Mrs. Peep says I must be good or else. I am perplexed (and not just because I have a brain the size of a walnut, although granted, that may be a factor). Does she mean good behaviour-wise or good tasty-wise? This is not a rhetorical question. The distinction is quite important to me, as I caught her reading the following from The Congo Cookbook:
All over Central Africa, koko is cut into thin strips before being cooked. This is usually accomplished by rolling it, like cigars, and then using a very sharp knife to shave the end into thin strips. Koko is available already-cut and ready-to-cook in many Central African markets. The women selling it cut it fresh throughout the day. The more thinly cut the koko is, the higher it can be piled -- a tall pile of koko is definitely a selling point. Cutting the koko into such thin strips probably makes it easier to cook.I'm more than a bit concerned, so if you don't hear hide nor hair of me in the next day or so, blame Blogspot or send in the troops!
