have tasted pretty close to home because she ate that stuff up QUICK with a slice of Ghanaian-style white bread! You could just tell it was comfort food for her.
Bright tried it and as excited that it was "Ghana food" but didn't like it. Oh how he LOVED Tom Brown before he came home two years ago!
Taevy, or always adventurous eater (who loves popcorn) ate quite a bit (because it tastes a bit like popcorn porridge). A little later, she admitted that it wasn't sitting so well.
Samren tried it and gagged (literally). He is NOT an adventurous eater. Eric shared Samren's opinion!
I'm so glad to be able to give Kendi a little taste of home. She is such a trooper. We got our first "Me do wo" (I love you) tonight. We've been getting exclaimations of "Atu" (hug) for a few days. As I sit here writing this she is cuddled up in the crook of my arm. She's been home for two weeks today and it still feels like the honeymoon that will never end!
P.S. I did not put that hat on her. That was her own doing!
