Sunday Rice is a culture that has come to stay in Nigeria. For most families, even if no one eats rice from Monday to Saturday, on Sunday after church rice has to be served. Most times, Sunday Lunch is rice and stew or jollof rice. Recently fried rice has come to almost take the place of these two. Rice just has to be served on Sunday. Today I don't want any status-quo so, I go for rice and Sunday vegetable sauce with fish. Tastes really delicious. My vegetable sauce is something any one can can cook even with eyes closed.
See vegetable sauce recipe here.
I made this vegetable sauce with:

Rice and stew, even jollof rice eaten with bananas tastes so good. The combo is delicious. On Sundays after church we drive straight to the fruits market to get bananas before heading home for Sunday rice with bananas.

Minced meat and cow tail gravy is really delicious with rice. The main meat here is the cowtail but knowing that cowtail on it's own is almost tasteless, I added minced meat (beef) for enhanced taste. Didn't want to cook nutritious but bland gravy, wanted both taste and nutrition combined in 1 pot. Rice and stew can be tiring sometimes if we do not alternate with gravy.
Nigerians have come to accept and love gravies so much so that at events these days, you hardly see rice and stew without some gravy for those who prefer it. To cook cow tail gravy, it's very important to first of all cook the cow tail soft and seasoned before adding to gravy. I pressure cooked the cow tail soft in just 15 minutes.
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 large onion
- 1 cup minced meat
- Seasoning cubes to taste
- Salt to taste
- Pepper (I always use my pepper sauce for cooking)
- 3 cabbage leaves
- 1 large egg plant (Garden egg)
- 3 medium sized carrots
- A handful of green peas
- 1/2 cow tail
- Thickener ( I used knorr gravy powder (Roast meat)

Smoked fish gravy is sauce cooked like any other gravy we have on this blog. Cooked with vegetables, seasoning and a thickener which could be baking flour.
Cooking gravy is very easy as all it needs is stir fry the vegetables, add stock or water, season to taste and thicken to desired consistency. Gravy is cheaper (less expensive) to cook compared to Nigerian tomato stew. Gravy is nutritious and can make you eat so much rice because of the taste. Can be cooked with meat, chicken, fish etc. Scroll down to see more gravy recipes on the blog.
INGREDIENTS FOR SMOKED FISH GRAVY:
- 6 cups stock but added some more water later to reduce the thickness
- 4 large carrots
- 3 medium sized onion
- 1 large cabbage
- 4 red bell peppers (tatashey)
- 2 smoked fish (Titus/mackerel)... deboned
- 2 packs knorr roast meat gravy
- 1/3 cup flour
- Grand soya oil
- 1 tablespoon pepper sauce
- 2 knorr cubes
- Chop and dice all vegetables and put away.
- Wash and debone the smoked fish
- Heat oil a little
- Stir fry the vegetables with seasoning cubes for about 1 minute or more if you want them a bit soft. I like crunchy veggies.
- Add the stock or water or both.
- Add pepper sauce and stir, check for taste of salt and seasoning
- Thicken. I used knorr gravy and added flour when not satisfied with thickness.
- Add smoked fish last so it doesn't crumble during stirring. Check taste and thickness.
- Serve with rice.

Easter To Remember
Easter falls on Sunday March 27 and Monday March 28 this year. Easter Weekend is time to be home with family and celebrate the death and Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In Nigeria, we do not know much about egg hunting and painting and other Western stuff, honestly unlike Christmas, Easter celebrations are kinda boring in many families. People just dress up, go to church, come back home, eat Sunday rice and chicken, and... that's it. Some go nap while others get busy with gadgets taking and posting pics Online. Here is how you can make your Nigerian Easter

Oh yes, indomie again. We've had a long enough break sha. I remember in 2013, when I kept posting different indomie noodle recipes until I started receiving comments asking if noodles are the only thing I know how to cook. I am not a noodle fan. This, here is hubby's last Sunday's lunch. He loves noodles with lots of vegetables and proteins. I never wanted to share this but come on, someone reading might like it. He enjoyed this lunch thoroughly while I enjoyed my Sunday rice and stew with some chill water. You can also try it this weekend, if your kids love noodles, this is a very nutritious version. When you kids eat this, you are sure there is fibre in their noodles meal and no worries about bowel movements and malnutrition.
I am posting this because even though there are many noodles recipes on the blog, there is none

I was 16 years old in 2006 when I wrote my first Jamb and I scored 300 but didn’t gain admission into the university because my English was withheld in my Waec Result. The next year 2007 the English was released and this time I scored 270 in Jamb and I got admission to study Economics at the Niger Delta University in Bayelsa State Nigeria.
I spent all my four years in the university yet attended church only 3 times (God has forgiven me), Fast forward to 2011, I graduated with a second class lower (2:2), same year I started doing business (buying and selling of female and male items) and November 2011 I went for National Youth Service Corp and rounded up November 2012.
After my NYSC I prayed to God that I don’t want to be Jobless, that I needed a Job before it is November 2013 which will be exactly a year after NYSC. December 2012 I left Port Harcourt where my parents reside and travelled to my state of origin to stay with my Elder sister for a while because I was so depressed and always lugubrious due to a failed relationship etc.
