    Hi Zurie and every other lurking African. wave.gif
    I'm not African, but I have spent a lot of time on your wonderful continent.
    I travel a lot, too, and haven't visited this forum for ages. Sorry. icon_sad.gif
    Hope to change that over the next little while—before my next travels begin.

    Legs, you have SUCH a fascinating travelling life. Just, please, one day, sit down and write a book!!

    It will be a hit! Do not detail too much of the mundane stuff.

    Lift out the unforgettables, the terrible, the incredible travelling companions, strange food, sickness, strange incidents, beautiful places -- you know what I mean.

    Also: your honest observations of people and places.

    It should be a hit. I'll be first in line to put in an order! I am sooo curious already.

    Oh Zurie, I have enough trouble keeping up with the blog.
    I'll put it all there for now. Besides there's no queue and it's free. icon_smile.gif

    Oh Legs! I forgot about your brilliant blog!! Thanks for the reminder, but yesterday I had to drag myself away -- great self-discipline was needed -- from your blog!! Excellent photos, great writing style, and you go to a lot of trouble to tell the history and the impressions and tales.

    Ayayayy, Legs ...

    Fantastic blog. I'll try and keep up with it. You're a star.

    This forum is dead. You can see by the thread headings how I've tried ...

    Anyway, thanks a span for posting in here.

    I'd give a lot to know what exactly the stats are as far as page views on this site is concerned. We hosts have no idea where we stand.

    Zurie, the site gets lots of page views.
    You can even check here Type in

    But page views don't make a community. It's going to take time to rebuild.
    Zaar was going for almost four years before I got involved. So we wait
    and plug away.

    P.S. Glad you like the blog.

    Hi Joy,
    The reason I came to this forum was a conversation my daughter and I had last evening about one of the students at her university... she knows he lives on a very tight budget and I thought if I could make some 'large' lunches for her she could share with him....My DD works In admin at the university, but she speaks with him often and sometimes he comes into her office and she gives him fruits, nuts, dried apricots etc.... He misses his family in Africa, but knows he needs an education so he can go back and hopefully, be able to provide them with a better life. My DD and I like all different ethnic foods, so we are up for a challenge and a new adventure in using some different spices etc... She has shared some lunches with him, but he really misses 'his' home cooked foods... not that I expect my experiments will be like his mother's cooking!!! LOL!!!
    I have never cooked anything with 'African' spices etc. and have no idea what to make, I have chicken and beef on hand, also lots of vegetables - onions, garlic, eggplant, sweet peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, many dried spices, dried prunes, apricots and fresh coriander and thyme.... any ideas you can suggest would be greatly appreciated....

    Thank You!

    Hi Elly

    Welcome to the African Forum
    It is so lovely that you are interested in helping this young man enjoy a
    taste of home. And you'll be relieved to know that African cooking is not
    hard or expensive. But it would help a lot to know which African country
    he comes from.

    I spent all of 2009 travelling in Africa—29 countries—and encountered so
    many different cuisines. Much to hubby's chagrin, I acquired a lot of
    cookbooks too. icon_redface.gif

    So ask your daughter for a bit more info and whether this young man has
    favourite dishes or types of dishes. Then I could see what the cookbooks
    yield, or any other visitor to this thread might come up with some options.

    It's like a scavenger hunt. Yay!

    very popular in Nigeria. Here a link to the jollof recipes here.
