Meat-Pie + Pasta Galore!

I had been craving meat pie for a while now and not the #abaversion Jamaican patties(LOL) but real Nigerian-kinda-meat pies. Well this weekend I called my favorite cookbook aka my mother and asked for a recipe. I also asked a few friends and got to work. The dough turned out amazing! the sauce part is the east part for me. For a first timer I guess being around the kitchen I knew the proper consistency and it turned out well overall. Next time I would have to work on the aesthetics though... I wish they looked as good as they taste.

I eat a lot of pasta because not only are they the fastest thing I make, they are also very easy and taste great. Seen as they are carbs, I am trying to limit my pasta intake therefore I am trying whole wheat pasta and other healthier choices instead and so far so good. Here are two different outcomes from this week.

I call this "Jollof Pasta"-- its just like making jollof rice instead you use pasta and add some ground beef...:)

OMG..I was just thinking of meat pie and how I haven't had one in a long time!

I've just been introduced to this jallof pasta, my dad just got back to the states and made a biggg batch. It was definitely tasty but he didn't know what it was called. Now I know, i will be emailing you for these recipes!!

Yummy! Now meatpie is something I can make...not sure if it's Naija style (my mom likes it so I think I'm doing something right!).

Nice camera work too, lady!
