With that in mind, I am going to start taking random pictures throughout the week and share some of them on Wednesdays.
I figured this'll just be an "dump" post where I dump pictures of food and other things I find interesting.
Since I already post DIY items on Mondays and Foolery on Fridays, I figured Photo Dump Wednesday (PDW) is a way to balance things out :-).
I have also created a page to post some of my "food" pics.
With that in mind, here's my first PDW post. Enjoy!
|I did a lot of cooking this weekend. I have been pinning Nigerian foods I like so I wanted to make some of them.|
I made some akara (fried bean fritters) on Saturday morning.
|They were so yummy, J and JOE couldn't stop eating them!|
|Last week, I made some slow cooked chicken enchilada. Its basically a whole chicken thrown in a slow cooker with corn, roasted diced tomatoes, peppers and spices to taste. It was VERY yummy! This recipe I got from Sparkpeople.|
|I visited the African market last week and picked up a tuber of yam. I know people refer to sweet potatoes as yams but they are not really from the yam family. These are the real yams. If you don't believe me, Google it :-).|
|Cut up and almost ready to go.|
|Ready to be soaked in salt water.|
|After cutting and washing, I let them soak in salt water for about 6-hours.|
|In the deep fryer they went.|
|I also made some spicy beef stew.|
|Can you tell I love my slow cooker?|
|Yam fries are done.|
|And here's what's for dinner. YUM!!!|
|The elixir for every mom out there. Early morning coffee! I painted that cup back when J and I used to go pottery painting.|
|Trying to get in more fruits so I pick up a bag of these whenever we go grocery shopping.|
Until next week, buon appetito!
