I am very VERY particular about my food. I'm probably the most finicky eater on the planet. If it doesn't sound right, look right, or smell right...i'm not eating it. Nope. And even the stuff i do eat, it needs to be prepared juuuuuuuust so. When it comes to Nigerian food, i'm strictly a snacks/small chops kinda girl. Things that i always assumed people couldn't get wrong. But i've definitely been disappointed in the past.
How can you make meat pie with no meat? Literally just potato, onion and vegetable. Who does that? Such people deserve 2 hot slaps. One for false advertisement and another for good measure! Similarly, fish is not an acceptable substitute unless explicitly stated. I can't imagine the level of disappointment. It must be similar to opening your fridge, seeing a tub of ice cream and finding egusi inside instead (or at least thats what i heard lol) I did meet one girl who made the absolute best meat pie i've ever had in my entire life! I asked her if she was married and offered to pay her bride price on the spot lol.
I went to a party and there was puff-puff there. Of course i was excited because i only know like 1 person that ever makes puff puff and she doesn't make it often (and i refuse to make it myself). I go to bite into my snack and damn near lost a tooth! Puff Puff should not be harder than chin chin. Please take note.
Another party i went to, i got a nice big heaping helping of jollof rice. Like super huge portion. Now i know most people prefer "party rice" but I do not. And had i known that thats what was going down i would've eaten something else lol. That smoky flavor was sooooooo overpowering. It literally felt like i was eating charcoal. All i could see in my head was someone back in their backyard cooking the rice over a log and open flame lol. A lil smoke is okay but i still feel like i should be able to taste the rice.
Ah, this life. I feel bad for any potential spouse that feels like i should do all the cooking. Maybe i should put that in a pre-nup. Thou shall not cheat, philander, nor file for divorce due to issues relating to my cooking and thine palate.
Disclaimer: I mean no offense to those who enjoy hella smoky jollof rice, rock hard puff puff, or meatless meat pie.
Sidenote: man, the VP debate last night was a freaking slaughter. Biden went IIIIIIINNNNNNNNNN! Uncle Joe was having none the republicans' bullshiggidy and shenanigans last night!!! If he weren't married, he could definitely be my sugar daddy. Oh did i mention that i'm in the market for a sugar daddy (or to be a kept woman)? Cuz that's the back-up plan in case this whole finding gainful employment thing doesn't work out. lol- i'm laughing but i'm serious.
