Avocado Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandiwch

I came up with this post because it was the last meal I had before going into the delivery room. I stood at the cooker showing my sister how to make a plain grilled cheese sandwich in an open pan. Shortly after eating it, the Baby contractions became stronger.... okay  a Lovely Baby came out some  minutes later. Lol.

Back to grilled cheese. Its such an easy breakfast to make and you can fill it with just about anything you like.

I made an avocado tomato grilled cheese sandwich. Here's what you need:

1 Avocado, pitted and cut in chunks1 tomato, diced1 small can sweet cornslices of light sandwich cheese/light/low fat mozzarella(if you're really watching your weight)some corned beef (optional)

Place a slice of bread on the place, add avocado pieces, and corned beef,and a slice of cheese(or half a slice if you would) place a slice of bread on that and repeat the avocado,corned beef,this time, add tomatoes and sweet corn,and cheese, cover with another slice.(3 slices in all). Drizzle…

Plantain Balls/Mosa

Iquo, a great cook i Admire, inspired me to try the mosa,its a snack i look out for on small chop platters.funny enough,its either absent or in very little quantity.

finding out I could make it easily is a blessing and I thought id share.

What you need
1 very ripe plantain (please avoid using rotten plantain, very ripe plantain is ideal)1/2 cup of flour (US measuring cup1 cup of water1 egg (optional)pinch of powdered pepperpinch of salt1/2 teaspoon of baking powderOil for frying
Mash the plantain or blend with water, add the salt and pepper, the egg (optional) and baking powder.


mix the batter well but be careful not to overmix the batter. Heat some oil in a non stick pan or pot, drop spoons of the batter in the oil, fry lightly for like 2 minutes on each side. drain on paper towels and serve with a pepper/ginger sauce or eat it just like that.
