No, seriously, how did your friend feed 3 mouths with just N20,000? undecided

I just cross off people who do that, particularly those who have kids with next to nothing, as just some of most evil of evil folks out there. But please exactly how do they do that? undecided

Its not every time that you must fry stew.
And with the recent increase in the price of tomato.
This might be the way going forward.

Rice and Pepper soup.
I have rice at home.
Pepper soup ingredients - 200 naira (per cup)
Utazi leaf (the bitter one)
Kote fish 600 naira

I added grounded crayfish, salt and maggi.
That's all.

Slice onions down

I just pour the water leaf inside the pot
Pour the onions immediately with it and add palm oil, with one maggi and cover it
The onions and the heat will soften the waterleaf and in a matter of minutes,
It's done.

Potatoes and fried pepper.

Potatoes - #500
Pepper (rodo) - #100
Tomato - 100
Ponmo -150


I decided to cook this after seeing a person selling it at work.
I learnt the trick of boiling the potatoes with nylon inside the pot before covering it
Add enough water and use a small poly bag or nylon to cover the potatoes to give it an all round cooking with the steam

Boil your ponmo and add it to your sauce.

Eggs to the Rescue.

With the cost of brea and noodles.

You should learn how to start eating eggs.
Eggs is fat and fat last longer in the stomach than carbohydrate that shoot up our insulin and make up feeling hungry again


Instead of buying more noodles buy more Eggs
Don't be afraid to eat 4 or 5 Eggs at once.
It will benefit you more than 400 naira Belleful indomie that doesn't use to rise again.

And it more nutritious and will stay in your stomach longer.

I drink coffee and sugar
Buy 3 Eggs and one Yale bread For breakfast..
Don't boil it too hard.

With the way things are going only Eggs will save us.

Mashed potatoes and Eggs.

Cut your potatoes add onions and put on the fire (adding onions makes It soften quicker) because of gas

When cooked, bring your spatula and turn it like eba, add pepper and a little salt
Fry your eggs.

Pepper soup ingredients
(Someone asked what it is)

Here's what it looks like.

The game changer for cooking noodles.
Sometimes when you eat noodles you fill you are not full, no matter how many you eat.
Well this sets out to change all that.
With 2 superpack and 1/2 eggs
And you scoop some of this it will give you that pepper soup feeling.
And with enough broth to drink when. You finish your noodles. Or if you are eating with bread.

THE GAME CHANGER:

ADDING extra oil to your Sunday rice.

Yes extra Groundnut oil.
This will make you get full easier.
It will set your brain on fire, after you eat it, you will blow our plenty catarrh from your nose
And you get full quicker.

I have been studying the northerners and they possess a lot of knowledge about living life in a cheap way that I really want to know and understand.

Adding extra oil to your rice will make you get full quicker as rice is carbohydrate too much rice will only make you fat.
Do you ask yourself why are the Northerners thinner,
They don't eat much rice, but they eat beans and add oil to their food.

Adding extra oil to your rice to as much as 1/4 of the plate. Makes you warm, makes you full with less food, and increase your brain activity.

Try it this Sunday.
Pour that extra oil to your rice and see if you will be able to finish that portion that you are used to.

If you feel nauseous lick tom Tom.


Happy Sunday

CIGARETTES.

Yes you heard me, without cigarettes hungry will kill us. As we Nigerians descend into comummunist slavery.
We have to learn from the Chinese to incorporate cigarette as part of our diet.
They help control the hunger so that we can eat once a day and they shrink our stomachs so that little food will be enough.

You should limit to at most 2 sticks per day
And drink hot tea (Lipton and the likes)to wash down your lungs.
My brand ( Oris Strawberry)

E go better.
