The pic above is making me salivate o! :)

coconut rice & fried rice together?...wow! i had never thought of that combo...i would try it out, but would extract the coconut milk the manual way i know since the bottled ones sold here might had stayed long on the shelf. I would titus fish as supplement & meat.

p.s...please i don't know if it's only me that had noticed that frozen chicken, turkey & gizzard are getting more tasteless by the day?! no matter how i spice it up with curry, thyme, maggi & barley leaves, it just don't give me the desired taste! now i restrict myself to titus fish, cow meat & pomo!..my omi-obe do come out well! My family like it a lot with ewedu.

U need to try it, a little twist on 2 classics and it's heavenly!!!
@ tasteless frozen meat, well, i think most of the things coming into 9ja are very old products. if you can, Kill your own turkey, and chicken, spice, portion and freeze. it should be good for 12months.
supplementing fish in your diet is a good call, I am a huge fish person. depending on how i am making the fish, I have a couple of tested favorites.
anyways... have a superb week filled with great meals for ur family!!

Thank you so much in advance, I am really enjoying your blog, the pictures are making me hungry o :)

Hi Anon: First off... thanks much for stopping by.

a cup of rice should feed 2 adults. so if you are looking to feed 75 guest, we are looking at about 37 cups of rice, you can pro rate all the other ingredients using the cups of rice. I.e ~ 18 500ml coconut milk, 37 seasoning cubes,18 Tablespoon olive oil E.T.C

I made this 3x last week. *Covering my face*

Natural fresh coconut (The beauty of living in Nigeria) replaced your coconut tin milk.I used prawns, green pepper and sweet corn the first two times then smoked catfish and sweetcorn the 3rd time. Yum yum

@ NG, perhaps you should consider changing your suppliers. My chicken is always tasty even without marinading
