Dress to kill him at home, not outsiders, not house uniform everyday

Image
DRESS TO KILL YOUR MAN AND NOT OUTSIDERS. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE GOING OUT BEFORE CARING ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK! Let him return from work and meet you looking sweet and refreshed.  Ok, you as a woman, when your husband dresses well and looks good, don't you feel something? When your husband is very careless and unkempt with his looks, do you like it? Not to talk of men that are well wired to be moved by what their eyes see whether at home or abroad. See, It's very easy for very busy mums especially full time housewives to start depending on robes,  boubou,  big gowns and all kinds of lose and free clothing because that's what keeps you comfortable considering you are not going to any office or attending an event. Eventually that daily same look becomes a lifestyle. 

Sharon O, in the enlightening post below, encourages women too look their best even at home.  A lot of women have lost their homes because they did not pay attention to their looks, they got so carried away with ca…

Your onion

Image
In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people, there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died. The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy. Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with this most interesting experience about onions: Thanks for the reminder.  I don't know abo…

FREEZING GUIDE: HOW LONG TO KEEP YOUR FOOD FROZEN IN THE FREEZER

Image
Freezing means that we can prepare food in bulk, and can make the most of foods that are in season like now vegetables like ugu leaves (fluted pumpkin) are in season are less expensive. If you have constant electricity and your freezer gets frosty, defrost every 6 to 12 months. If the freezer is opened often like in large households, the frost builds up often. Your freezer can become a black hole if it is a very large one and you just keep adding until things disappear to be discovered years later and thrown away- I don't think that can happen in Naija sha with this epileptic power supply.

The freezing chart below is just a guide, make sure you use frozen things/foods within the recommended period of time because storing soup for instance for longer than 2 months is not the best.

FREEZING TIPS: 

Once frozen food is thawed, never refreeze it because it may cause food poisoning and may not be the same. Look at ice cream for instance, once it's thawed and frozen again, it becomes cr…

THE REASON YOUR SPAGHETTI SPOON HAS A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE

Image
The spaghetti spoon in your kitchen is way more useful than you thought, it's not just for scooping out or serving already cooked spaghetti. I always thought that the hole was there to drain water but that's not all... That hole in the spoon holds the recommended portion for 1 serving of spaghetti , that's for those interested in eating the right portions and losing weight. Usually, I just cook the entire pack of spaghetti, with the best intentions of eating the leftovers  the next day. However, that old

HONESTLY, I WISH I WASN'T A WORKING MUM

Image
When I was a little kid growing up in the North, my mom didn’t work outside of the home. Instead, she stayed home with me and my sisters, playing with us and cooking every meal we ever wanted to eat, teaching us things, reading the yellow hard cover "my book of bible stories' with us and prying along, caring for us, and when we got older she dusted her certificate and went back to work as a staff nurse at a hospital. She would “go back to work” eventually, but while we were small, she was a full-time parent. When I was preparing to have my own child, I wasn’t sure if that was something that I wanted or not. Ultimately, the financial realities of my working class family meant that it wasn’t really a decision I had to make, because my family needed me to be working to sustain us in this economy. And to be honest, being with my son 24/7 and having nothing else that I hadto do during the lengthy postpartum period made me feel antsy and weird. When I started working, and especiall…

NIGERIAN GOLDEN TOMATOES

Image
In Nigeria today, tomatoes might be more expensive than gold. What is really happening? These are times when most Nigerian women pray our hubbies go do the shopping because no amount of house upkeep allowance will be enough if your family consumes tomatoes a lot; In salads, stews, egg sauce etc.

Why did tomato become so expensive all of a sudden? This rainy season is when there should be tomatoes everywhere rotting in baskets beside market women. What is going to happen in December this year? Then we'll all need tomatoes in bulk for Christmas and New year celebrations? Hope a basket won't sell for hundreds of thousands of Naira oh?  Na small small e dey take start.You know I

I HAD AN ABORTION JUST BEFORE MY WEDDING

Hello ma, I had an abortion four years ago and thought I had gotten over it. I was 24 years old, we were planning our wedding and I didn't want to be seen as a pregnant bride. Although my husband (then fiance) tried to convince me to leave it, I couldn't stand what other church members will think of me when I give birth earlier than 9 months after the wedding. "I'm in the church choir, what would they think of me" how will they start treating me afterwards?". Our courtship was seemingly very strict as my church has rules about all these things, what would they say if 6, 7 months after the wedding they receive news I gave birth to a baby that doesn't even look premature?  I went ahead and secretly did it. 
Let me not lie, I was haunted after the wedding, I never thought another
