Today, I'm thinking of African food... West African food and although we've eaten more Ghanaian dishes than from other West African countries, there are many regional similarities (and distinctness as well). John is still getting to know and love Nigerian food too as his work involves developing and managing Bible translation projects in Nigeria requires frequent trips there.
Some of you have been able to enjoy a few tastes of Ghanaian cooking, when we have made groundnut soup with rice balls. Yummy right?
|During one of our Discovery orientations in Ghana, we encourage our interns to discover new foods and we lead by example. Shevawn discovers eba (for the first time) with (one of her favorites) egusi stew!|
|During the same orientation, John encourages a Discoverer to enjoy a new taste to both: ogbono soup! |
|I've also heard this called Rice and Stew when served without the Black-eyed peas |
and sometimes the name is shortened even more to "Stew" (still served with rice)
