Counting Down to Mother’s day – this Sunday.

upcoming mother's day

My mama bear just jetted in town yester-night and I always love spending quality time with her, since I learn so much more and her company is beyond words. She probably doesn’t keep tabs of her birthdays or special occasion such as “Mothers’ day and that’s the reason I am here, to remind her what she almost missed out on.  She is elderly {Total denial- she’s getting old}.

Perfect timing for us to spend mother’s day together and total bonding.

I will start with what we prepared together – dinner yesterday.

Simple local cuisine:

Ugali + Dry beef fry.

Ugali + Fry

It was incredible delicious, though I must confess, I have not quite yet perfected my Ugali cooking. I find it quite hard, yet so many say its the simplest African dish to prepare, well for me its a different story. The Ugali preparation is courtesy of Mama Bear {Mum} and the Dry beef fry is I.

It was amazingly scrumptious.

      “The sugar is just for coating, but that particular one with maple was for my pal, mine was simple as the coated one”. The maple was just a topping that I had, and gave my readers something to play around with.
