I am writing this post with faith, believing there is an end to the current pandemic and people will want to go out after it is all over. For my second dine out of the year, before social distancing was required in Nigeria, I decided to go to Zolene Restaurant in Ikoyi. I got invited to their menu tasting. Unlike Eko Hotel, I’ve eaten in Zolene before and the experience was great but I notice they totally took off old options from their new menu and that broke my heart.
I recently went on a mixed pepper stir fry craze and I’m dragging you into it. I made it with baked chicken paired with grilled yam, rice and beans, rice and plantain. The focus will be on the stir fry with short notes on each of the accompaniment.
Fun Fact – Bell peppers have more vitamin C than oranges, so this recipe is bursting with loads of vitamin C.
A society like ours make seeing households with 7 children and above as the norm. Especially if the family in question wanted a particular gender which in most cases are male children, the number of children gotten in their quest is excused because they finally got their dream. I mostly don’t have an issue with that. What I find problematic is that doing this while in poverty with the excuse that the children will become rich or that God will take care of them, so the parents drop children like raindrops on a rainy day waiting for the children to grow up and lift them out of poverty. However, we see thousands of these children every day, prancing the streets, missing the fundamental requirements of a child.
I love how the beginning of the year gives you the idea of a fresh start, the opportunity to re-strategize and reach your goals. I adore beginnings, birthdays more than new years because of how personal it is but it’s hard not to get caught up in the new year bubble. This post is to share my insights on how to have a rewarding year, so we don’t end up feeling lost when it’s time to reflect on the year.
I typically don’t like eating out, I’d rather make my food myself than be disappointed by unpleasant food. Anyway, a while ago, I decided to eat out at the Eko Hotel and Suites, and it was wonderful! So, I want to share my experience and I’m considering visiting another place soon. I’ll be reviewing the food, ambience, and service.

The food section of this blog is not reflective of how much I love beans. So to make up for that, I’ll be sharing a simple beans and yam porridge recipe you can use to make eating beans healthier and more delicious.
Sharing this is going to be giving an insight into my previous struggle but I need to, to glorify the work of God in my life. Anyone who has a deadly incurable disease knows how close to death it makes you feel. You are torn between living wild and scratching off items your bucket list, to preserving your life as much as you can. Brace yourself, this is going to be longer than my typical posts. “Ephesians 2 vs 8 – 9.”
