Dinner in Ghana
I arrived in Accra today and managed to get a little food in the house in Tema. I threw together dinner tonight (carpenters are downstairs in the kitchen, so I brought a hot plate and rice cooker upstairs, and balanced everything on a tiny table): just rice, braised cabbage, and a simple stew, with Ghana pineapple for dessert.
This post is also to let folks in Ghana know I'm here. My old SIM card doesn't work, so tomorrow I'll get a new one and likely a different phone number, too. Husband home in Pennsylvania Skyped me and insisted I take a picture of the first meal I cooked in our house here.
It's fabulous to be home (more on the house that DK built later). I'm pretty tired, though, and managed to slice my finger while I was cutting peppers. Ouch.
