My friend’s husband will be 30 tomorrow and in classic 9ja style, there will be a big shindig as it is a big milestone. No one parties like Nigerians, you guys sure know that. As usual, I have been roped into cooking, so I’ll be starting up really early and here is what is on the menu
- Jollof rice
- Fried rice
- Assorted meat peppersoup
- Puff Puff
- Grilled meats and chicken tossed in tomato sauce
- Egusi soup and Efo riro
Classic staples of any 9ja party. I may throw a few surprises in, but until I get there and see what she has in the freezer and store, I don’t know yet. So, be expecting me to write about my recipes, hints and tips to make party food extra special, and also ideas on party planning to ensure that you serve delicious food and also have time to enjoy your party and be a good host.
##### So, the party is over and I am totally exhausted. I will blog about the dishes we cooked, including peppered gizzard and dodo (fried plantain) gizzard. I am pleased to report, even though a little mortified that one of the guests announced loudly to his mum in the presence of everyone “no offence mummy, but this is the best peppersoup that I have ever tasted, and he went ahead to ask for seconds” Lol. Children don’t have any filter – even though he should be around 10 0r 12 years old and should know better. Lol….
So, stay tuned for all the recipes, hints and tips and more.
