I’ve gotten a great start on my packing. I just got organized today, but have yet to put an article of clothing in a suitcase. But the hard part is over. International travel is a very fun headache!
Seeing as this is a food blog, here are the foods I have packed. I do not intend to live off of American packaged foods while in Africa and hope to fully enjoy the local cuisine, but I do have 48-72 hours of travel (including two 9 hour flights) on both ends of my trip and don’t know where, when or how I’ll eat while traveling. Better to be prepared. I won those Rokit fuel packets from Leading Lady Lis’s site and can’t wait to see what they’re like. They are made of cereal grains, seeds + nuts and are about 350 calories per packet. “Just add cold liquid.”
We had planned to have an Indian-inspired lentil dinner tonight with sauteed kale, but we changed the menu to something much easier, esp. since we still had a piece of leftover salmon in the fridge.
Salmon Focaccia Sandwiches
Turned the kale into chips
And cracked open this amazingly juicy ripe cantaloupe.
I didn’t have a snack this afternoon – lunch was late and I was too busy to stop for one. I got hungry around 6:00 but we didn’t eat until 8:00!
