HEALTHY AND SIMPLE ALTERNATIVE TO MAKING NIGERIAN SWALLOW, FUFU, GARRI OR SEMOVITA

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. Hello my lovelies! Today I will be showing how to make Nigerian/West African swallow . This, a healthier version of fufu, semi, garri and so on. You get the gist. It's very straightforward and you won't break bank or your wallet. Ingredients : Oats. Water. Appliances : blender, turning garri (gaskiya, I've forgotten the English name for this appliance, I think it's wooden spatula), clean pot and heat. Add equal parts of oats and water into your blending jug and blend till it is a smooth paste. If you like it rough don't make it overly smooth. I don't like sufferhead so I blend until it is very smooth. Transfer the mixture/paste into a lot and place it on medium heat (fire).

In this blog post I am sharing my 5 am morning routine with you, which some months ago would have had me rolling with laughter. I try my best to maximize every minute of the day, and get more work done. It also helps that the sun rises pretty early here at 4 am sometimes, and other times at minutes past 5 am. Personally, from my experience I think the secret to gettingup early is sleeping early. 5 AM: Wake up, and lay in bed for a bit. I like to dress my bed once I get out of it, it keeps me calm and organized . On some days I drink my lemon and water, on other days I make s

Quote of the Day: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.- 2 Chronicles 7:14. My friends!!!!! I am back again today with a sought after post, work from home outfits featuring loungewear.  I received some loungewear  from  FemmeLuxe !  It is not news that are all staying at home. However, it is for a good reason. Most of us are pretty occupied with either work or academic pursuits, or both while in our loungewear. In today's stay at home series, I'm sharing what I wear to stay at home nowadays. Working from home this quarantine/isolation period had me in denim bumshorts (channeling my  inner Beyonce HBCU  performance), my black leggings, and flimsy house tops.
