Happy Easter! I’m sure you guys might be wondering what I had for Easter..well, by now most of you, after reading my blogs, must have concluded that I am a lazy cook and that I probably ate out on Easter day as usual…well you are total wrrrright. On Saturday, my mum knowing her daughter very well had to prepare my mindset for the Sunday banquet she had hoped that I would prepare, she goes “So Miriam sweetie, what are you cooking tomorrow, for Easter?” My reply “Lets wait and see, shall we?” ….
Its Easter Sunday and off to church I went, on my return food was ready…Jollof Rice prepared by the mum. I’m surprised that she didn’t even bother to wait and see what I had planned. Nonetheless, I invited my friend to come over anyway so we can cook a banquet…as I needed motivation…she comes over and confesses that she didn’t come to my house to cook but to hangout because shes bored and lazy to do anything. Hmmm…thats not encouraging..I mean from one lazy cook to another…
In comes mum from church…at this point, feeling guilty and all, I mustered all my energy, got off the couch! and….. suggested we go out and eat instead.
Mum likes Nigerian delicacies, so it had to be a Nigerian Restaurant. I suggested Biobak Restaurant located at Garki 2, Abuja. Off we went…getting there we were greeted with variety of dishes to choose from…Mum went for pounded yam and vegetable soup with her favorite, Stockfish. I had assorted meat, fried yam and egg. My friend had rice and chicken curry sauce with assorted meat. The damage was N13,000.00. Honestly, when the cashier told me the cost I almost had a mini heart attack…N13K for what?! I thought. But I paid as a hard babe! Then went to our table to study the receipt…I see where the major damage was done…Stockfish X1 cost N1,900.00, Snails X2 cost 2,400.00…hmmm, what matters is that mum enjoyed herself.
Fast forward to Easter Monday, what wakes me up from sleep is a natural cleanse…the kind done in the toilet!!! Ok now I am angry, what kind of expensive food gives stomach upset! At this point Im telling myself “Never Again!!!” If I ever eat at Biobak again, it has to be for free! That way, I know what Im getting myself into. Now Iv got a flat tummy like Rihannanana!
Speaking of Rihanna, I’m digging this her new song #BBHMM, enjoy!
