Foodie has a new cooker :-). Are you like me who loves loves new stuff, I get excited like a little child when new stuff comes in so I just had to share, maybe my pal Mona would relate. She is one of those people who will come “help” you unpack your stuff when you come from Nairobi, when I had just met her I used to think “wow what a helpful friend” only to later realise its her fetish for new stuff that actually made her help one unpack.

Anyway, I digress.

One of the things I really hated about my Kakuma kitchen at first was cooking with a Meko ( this is a 6kg gas cylinder with a burner) It would take me hours to make a complete meal as I could only make one dish at a time, then I Upgraded to a two burner stove


I was pretty happy but I always wished I could get the four burner but at that time the only available ones were the ones that came with a grill and oven and it was not practical to carry one to Kakuma( although I am still debating on this). So in April when I walked into a Nakumatt Supermarket wanting to buy a “prettier” two burner and saw a four burner table top stove, I was over the moon ( the things that excite you when your from the desert!!!) but unfortunately I did not have the baggage allowance to buy it so I left it and sent my gal Liz for it. The day she arrived I COULD NOT WAIT. I literally run out of my office into her house to get it so that I could go set it up and just look at it 🙂 heheheh . So now I am almost where I want to be all that’s missing is a cooker with an oven but my microwave plays that role for now. For now I will enjoy the four burner and for all of you with two burners its time for an upgrage!
