CHRISTMAS - African man's day off; Alcohol and Suya

>> Dec 25, 2011

And that's Why there's a Christmas day  
In my mind this is the memory i have of men in the streets; Bachelors or married men in Cameroon, Alcohol and beef is like fuel to the bones (maybe some other things lol).


CHRISTMA - The Lion's Share

M    is For the Manger where he lay
A     is All it stands for 
A dinner table in the resturant 

Artist: Mckeough Rita

I really like Art (i paint freelance once in a while, its like therapy to me) and i saw this at my school's art gallery. It's a comic restaurant called the lion's share and everything in it is alive. Its kinda hard to explain, everything in the restaurant is electrified. I tried to add captions but it sort of distorts the order of the pictures. So from the left :
-Restaurant table with food on it
-Milk, a hot dog and eggs. Everything is plastic but it looks real, the milk in the glass seems to be in motion, like somebody aggressively put it down.
-The kitchen; where the magic happens. There's a fake hen on the table too; she lays all the eggs
-The next four are the kitchen shots
-The table again
-The hot dog tank; live dogs with poop (Angeo's spelling) lol,. You choose your hot dog and get it cooked.
-A view of the restaurant, check out the furniture bottoms
-The Specials board, once you walk in that's what you see
-The milk jar is like a fish tank, and when you move closer it's boiling
-Wall decor (Talking carrots)
-I :)
-The Artist.


CHRIST - Lasagna

S     is for the Star that shone so bright
T     is for Three wise men, they who traveled far
You need to be a meat lover and a cheese lover to like this; IMO. Twas my first time making it and lets just say it tasted like i had been there done that, lol. I will put up my recipe. I can't say this is Cameroon related at all, finding it hard to type something about this dish because the picture is so self explanatory. lol. Enjoy.


CHRI-- Dodo Luv & a picture i like

R    means our Redeemer
I     means Israel
 Dodo is like a lady's little Black dress, it never gets old and it works whenever you don't know what to wear but still want to stop the show. 

I just like this picture.... forget what i said not that it was a lie. :) IDM {I didn't make it}


CH - 'Cumen boiled rice, Beef Stew and Naan Bread'

C     is for the Christ child, born upon this day
H    for Herald angels in the Night

Boiled rice with Cumin. Cumin is a spiced a discovered through a hair client and it just gives the rice a different flavor. She made a big deal about it but quit frankly i didn't see the huge difference. It's what i will call a desperate measure for variety lol. Try it though, maybe it's just me. The Stew is just beef stew but i let it simmer for long after it was ready (to kind of over cook the beef). The Naan bread was store bought  and i toasted it in the oven, but it goes back to Cameroonians and Bread. There's just something about that... :)... Sorry for the late updates guys; what can i say its Christmass. 

Cumin Spice to the left



Updates to the upcoming posts will be done later. Enjoy your Xmas.


Fettuccine, Steak stripes & garlic teriyaki sauce.

 20th December 2011----> 2012 IS TIME TO BE ANYTHING YOU DESIRE.  
 The theme to end tonight is : 
"What's Love got to do with it? :)"
The title is self explanatory, good quick meal!


Cassava & Ox Tail

A quote from a life caoch : 
"Fill yourself up, don't be the one with the cup. Be the one with the pitcher"

Ox Tail, also known as the tail of Cattle (Wickiiii haha), and oven roasted cassava (Cassava is what is used to make Garri, water fufu, and myondo. I think it is fermented at different levels for each. I know for garri it is dried at some point, the other two= fermentation. Click on the words to see what i am talking about :).
