    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

‘Thingz & Maputi’ – Zimbabwean snacks \_(^^)_/

Chances are you do not know what these are, but might have seen related snacks or heard of similar products…perhaps.

To demystify the puzzle, Thingz and maputi are my favorite snacks from Zimbabwe. One of the Zimbabwean students at CSS went home and brought these and more! I have come across some snacks here that resemble Thingz so I won’t explain much on those. Maputi are made from corn and prepard in the same way -sort of- as popcorn. For best results, I always add peanuts (roasted)!! When you are so far away from home, you get to miss home food more and will delight the day you get even some food you didn’t think of as much from home! I am thankful for the chance to re-connect with some of my favorite home snacks. I look forward to going back home!!
