The soysages turned out more like exploding globs of beans and vegetables, so they wound up getting baked in a pan, so it was more like Soy and Stuff Casserole, aka Veggie Slop, a longtime menu staple in our household.

The evening's more popular dish was the chocolate chip cookies from a mix my mom sent (she is feeding us from afar). I was saving them for a "special occasion," which I found last night: The oven was already on!

You can't buy chocolate chips in Zambia, so chocolate chip cookies are a rare treat. Fresh-from-the-oven, homemade-tasting chocolate chip cookies are a religious experience.
