Foodie Series: Pita Bread, Fried Mince & Veg Sandwiches!

Hey guys, do you have moments when you are in too much of a rush to make a proper meal? Happens to me all the time. On such days, I make my quick fixes such as this sandwich.
It literally took me 10 minutes to prep and another 15 minutes to fry the vegetables and the garlic mince. The ingredients for the stuffing included;
      * Baby Corn
          * Green Pepper
* Carrots
* Onions
    * Courgette
* Garlic
Interestingly enough, I was planning to use some mayonnaise for the cream topping, but unfortunately, I had run out and so as I was preparing to use some natural yoghurt, I actually discovered some left over sour cream cheese in my fridge. It turned out so gooood! I made some fresh mint and pineapple juice served in a mason jar to accompany the sandwich. The ingredients for the cream topping included;
                                                                         * Cream cheese
                                                                         * Onions
                                                                         * Celery
                                                                         * Corriander
Have a blessed Friday and an awesome weekend ahead!

Foodie Series: Chocolate Cake Dessert!

 Hello beautiful people! Finally the sun is out today in Nairobi! So todays post features the chocolate cake I made during the Sunday brunch we had with PikchaGUY a few weeks back. My mum-in-love gave me this recipe a few years back, which is simple & the outcome is very delicious. 
All you need is:
* 6 oz of flour
* 6 oz or butter
* 6 oz of sugar
* 3 eggs
* 1 oz of cocoa (preferably dark)
*1 oz of baking powder
* Baking tins

Mix all the ingredients in the food processor & bake at 180 C for 20-25 minutes!
I then mixed some cocoa, icing sugar, butter and homemade strawberry jam for the icing... And of course some ripe strawberries to finish it off.
Have a lovely Tuesday & thanks for reading!

Most needed R&R at Chale!

Ello ello! So first and foremost.. its my BIRTHDAY!!! Yipee!!! Feeling extremely grateful & blessed as I celebrate this day! So these are just a few pics of our (hubby &I) recent vacay at the beautiful & exotic Chale Island
Now this R&R was urgently needed since I had just completed my thesis after much procrastination, then I had travelled to Uganda for work and immediately I got back, I had to attend my graduation. So its been back to back for the better part of July & August. 
Being a proud supporter of domestic tourism, Chale was definitely a great location for some time off. Chale is an island off Diani in South Coast & is roughly 700 metres off the mainland. The staff are friendly, the rooms have a breathtaking view of the ocean and its one of the best places to go when you just need to switch off from the world for a few days! All in all, we had a fantastic holiday!
Have a great weekend!
