Foodie Friday

Just go ahead and call me Safari Woman

When you are in a place where mostly whole foods and rice are served, finding ingredients for an at-home favorite is very unlikely. However, if you are willing to search and pay a little more, your chances increase. Since the group works during the day, I try to keep myself busy. Today: Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls. Making these would keep ya busy for a good half-day in America and the way things are looking, it is going to take a while here as well.

All the ingredients! 30,000 TSH total, that's about $19

Despite craving something sweet, the food here is delicious. Taking out the substantial amount of carbs, it is healthy too. This girl loves some white rice though and I could easily be served two cups of it per meal if I wished.

Spiced rice (tastes like white rice with a hint of cinnamon and sugar), cooked tomatoes, spinach, and cabbage. Cooked cabbage is my favorite! I always wonder why I never make it at home.

Freshly made yogurt. We literally bought this interesting liquid directly from the maker. Tastes like greek yogurt plain. However, add a large amount of granola and a banana and I forget the texture.

Redd's Beer. Tastes like flat Sprite and apple juice. Nothing compared to a Woodchuck, but it will do.

Ahh, Safari Beer. This is where it is at.

Between reading the book, Insurgent by Veronica Roth, and lunch with the group at the campus cafeteria, I successfully accomplished the cinnamon rolls! Patrick helped make the instant African coffee used in the icing and they were complete! Definitely a different taste due to the flour, butter, and coffee, nonetheless they taste, smell, and fill our tummies like a cinnamon roll!

Butter and Sugar!

Lathering it up!

Icing! Vanilla with coffee since we couldn't find maple.

Turned out smaller than normal, no worries though!

Happy lady!

Meet Claire! She was a happy lady too! Pretty sure we all will finish these by tonight.... and there are only five of us.

Next Friday I will definitely have more of a variety of foodie description and pictures!

Have a great weekend! We are spending ours at the Mikumi National Park for a Safari and hopefully hitting the pool at the Morogoro Hotel! We are supposed to hike up one of the mountains too, but that may have to wait for next weekend.

Currently, we are celebrating our fourth year of marriage. When I married Patrick, I knew it was going to be a roller coaster of an adventure. However, little did I know, we would spend more time on a plane than in our home. We are beyond excited to share our adventures of soil science, developing countries, our move up north, teaching endeavors, special education, training for our runs and tid bits of our life. Here is our stories of a PhD student and teacher attempting to stay above average, so hang with us!
