I was on the phone to my mum and our conversation soon turned to food. My sister cooked obe gbure elegusi some years back and it’s still the best gbure soup I have had till date. TBH, I have not been able to beat it. There is something about the soup that have never stopped me talking about it, the taste was out of this world, it was amazing.

I seriously can’t believe it took me almost twenty something years before I made my own tuwo shinkafa or rice tuwo/balls as fondly called. I have recently turned a nuisance but in a good way.

Mr Monday’s Okra Stew

When I was pregnant with my daughter, all I could manage to eat at some point was Mr Monday’s okra soup. Ok, before you start wondering, Mr Monday is hubby’s work colleague and this okra soup was one of their go to soup when the boys were hungry then. The first time I had this meal I couldn’t believe my mouth. Lol.
