Sandwich


When all else fail, MAKE A SANDWICH.
Ingredient:
Tomato
Hard boiled egg
jalapeno Pepper
Mayonnaise
2 slices of whole wheat bread
African dried chili

Mackerel in tomato sauce



I am a huge fish person, Mackerel is a great choice of fish for a quick sauce. you can never get it wrong.
Tip: Give a large Mackerel a quick rinse, pour in 500ml of tomato sauce, add in 2 tablespoons of oil, 1tsp of salt, a dash of soy(optional) ( any other choice of spice), add in some chicken stock or bullion cube. simmer on low heat for 15mins.
