I made this wonderful pot of Ogbono soup with bitterleaf over the weekend and couldnt help but cheat on monday. Yes, I confess I broke my no carbs rule and perched on hubby's meal. You know how you make only one cup of cornmeal or semolina cos you know you arent supposed to be eating any carbs but still put some water on the cooker for some more semolina just in case when serving ur man cos you know in u r heart that you're going to perch a little on his meal and dont want him complaining his meal is too small. Thats what happened on Monday. The soup was super if I may blow my own trumpet. Wish I had taken a picture of it to take its pride of place on my page.
Attempted a little spot of catering practicals also and the meals came out OK. Hubby said it was nice and asked for more. I remember when in university my younger sis used to churn out wonderful pots of fried rice and no matter how she described how she made it, mine never ever came out tasting as nice as hers or even looking as good either. Making Fried Rice hasnt been one of my strongest points but I decided to brave it and try one last time in very small quantities. My friend was around and I asked her if she had any idea how to make it but she didnt and we decided to both brave it, compare notes and experiment. In the end, it was delicious!!!! I now know how to make fingerlicking fried rice like my sisters!! I think previously I was using too much curry and cooking oil. Couldnt help doing a little jiggly dance in the kitchen when I saw my end result.
I'm off to catch up on whats been happening in blogville while I've been on hiatus. P.S: Finally figured out the counter and clock thingy. Hooraayyyy!!!!
This article seems to be very popular on the BBC News Website and apparently is the most emailed article but it has brought back a lot of fond memories for me and had me salivating seriously. Ooooohhhhh cant wait to get to Abuja and visit all the joints there and tuck in for my special fix of 'gearbox', 'kickstarter' 'headlights'. Clapping my hands and doing a jiggly dance in my chair. LOL!!!
