Of forgiveness, Chicken Lollipops and Bacon Wrapped Chicken.

Once in a while, you come across a blog that inspires you.

That's the effect Sabirah's blog has on me. Her post about forgiveness made me think deeply. It's hard to believe that she's so young. I admire her.

I found this picture of Chicken Lollipops she put up. Yummy.

Reminds me of one of my new discoveries, Bacon wrapped Chicken. Yum Yum Yum, Delicioso! 
Home made appetizers for the win!

So what if it came in a box from the store?
I had to carefully unwrap the box, arrange the pieces in a pan and bake it in my oven. It doesn't get anymore "home made" than that joor. Scratch "made from scratch". *adjusts chef hat*

One of my friends thinks I'm crazy because when I'm hungry, I like to look at pictures of food. It gives me pleasure, especially if it's food I already ate. I feel like I'm breaking the "you can't eat your cake and have it" rule. *cheeky grin*

I like breaking rules. Tell me I can't do something and I immediately find myself trying to figure out just how I can get away with doing it. Explains why I got into a lot of trouble as a child... Yeah, that and my big mouth... My aunty used to call me "Radio Lagos". If only talking was an Olympic sport... 


Do you like to look at pictures of food too, or do you, like my friend, think I'm only punishing myself? 

I would like to know what you think.

Thanks for coming by again and again.
May your dreams come true

  1. You know, I tell myself I'm done going on food blogs esp 9ja foodie, then she makes a new post & I find myself going over. I'm not exactly a foodie but I just love the sight of food. Makes me want to dance *covers face*

    If talking was an Olympic sport, you'd have had stiff competition o. I can talk for Africa :D

  2. I like your friend, think you are only punishing yourself?
    infact more like torturing yourself (pardon my english)...I have a friend who daily stare at pictures of orishirishi shoes, but I guess this is slightly different from your case.

    The word Radio Lagos reminds me of my sister, kai that one too can talk till tomorrow.
