Hello lovely people!
Thanks for taking time out to read and apologies its been over two weeks I last posted, joys of womanhood eh, lol. Well, count it all blessings to be alive and well by God’s Grace, it can’t be better than that, can it?
I want to say thank you to mums and dads? that have downloaded the toddler meal planner and lunch box ideas. I have been receiving feedback of its usefulness and the practical thought to it especially for busy households!. Yep, a structure in place helps to make things easy :).
Ok, today’s feature is a simple dip perfect with finger foods, nachos or even your Mexican doritos. Its African style because I took a slightly different approach to the regular tomato salsa in that I steamed mine a little bit in olive oil and also seasoned a bit more for flavour, get the gist so far?
Plum tomatoes (one tin)
Red onions (1/2 bulb, chopped)
Olive oil (1 tsp)- purely to help grease the pan
(HSS: grated garlic, dash of lime juice, chopped fresh parsley (a small quantity), pinch of salt, dash of dried pepper)
Chop the plum tomatoes into smaller chunks and place in a bowl.
Chop the red onions and put to a side
In a lightly heated pan (reduced heat) pour in the olive oil and then add the chopped plum and onions. Allow to steam for about 5 minutes, stirring continuously to eliminate some (not all) of the liquid and sour taste, and prevent it from burning!
Add the parsley, garlic, dried pepper, pinch of salt and finally dash of lime juice. Allow to steam for another 3- 5 minutes. Take off heat and allow to cool. Finally blend (rough or fine blend).
Taste for seasoning and adjust as required. Remember, you don’t want too spicy and overcooked.
There you have it :)- simple and tasty! A perfect dip
It was indeed a pleasure to be part of a fab wedding fayre organised by Ruth Odunuga of Cultured Bride. The event took place in Bedforshire, with an aim to bring together Brides to Be in the Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire areas and providing them with useful information on planning their wedding, potential suppliers etc. The event was open to all and was indeed an awesome experience! You won’t want to miss the event come 2015 if you live in any of those areas or in London and Essex!
Until the next post….Remember, Keep up the focus, Keep believing and Keep making it happen.
