…. what's next on my random mind?….

blues blues blues

Hello!!

How is everyone doing? Yes I know I have been unusually quiet and yes I am still blaming my lack of internet in my flat, exams and my new priority but hey… My internet router got delivered yesterday but I wasn’t home so I shall be picking it up on Thursday and all should be well with the world again. Just that I am off to Edinburgh again on easter Monday for another round of exam a week after. It is well… The lord is my strength.

So what has everyone been up to? Any plans for the summer? Any holidays springing up anywhere? I need a holiday o! As in seriously, my holiday to naija has evaporated. I need something fresh! I initially wanted to go to the states to visit my aunt and my lil cousin is who is now 2+! I mean the last time I saw her, shehad no teeth, couldn’t talk or walk and now she has it all! I bet she doesn’t remember me. I need to go and show face again. Slight problem is, my american visa has expired and I haven’t had time to re-apply, so who knows? Maybe after this exam is done I will be able to reapply and go before my next stint in Edinburgh in July. Imagine I will be up there again July – September! God is my strength! Lol I pretty much do not have a summer this year. At least all things going well, after september I should have 1 more exam left and that would be the end of me blogging about exams! Lol aren’t you pleased?

So my come dine with me was on Saturday!!!! It was a lot of stress, as in never again am I cooking or making a 3 course meal for 9 people! To think I invited 14 people and 5 couldn’t come. Imagine if they came?! That would have been crazy. Like most of you know, CDWM was planned last year… and it was a good way for my friends to meet DT too. The run up to the day I had mixed feelings about, partly excited and partly nervous as to how the whole day would go. Turned out I had nothing to worry about. I made the starter we learnt in cooking class, with some help from DT lol he was in charge of the designing of the pastry and I was in charge of baking and filling it. Loads of team effort which eased the stress of the day.

So my menu was:

Starter

Stuff tart with caramelised red and yellow peppers topped with pancetta

Main course

Asaro (yam pottage) with stewed roasted lamb

Dessert

Lemon cheesecake with mixed berries sauce

I had to get some nigerian dish in there somehow. I must say I didn’t come up with the idea but it worked. Everything tasted fabulous but my friends loved the cheese cake best! For my first attempt I guess that is my proudest achievement food-wise. The whole evening was worth it. We rounded up the day by playing a game called ‘taboo’ which was fun too. I will put up the pictures soon.

Today is my last day in the office till I go off on study leave. Bitter-sweet… but hey, I have an exam to pass. We’ll see how that goes. The aim for the rest of the week and easter holiday is to study like no man’s business. I hope I actually get to do that.

Till I blog again, have a fabulous week and a great easter. Xxx

    • heheheh thank you!!! definitely good company. Funny thing is i love yam but i don’t eat it ofte enough. I love it most when it is fried dry and seasoned with salt, pepper, maggi and blended crayfish!
