Guys, just hear me out for a minute here. I need to vent.

Does this ever happen to you especially us foodies or bakers? Do you have those friends, family or relatives who just pop in to your home unannounced and walk right into your kitchen asking “Leo umepika nini tukule?” {What have you cooked today for us to eat?} In my head am like “Snaps fingers Giiiirl!! who is us? Most of you guys know am not so much of a people’s person, but you cannot do such things and get away with not cleaning the dishes. Aki!! I cannot deal with this. This is one of those pet peeves. Aki!! No.

What are your thoughts on this?? Leave you opinions and comments below.

Up to now, my taste buds are all over the place. I can’t really decide which flavored penne pasta is my favorite, but for now I’ll have to say chicken & mushroom was delicious since I inhaled everything. For the rest, I can’t really say much, but am about to dig into right now – and yes for breakfast.
