GARDEN EGG- NJAKATU STEW




Back home in Africa, there are some things no one tells you about America. For example, no one tells you that you could find Garden Eggs in the market. Imagine my joy when I stumbled on them at the farmers' market!

THIS IS INDEED A SEPTEMBER TO REMEMBER



Hello my loves,

I have missed blogging for the past few days. I have been working to upgrade my blog and so far, I am happy with the results. Check out my new custom header and my "About Me" image in the side bar. Your feedback in the comments section or by e-mail is most welcome.

I have also set up social media icons so you can follow me on my various social media handles. Please check them out and click. Thank you!

September is the ninth month of the year. Symbolically, nine is the month of delivery. A baby is born in the ninth month. To me this is very symbolic to my writing ministry. This September symbolises the birth of my new blog page, it symbolises fruitfulness as a writer. Hope your ninth moth births something beautiful for you.

Yes, I'm back. I'll keep telling those phenomenal stories. Thanks in advance for reading.

Happy new month!

A Word for You

Dear blog reader,

You must have noticed that I haven't posted in the past few days. This is because I'm upgrading my blog. If you log in and find the blog looking strange, know it is because I am working on it. As soon as I am done, I will resume posting. More juicy stories are waiting to be unleashed.

Hope your week is moving on smoothly. God bless you!!!

Tasting Child Birth for the First Time

Fresh from the womb

There were three of us in the rustic labour room. The bed at one end of the room was occupied by a lady whose own meaning of labour seemed to have changed to leisure. Though she carried an exceptional protruding tummy that looked like her baby was going to drop out any second, she was not producing the typical cacophonous sounds expectant women produce when they are on the verge of delivery. She tightly covered herself with a blanket and slept for long hours, only waking up to take bathroom breaks.

How I Spent my Spring/Summer: Photos

Mami, Papa and last born

 I have decided to put the devil to shame! Chai! After procrastinating over and over again I have finally put together these pictures that show some of the things we did from Spring through Summer. See the pics below. I really do not want the summer to end but seasons must change. *wipes tears*

It's a Miracle...



My kind of miracle
The lame didn't walk
The blind didn't see
It's not even the deaf and dumb...
Far from those
It's my kind of miracle
A mother's marvelous miracle

Today, once again I fought the fight
I faced my fears
Held conversations with the smallies
Consciously paid attention to their chattering
I fed their little bodies
Watched them grow some more

The best part is that
I laid them to sleep
Finally....
Despite my feeble bones, my faint heart,  my crowded head
I lived to give today
For that I am grateful
That's what a miracle looks like around here
It's a miracle.

Akara Beans on Fleek

Akara Beans-Black Eyed Peas Fritters


My love affair with Akara Beans started when I was pregnant for my second girl. Before then, I had not paid much attention to the snack. There is something about pregnancy that makes you love a particular meal so much. Sometimes you could even get addicted to it or slightly obsessed with it. That was how Akara Beans hooked me oo.
