I dedicate this first food posting to my African heritage.
Ogbono Soup and pounded yam, the delicious subject matter today, has grown on me especially in January. I literally craved the soup every day after cooking it... really. As a self-proclaimed African food junkie, that behavior falls right in line. I almost need an intervention for such a conduct so here goes the first step:
Hi, my name is Ms Rexti and I'm addicted to fufu and soups!
Yeah, nothing's changed. I think I just drooled in fact (0_0). Seeing these photos again while writing this post makes it difficult not to go set a pot on the stove, warm up some of the soup and eat it right now. Be right back! ...
... It tasted even better days later, mmmmm.
Since African dishes come as diverse as the continent's myriads of tribes, my absolute 'I could eat it all day and all night' favorite traditional dishes comes from our family's tribe, the Akwa-Ibom people. Listen, it can take up a whole day to describe how deliciously appetizing some of our tribal dishes like Ekpang Nkukwo and Afang Soup tastes. Since this blog has no room for history lectures, enjoy these photos above of the Ogbono soup cooked days ago, that kept my belly quite happy last month and today. I prepared a big pot containing soup to last one person for days :-) nice right?
In this soup: Turkey wings (chopped), ogbono (blended), bell-peppers, onions, smoked fish, okra, spinach, knorr cube boullions, cray-fish, powder hot pepper, salt, and palm oil.

Eating healthy means mindfully putting an effort to caring about what yummies we allow in our body. Hope this sharing encourages some healthier choices.
