SNAIL TOMATO STEW SO PEPPERY AND CRUNCHY

Image
When dinner is really spicy, so so hot yet the kids cannot stop eating, they ask for more water instead, just know that meal is irresistibly tasty. This hot crunchy tomato stew is different from the crunchy peppered snail recipe posted on the blog earlier. Peppered snail is cooked differently from snail stew. While snail stew contains generous amounts of peppers and tomatoes, peppered snail is cooked with just pepper, oil and seasoning. Cooking this crunchy snail stew is so easy. To get the snail crunchy, you use the same old method of washing with lime or alum, adding them to boiling water or freezing to harden. There is a post on how to prepare snails from scratch. Check it first if your snails are still in their shells.  While the peppered snail is served as a snack, this one is a main meal to be served with any accompaniment of choice.

NIGERIAN SALAD CREAM ADAPTED FROM THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING

Image
It just occurred to me again this morning that the reason all my kids love vegetable salads could be the dressing I use. After trying so many salad dressings, the one that clicked with my Nigerian palate is the thousand Island Dressing. When I use it on the kids' burgers, they just eat and eat. When it's used on salads, the bowl clears within minutes. Then, all of a sudden, around last year, the price of Thousand Island dressing just rose like that and aside the price skyrocketing, we couldn't find it easily like we used to. Sometimes we went round different supermarkets and see other salad dressings sitting elegantly on shelves but no Thousand Island and we till now
