I’ve finally remembered to upload these — first, a picture of my semi-successful yoghurt with my very successful sour cherry compote and the crumbled Wheatabix (which tastes a lot like cardboard if you eat it on its own, but is pretty good either in yoghurt or with lots of sugar).

And also, to show you what can be done when Danny is willing to schmooze the guys who run the cafeteria, here’s a picture of the best dinner we’ve cooked so far here. It’s some steak and shrimp, whole wheat coucous with a sort of a gremolata of cilantro, lemon, and garlic, and grilled squash and mushrooms. That is not normally how we eat here, but it was a most welcome change of pace! We have a small charcoal grill that lives on our concrete box (aka the “balcony”) that we fire up every now and then. We usually use it on our “date night” since that’s the one night of the week that we can count on going home at a reasonable hour like 8 and not having to go back to work. A little sad that we have to have a date night in order to do that since we don’t have children yet and that’s usually something you do when you have to have a babysitter, but it’s the only way I can get out of work before 10 or 11 at night.
