Easter Sunday was super fun for me. I was able to wear an African outfit (pictured above) because the weather is getting better. But that’s not what made Sunday super fun. After church, we went to an Italian restaurant called Olive Garden
to eat. In case you haven’t noticed, food means fun to me. One of my favourite chefs is a beautiful Italian lady called Laura Vitale
. She made me fall in love with Italian food so I couldn’t wait to try out what they had on the menu.
We started off with bread sticks and salad.
The Bread Sticks proposed to me, ” Will you make us in your kitchen?” I said, “yes!!!”
I really loved the salad dressing. It was light and a little tingly. For the first time, I was able to eat Croutons (the little brown crunchy cubes) with my salad. Delicious!
Here is a very faint picture of baby girl and I at the restaurant. The lady on the left is my gorgeous sister-in-law. Hope you don’t mind seeing your pic here, Nata.
For a drink I was so confused by the many options that I just went for the first thing on the menu, Lavazza Espresso. I pictured it was going to be a huge cup of a brown chocolatey coffee-ish frothy mixture oozing with flavour. What greeted me was this tiny cup with a black bitter liquid. I felt like I was drinking, “contri medicine” at first but I grew to love it with every sip. That ‘love’ was really because I didn’t want money to waste. Lesson learnt.
I had Lasagna Classico– it’s in the plate below in the pic. I totally loved it – it was cheesy and the tomato sauce was not acidic but plain to the taste. Above is Fried Shrimps which Mr N ordered.
Girl number 2 had spaghetti, tomato sauce and grilled chicken.
Girl number 1 had pasta, tomato sauce and shrimps with grapes on the side.
It was a lovely outing and it was nice for me to take a break from cooking.
Meanwhile, within the week, Mr. N walked in on baby girl and I totally knocked out on the couch. She was restless in the wee hours of the morning so I took her to the living room to play. He took a pic of us…
Lol. I really look weird when sleeping.
In church we learnt that Jesus is our ultimate satisfaction. As humans, we keep seeking fulfillment in different things but there is a void in our hearts that only Jesus can fill. I just love everything Easter represents.
My Precious People, I’ve not posted a cooking video in a while and that’s because I’m working on making my subsequent videos better. Watch this space for more engaging videos that show you how to make delicious meals.
I’ll leave you with these words,
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF PRAYER
