Eid Mubarak to my muslim friends!
I had fun celebrating Eid even though i still miss the Naija way.My classmate decided to cook dinner for me to celebrate the end of Ramadhan,we had planned that we were going to go to a restaurant before but my friend was like why don't we just chill and eat at home.We were like is he sure he can cook,he was like sure,what do we want to eat.Tope was like she wanted french cuisine and he said no problem.I was busy thinking to myself,"i hope i don't go there and disgrace myself" cause i am not very adventurous when it comes to food.
We asked him what ingredients should we bring,he was like no problem he would take care of everything.
Anyways not to just go there empty-handed,we got some plates,cutleries,cakes and some drinks.I didn't know what wine to pick but just gambled on a bottle that looked nice.
We walked round the town looking for his apartment cause his descriptions were very hazy at best.It was a policeman that actually showed us the way,who by the way seemed drunk to me,well maybe it was the accent:).We finally got to his place and we were surprised at the preparations,the food was smelling lovely!
We gisted for a while and my friend was tripping that his flatmate was italian(i also think italians can be so sexy),everyone was laughing and just generally had a good time.
The food was served,so the time of reckoning was here(LOL) for me and my taste buds.The presentation was on point almost looked like a restaurant meal-the only difference was the disposable plates:).I already could see so many things i have never eaten before on my plate,the meal was a combination of Italian and French food.The chicken was on point and that was what i used to neutralise the effect of the vegetable mix which had an odd taste.Long story short,i just ate the rice and the chicken and quickly took my plate to the kitchen to hide the evidence in the bin.In a gathering that had other Nigerians i knew i wouldn't be the only one with an ordinary taste in food so it was all good.
It was a great night out and am sure we will be doing more of it,i just need to train my taste buds to start accepting foods other than ogbono and egusi :(!
