My Greatest Moment

A little while ago I was exploring Maroua.  Someone told me of a tiny shop that sold some things imported from France.  I'm sure you can imagine what I was hoping for... and I found it!  CHEESE.  And not that silly laughing cow crap that tastes sorta but not quite like creme cheese.  Now they only had two kinds, but one of them was GOUDA (the other was a brie sort of something).  I may have spent what I make in a day and what some people here make in a week (or year, depending), but I bought myself some damn cheese.

What did I do with that cheese?  Anyone who has had the luxury of spending a late night after a few rounds with me knows that my favorite thing to make in the world is grilled cheese.  Or a quesadilla, same thing.

Yes, that is mayo.  If you aren't using mayo, you are doing it wrong.
Just a couple of other ingredients that are relatively easy to come by and we were off to a good start.

You can almost smell it.
Baguettes are not ideal for this sort of work, but beggars can't be choosers as the saying goes.

Look at how happy I am!
And that, ladies and gentlemen, was my finest moment yet in this lovely country of Cameroon.  I just felt that I needed to share.
