Food for the Week

Rice and chicken, Stew and Efo Riro

Efo Riro

Fried rice + Chicken


Sorry the pictures kinda suck this week! I was tired when I was done!

Hello everyone! I hope everybody's weekend was amazing. I had a VERY busy weekend albiet a little lazy at the same time. On Sunday night however I decided to cook my meal for the week in an effort to save time and actually eat food.(which BTW is my biggest problem-I don't eat enough!!!) My schedule during the week can be really crazy, and as the summer months draw nearer and the appeal to workout is even higher, I find myself going straight to bed(read twitter) by the time I get home after 7pm. I decided to cook enough for the week, and refrigerate it and hopefully this would allow me to make better and healthier eating choices. So I cooked Fried rice, stew and efo. I am sure somwhere during the week, I would make alferdo pasta or lasagne or even steak, but these are staples that can take me a long way for the week. Everyone should try it...I did this in about 2 and a half hrs. an voila I am set for the week. Have a blessed one!

2cups rice
5 chicken drumsticks
Frozen Mixed veggies(corn, peas, carrots, peppers,)
Chopped Onions
Oil to fry.

Boil rice in water and a pinch of salt till it is soft.
Boil chicken with the spices till it is cooked and put in the oven to grill. about 300c for 30mins
In a frying pan, Add 3 table spoons of oil, When hot, add chopped onions, frozen veggies and spices.
Allow to fry for 5mins or until onions are sauteed.
Add rice stir till the rice is thorougly mixed with the sauce.

Do this over and over till the rice is done. Depending on how big your pan is and how much you make.

remove chicken from oven and voila we have fried rice and chicken..:)


Ingredients. ...

Spinach/Clean and cut.
Beef (Boiled) Save stock.
Dried fish
Tomato sauce
Fresh tomato
Onion powder
Crushed red pepper
Minced Garlic
Palm oil

Saute onion, tomato and garlic in palm oil
Add tomato sauce and let simmer for 3-5 mins.
Add boiled meat, stock fish, dried fish
Add beef stock (Very little, cos spinach produces water)
Add spinach
Add all seasoning.(maggi, adobo...whatever you like)
Simmer and cook down till there's little or no liquid left.

Very easy to make...make sure the heat is on low the entire time..

Hugs and Kisses

PS: I'd like the Efo riro recipe too...I want to know if you do it any different from how I prepare mine so I can take notes :)

MissUndercover- I gatchu babes

GNG- I'll send it to you tonight!. thanx babes!

B-Sent it to you babes. Let me know how it turns out! They key to getting the right texture is to make sure you dont add any water, until afetr you add everything and you see it is needed, becuase spinach produces water when steamed.

Jaycee- Aww thank you!!! I am very particular with pictures.. So when I saw the bowls werent properlly cleaned I was kinda dissapointed..:( Its the perfectionist in me. I'll email you the recipe. Let me know..xx!

Thanx guys!
