Happy Weekend my lovely readers…
It is me again and happy summer holidays to all our lovely children! I pray as families go on holiday, may our children have fun and may good Lord protect us all- Amen
July 23 was indeed an emotional/ memorable one for me and other yummy mummies in the group as I hosted the first meet up in London for members of the Yummy Mummies Food Club on Facebook (a group I set up about 2 years ago with the aim of bringing mums together through food)…the title? Food, Fun, Connect..
The day before Friday, July 22 was my birthday which was a quiet one for me and the family… just reflecting on God’s goodness, prepping for the following day and praying along with the planning team that our “British” weather would be favourable as it had been pouring with rain and quite unsettling. I even had to put it as a prayer request in another group I am part of, lol. We needed the weather to be great as the event was happening in a park. Efforts were made to secure a room in the park just in case… however, the meeting room inside the park was unavailable on the day….
In a nutshell,
The weather turned out perfect!
Mums supported the event. We had goodie bags too
Yummy Mummies turned up with their yummy children 🙂
The food was lovely… of course that was the expectation *wink*
We had fun games for the children (they all won medals by the way, lol)
We had a massage therapist who gave hand or head massage, including nail painting for a token (Self Care 101) *wink*
And my biggest surprise! I was presented with a lovely birthday cake from Waitrose, a gift bag and a card signed by some of the yummy mummies… you can’t imagine how shocked I was 🙂… YUMMY MUMMIES FOOD CLUB ROCKSSSS!

Now onto the baked eggs recipe….I did promise on the yummy mummies food club Facebook group and my Instagram followers that I will post this recipe sharpish …
Kale leaves (small handful/ chopped)
Olive oil (to grease baking pan)
Left over spicy mackerel stewed sauce (I added this just to create some heat. Alternatively, add scotch bonnet or any spicy sauce you have at home
HSS: Few fresh parsley, crushed black pepper, little crushed knorr seasoning, dash of sea salt (optional)
Other fillings you could add to create a fiesta are
Red onion (roughly chopped), Cherry tomatoes (3, chopped), and Yellow Bell peppers (1, chopped), mixed veggies…
Whisk eggs in a bowl. Add the herbs and leave to a side.
Drizzle little olive oil to grease the pan
Into the pan, pour the whisked eggs, add some kale leaves. I then added the left over spicy mackerel stewed sauce and herbs
Place in a fan assisted oven at 180°C for about 20mins or until cooked, checking occasionally. You may notice that the sides starts to cook faster than the middle as the eggs rise, reduce the temperature at this point to avoid the edges from being too burnt
Serve with sweet potatoes, plantains, beans or make in a sandwich! 🙂
For the children, I added veggies and Matterson sausages cut in small pieces into the eggs before baking and they had it with plantains… yummilicious!
Until next post,
“Keep Making it Happen”
Blessings and Love
