I Have A Guest...

...and a problem. My friend's fiance has a guest visiting from abroad so she's had to move in with me and she'll be here until sometime next week. The problem is that we have completely different tastes in food. Even though we're both Nigerian, i don't buy into the idea of only eating Nigerian food or only things that have the closest similarity to it. I'm a student, i don't have time or money to waste and anything that i can't find walking into Woolies rarely comes home with me. I make Nigerian food once in a blue moon and that usually coincides with the times i go somewhere else to get my hair done in an African store. I generally eat anything as long as the meat/fish in it isn't something i can't eat or something that makes me gag

But with her, it's all Nigerian food or anything bearing the closest resemblance in smell and taste. So i'm here wondering what i'm going to cook during her time here and i'm pretty much lost for ideas. She doesn't eat curry, i forced her to eat bolognaise, she doesn't eat pasta bake nor will she eat potatoes except it's in the form of chips. I made her jollof rice and chicken last night (or red rice as some people like to call it)

Right now i'm tired and not in the mood for stress, so i'm just going to order pizza for her to have as dinner while i enjoy a meal of tuna pasta bake. I'm too tired to think of any other alternatives and when she's free, i'm dragging her to Woolies to go pick up whatever she can eat because i'm not going to look for the ingredients to any Nigerian meal. 

If you have any ideas other than rice, please let me know. And if you have any lunch ideas that doesn't involve raw veggies, let me know as well. Thanks a lot in advance and do have a nice day :)


  1. I hope it works out! I am sorry to say I don't have any suggestions. :(


  2. Hi Jodie, i've been able to sort it out :)
