How are we?
Am so happy, cos am having plenty of fun. Remember I talked about taking a break? Yes ooooo! It's been 10 days of no stress, I sure needed the brake.
I wasn't sure what to write about. Some topics were popping in my head but they just didn't seem right.
I believe God answers prayers because He saw in my heart that I searched for a write up, then gbam!!! I saw it!
This is the gist, I was standing at the bus stop when something caught my attention. Some guy was cutting watermelon in bits and then he poured it into his bowl of rice, stirred it and food was ready. I was still pondering on that scene when his Friend or brother brought another plate of food, this one was rice, yam and beans. Am like "what is it with these strange food combinations?"
I stylishly held my phone above him and took the shoot:
So what's for Grub?
The importance of good food cannot be over emphasized. A Lot of us have favourites but I don't, I love good food.
However, there are sometimes when, maybe out of lack or hunger, we create strange food combinations. Don't get me wrong, cooking in it self is a creative art but when we come up with weird combinations then...I rest my case.
These are a list of some I could gather.
1. Rice and Yam and stew.
2. Semo, Eba and Egusi Soup
3. Eba and beans
4. Noodles and bread
5. Bread and pap
6. Bread and coconut
7. Yam, Eba and Vegetable soup.
8. Beans, Boiled eggs, fish and bread.
If you notice, these combinations are imbalance.
Rice and Yam??? Noodles and Bread??? Semo and Eba???
Ah ah! Hunger is not a good thing.
But then, people say they taste great!
Nos, 5 and 6 I can testify that they taste nice.
My sister suggested No 4, that was so funny. I had a good laugh but she said said it tastes good. Imagine stuffing bread with noodles and eating the combo. Whoever thought of that? And when did noodles become bread spread?
I'll link this here, everything you see around you has an origin. Someone some where thought about it, carried out the research, spent time and energy till it was created. Lets think about it.
- Air planes
- Fashion, trends.
- Food recipes
Even other things like;
- Tooth brushes
- Skin care products
It's beautiful! The human mind. Our ideas, imaginations. It's beautiful!
Utilise your mind's capacity. All you need is you! If you can think it, you can do it.
Which of the above food list have you tasted, please be honest ooo! Or maybe you have other suggestions.
Food is good, but good food is the best.
Stay healthy guys... Stay inspired...
Much love, MariamOre.
