I wanna say to all you new (and old) followers of the blog - WELCOME!
And I am honoured that you have decided to follow me, and I appreciate it!
Today we have reached the letter P. 10 letters left, if I'm not making a gigantic alphabet blunder again. And if I'm not adding the 3 extra letters we have in the Norwegian alphabet.
Under P comes Pounding fufu. Unfortunately the picture of me pounding doesn't exist on my harddisk, but I did pound it though. Trying to impress Hubby with fufu on an early stage of our relationship. The pic is taken in Haatso, Accra, where I stayed for a 4 month period, working as a personal assistant for a Norwegian student doing research in Ghana. We shared accomodation with this strapping young man who is pounding, while I'm doing the so called "driving" (?), scared to death that my fingers will be one of the ingredients in the fufu.
For those with no Ghanaian reference reading this, fufu is ... boiled yam, cassava and/or plaintain, which is pounded together like on the picture, and it eventually turns into a ball, sticky, like dough...which is placed into a delicious soup and eaten. And enjoyed!
what is YOUR favorite soup?
Good things today (and these are good!):
1. Went to the 6.45 spinning class at the gym, all ALONE (usually i go with a friend).
2. Had lots of chocolate in front of me during a staff meeting, but I didnt touch it.
3. Finished my mom's Christmas present. I think.
