Sunday Stamps #53

Theme for this week: Food. The raw materials (fruits, vegetables, grains etc.) or the finished products. What were you able to find?


I have: some stamps from Kenya, with the coconut, and groundnuts, which are also known as peanuts.

These stamps came from a student, who sent a postcard to our department when she was in Kenya on a safari.  Someday I may go on safari too!
Please share your stamps and visit some other blogs and enjoy Sunday Stamps.

                            


Theme next week:  Standard Issues.  Let's look at the  everyday stamps of our country and find something new to say about them.

I have a great recipe for groundnut stew that I haven't made in a long time... thanks for the reminder! Surprisingly, I always think of it as a perfect warming winter dish though it comes from Africa.

Must be nice to have fresh coconut, although I think I would prefer the safari:-) I always find it fascinating how coconuts spread by floating on sea currents.

I remember the groundnut sandal in Afirca in the 1950s - a British Government scheme that failed. Don't think it was in Kenya though.

Food was kind of tricky to find, I found some on African stamps more so than European.

We are what we eat? You like nuts? Working for peanuts...

I lived in Africa for my young childhood and groundnuts are part of my memories. Roasted in their shells, yum!
