MONDAY CHIT-CHAT :TASTE OFF!

My people! How body? Seriously today is an extremely lazy day for me oh especially as it is public holiday! I said I wasn't going to do anything today apart from eating and sleeping until I remembered...ah! Monday Chit-Chat! E ma binu! Eees the season. Happy Sallah to my muslim readers, where's the rest of the ram ehn? I'm still waiting! What did you get up to? The first to leave a comment wins airtime recharge! Una know as e dey go,  ram would have been a nice giveaway abi?


 By the way this morning I had Ukodo for brunch and it was made with ram meat, so yummy! 
My beautiful plate of Ukodo

Back to the weekend...so I got a reminder that Sunday was going to be Taste Off at Freedom Park, I said I wasn't going to miss it for anything, so  after church we went straight there. I didn't even know Freedom Park was in Lagos Island...












 This was the first stand I saw when I got to the vendor area. This chef was selling instant rice: I mean instant jollof and fried rice. Its already cooked and preserved so all you have to do is boil it for about 10 minutes if you're hungry. Interesting! Instant rice. Weldone. Would you like to try something like that?
It's called Taste Off abi? meaning there's supposed to be an abundance of fooooooooood! Infact on my way I could already imagine being spoilt for choice of food. The first item I ordered for was Banga and Starch...because I can't say no to it. This one was alright...for 1500 naira I expected a huge serving of it but this is all I got :\
 So Bobo decided to waka about to see what he fancied...he settled on some a sun, nkwobi and bbq turkey. You see this 3 turkey piece? It cost 700 naira. The tiny plate of a sun and nkwobi cost 700 naira each as well...I be wan cry. The camera makes it look bigger than it seems...it was tiny! 


Detan and I
I met Oluwadetan after she introduced herself as a reader, I found her name to be very unique, do you know what it means? "God is coming soon"! Yes! Never heard that name before and loved it! She has submitted her name for consideration when the twins arrive. LOL. I met other readers...air kisses to all of you! You're too sweet.

After eating I decided to go my uncle's for my Sallah ram but before I did so I took a walk around the "garden" I found these sculptures very interesting. Don't you? 
Loved my Iro and Buba (OlivesByBeth sells nice Iro and Buba 7A5634B6)
 The Taste Off would have been better if there were more food vendors and if their food was actually more affordable...which one is 700 naira asun? I can get more for less from the guy down my street. Even the smoothie my sister bought was 1k. Bia, I go make my own smoothie, it's not hard. I assumed the purpose of the event was to showcase different meals at affordable prices. I must have missed the memo. Anyways I'm still glad I came out to experience it because I wanted to since last year. Been there. Done that now :D
My wallah rice and ram
See ehn, I was supposed to go to the launch of Genevieve's fashion line but would you believe I totally forgot??? I felt like shooting myself when I got home and i was laying in bed...Ojigbijigbijigbi! Forgetful blogger. I have to start setting up reminders again because obviously I've not been doing well managing my time. Also don't vex if I have not replied your emails...i will do so soonest! By the way Big Brother Africa has started...are you following???

I'm going back to bed! Mwaaaaaah!

  9. You were really in vacation mode because you did not even proofread your post. LOL. But truth be told that starch and banga was too small for 1500! Kilode? Maybe the people thought it would be a chancw to make a killing.

  15. Hi sisi,looks like u had plenty fun during the weekend,the rice got my interest cos I keep wondering what preservatives were added and cooking it in nylon bag? MBA cos some of the chemicals from the bag may leach into the food. In all I think am hungry

  18. See food o! But which one is instant rice uhn? Sorry not trying it. I don't know what was used to preserve it. Yikes!! The food could have been bigger but maybe the overhead cost of the exhibition fee and other costs made them to reduce the size.

  21. hopefully next time they can make it more affordable it kinda defeats the purpose of drawing crowds if it on the high price.

  22. I am the first to comment oh. Etisalat credit thanks. A lot of events in lagos feel overpriced and pretentious. Not suprised at the high prices

  23. That cute little boy, and the little girl, who is a book addict are my children. We won't charge much Sisi.

  24. That food looks delicious! Nothing this interesting ever goes on when i'm around lol. Oh and uum that already made jollof rice? I don't know about that. Jollof rice is definitely a meal that is supposed to be cooked with love and someone in mind. Kind of like every african meal to be honest lol.
