Bruschetta + Jollof Rice

Hey guys I just want to use this opportunity to say A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me. I won the BEST FOOD BLOG during the Nigerian Blog awards and I am very very very grateful to everyone to be recognized by my peers. It is really funny how this blog started as a hobby but by the grace of God it will be going somewhere BIGGER IJN!.

Anyway this week I made Bruschetta as an appetizer for dinner I had with some of my friends. It was really good and it is also really simple.

..and for the main course we had Jollof rice with chicken. Nothing special because I was soooooo tired after a long day at the beach/water park. Regular Saturday meal!

P.s Can you tell I am reallllly tired!!!!!! Off to the movies..#sigh!

I am dedicating this song to my daddy. I am daddy's baby and God knows without him I would not be half the woman I am today. Everyday I thank God for him and my Mum and I cannot wait to start making money so i can spoil the both of them! HAPPY FATHERS DAY DADDY! I'll upload the Mp3 of this song later. xx!

by Beyonce

I remember
When you used to take me on a bike ride every day on the bayou
(Remember that? We were inseparable?)
And I remember when you could do no wrong
You come home from work
And I jump in your arms when I saw you
(I was so excited)
I was so happy
(So happy to see you so happy to see you)
To see you

Because you loved me
I overcome
And I’m so proud of what you’ve become
You’ve given me such security
No matter what mistakes I make you’re there for me
You cure my disappointments and u heal my pain
You understood my biz and you protected me
I treasure every year in place a comemory
And thats why I want my unborn son
To be like my daddy
I want my husband to be like my daddy
There is no one else like my daddy
And I thank you for lovin me
(daddy daddy daddy)

I still remember the expression your face when you found out
I’d been on a date and had a boyfriend
(my first boyfriend, you shoulda seen your face)
I still remember I called you cryin
cuz of my tattoo coulda said “Beyonc© I told Ya”
So instead you said you’d get one too
(You and my momma said yall’d get one just like mine)
Words cant express my boundless gratitude for you
I appreciate what you do oh
You’ve given me tight security
No matter what mistakes I know you’re there for me
Cute my disappointments and heal my pain
You understood by biz and you protected me
I treasure every extraordinary memory
that’s why

I want my unborn son
To be like my daddy
I want my husband to be like my daddy
There is no one else like my daddy
And I thank you (thank you) for lovin me

Even if a man broke my heart today
No matter how much pain I’m in I would be ok
Cuz I got a man in my life that can’t be replaced
His love is unconditional
It won’t go away
And I know I’m lucky (lucky)
Know it aint easy
Men? who take care of their responsibilities
Love is overwhelming??
Stop a tear from falling
I love you so much daddy

Thank you
You’ve done so much for me
I love you,

I’m so emotional daddy
Every time I think of you
I get emotional daddy
Every time I think of you
There is no one else like my daddy
No one will replace my daddy
Daddy daddy daddy daddy

Hugs and kisses

Apple Pie A'la Mode

Hello everybody, I hope you are all having a splendid Sunday! My church to day was just amazing. We had anointing service and wow, wow, wow, wow is really all I can say at this point! I needed direction last week and after today's service, I can happily say I know everything would work out and God name alone would be glorified. I like the direction God has shown me and I am just working towards the end goal. It would definitely not be easy, but with God by my side....... Ok enough preaching...LOL!

So as we all know, this week was the voting week for Nigerian blog awards, most of my friends wanted me to 'bribe' them with home made cookies, dinners, macarons, you name it, I was asked to make it. LOL. So a few friends came over on Saturday night, I made apple pie for the fist time ever, and we had it with Ice-Cream and strawberries!!! YUM!! I also made macaroons but I was not able to take a picture it was DEVOURED!

MY TASTERS L-R ME-CICI-VANCHI-AIMIZZY-DAMS..:)(Pardon the way I look in this pic! Choi! Babes were tired!)


Apple pie a'la Mode..:D

You would think after all that fattening food, I would not eat for the rest of the week and just umm drink water, but NOPE! I made Afang soup and pounded yam when I got back from church, I took it back to my mother land men! I had missed this soup. The igbo's call it Okazi.

...and that is it! I hope with this post, I have been able to convince you and not confuse you to VOTE FOR ME! There are a few hours left to vote! so click HERE and VOTE Ms.O's kitchen for BEST FOOD BLOG!


Hugs n Kisses
Have a Blessed week.
