It is Valentine’s Day in the bush and although there may not be any fancy restaurants, shops to buy gifts, or boxes of chocolates around (sigh) there are still plenty of ways to make it special.
Amongst the sparse and random assortment of kitchen tools there is, believe it or not, a heart shaped muffin pan. So, for breakfast I made banana, coconut muffins with strawberry jam in the center…a bleeding heart of sorts :)
Alastair left cut-out paper hearts on my chair…
and gave me fresh picked roses.
Love is in the air, even in the bush of Sierra Leone…and there may be a heart-shaped pizza and chocolate cake in the works ;)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
