I'm Backkkkkkkkkkk

Hello loves!!!

I am so sorry for the impromptu hiatus I took from this blog. So many people emailed, commented on my other blog, DM-ed and tried to contact me to see if all was well.Yes all is well. You see it is summer and once it is warm outside I cant seem to seat down in one place. So almost every weekend ( which is normally when I cook for this blog) I traveled or was at one engagement or the other. Alas, summer is almost over, I am rounding up this season(still got like 2 trips)and preparing for school, work and the dreaded winter time!

Anyways back to regular scheduled programming. Over the summer fruits seem to be in abundance in this country for a good price too. I always buy strawberries, kiwis, mangoes, banana's etc in large amounts and when I cannot finish them before they go bad, I make a lot of smoothies. To make any smoothie, just cut up the fruits, add some yogurt (preferably vanilla) add some ice and blend and viola!!! You have a refreshing summer drink.

This one right here is Kiwi and banana! It was so tasty. I actually used vanilla ice cream, because I was out of yogurt.

I also made lasagna over the weekend for a friend of mine that was visiting. We ate lasagna, had ice cream and watched girlie movies...:) GREAT TIMES! The recipe for lasagna is below.

All cut up...Yummmmmmm.....sooooooo unhealthy!

-One pack oven ready lasagna pasta
-Ground beef
-ragu or pasta sauce
-red peppers, onions. Or other veggies(Frozen mixed veggies)
-vegetable oil
-Cottage cheese
-Mozerella cheese
-Spices(salt, maggai, pepper,curry,etc)

For sauce.
In a clean pot put 3 tablespoons of oil(allow to get hot add ground beef and fry. In another pot, add chopped onions, and peppers or other veggies. fry for 5 mins or till onions are sautéed. Add salt, Maggie, curry(whatever spices you use). Then add ragu sauce and let it is boil for 10mins on medium heat. Add cooked ground beef to sauce and let it cook for 10mins.

Lasagna- (if they are not oven ready, you can boil them till it is soft first)

Place one lasagna in pan add sauce on top. Add cottage cheese, mozerella cheese and Repeat layer until ingredients are done. Preheat oven to 350 and place in oven for 30-35mins (but if u boil it, it should be ready in 15-20mins). and voila we have Lasagna!

Well I am back guys! I promise never to disappear without warning again....Coming up on the blog are ravioli, more summer smoothies, ekpangukwuo, banga soup, meat pie, puff puff and more!!!!
