I’ve been a bad girl, I know. I have neglected you for about two months now. I’ve been barely there, barely showing you any attention, almost completely abandoning my responsibilities to you, your kitchens and your stomachs. I know it’s inexcusable I’m really sorry hope you did not feel like I did not love you coz you guys are my foodie world. I’ve been busy trying to move.
Well you see, I have been living in Kakuma for over 2 ½ years now. It has been such a great experience, so different from the city and so different from the rural areas we know off. Its smack in the middle of nowhere but I loved it and enjoyed it. It did get lonely sometimes and boring but I found solace in my cooking and sometimes gardening. I eventually started this blog in December 2011 after a year of contemplating the idea and it has brought me so much satisfaction. And all of you are such a blessing to my life because I never thought I would actually have an audience.
I’m being too mushy let me get on with the news. As of mid April 2013 Foodie in the desert is now being written from Nairobi. Yes I will keep the name Foodie in the DESERT because the desert not only symbolizes Kakuma but also the ability for one to cook great food with minimal resources. I hope you will still enjoy my posts, I will also do restaurant reviews now that I will be around and hopefully bring you more exciting and informative segments on places to get ingredients, cheapest places to buy stuff, reviews on chefs etc. This should be an exciting journey hope you will all still be around for support and do tell your friends.
Today’s recipe is an interesting one its chilli cooked with baked beans. It really yummy and the mixture of textures , I served it with chapo but think it could also be great with rice. HAPPY COOKING!!!
