Today I Baked

Today I baked.

From scratch!

Perty, huh?

Yeah, I thought so too.

Baking from scratch is literally just about an everyday thing for me in Africa. Want burittos? No packaged tortillas. I mix, roll and dry fry my own. Want pizza? No packets. I make my own crust. Want muffins? No box mixes my friends. All from scratch. Want cake? Break out the cookbook. No funfetti folks.

I could go on and on.

And on.

And on.

But I think you get the idea.

However, for some reason baking from scratch is not really a part of my life in this country. At least not when we're here 'temporarily' (what does that mean, exactly, at this point?!... still waiting on visas. Boo.)


It's Lemon Meringue, if you care, and I'm about to go eat it now.
