Reboot | A vegan dinner

Trying new things

Hi Guys!

This isn’t a fashion post but I still wanted to blog anyway. As you may or may not have noticed I don’t sew everyday so if you assumed that I fill my other days with eating cakes and crumpets well you wouldn’t be entirely wrong. I like good food and I cannot lie. It could be anything from a Kit Kat bar to Epkang Nkukwo but your girl doesn’t mind snacking on a thing or two at any given point. My mum and sister are both food bloggers so even more opportunities to support the snackery.

This weekend, I took my mum to a vegan restaurant. Yes, my Nigerian mother agreed to vegan food. With MINIMAL persuasion!!!! Let’s just sit on that for a quick second. I’m still wondering what the catch was. She only mentioned meat once during the entire dinner and I feel we truly judged the food on it’s merit.

Chana Chaat and Avo, Kale & friends

 

I was really inspired by my mum’s willingness to try something that frankly was not in her comfort zone in anyway. How often do we just play it safe, carry on with business as usual and never try to do something really new? It doesn’t always have to be a big thing like moving to another country or dying your hair spirogyra green. It could be the little things; like walking when you would have taken the bus or talking to people when you would otherwise have scrolled through Instagram for the 15th time in a 20 minute time-frame.

I guess all I’m saying is that you have to be willing to do the unexpected every now and again. Maybe it would work, maybe it won’t but it will be fun to try πŸ™‚

Chocolate Chip Happiness

Begin- Chocolate chip cookie

Hey thurr

For my bakers out there, have you ever baked a cookie so good it made you want to cry? You know those cookies that are perfectly crunchy on the rims and then perfectly chewy in the middle, or if you’re like me, the ones that are crunchy almost all the way through and then have a gooey chewy center. Over the summer I made that perfect cookie and I thought I would share the recipe.

Ingredients

2 cups of Flour

2 cups of Chocolate chips

1/2 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/2 cup of white sugar

1.5 sticks of butter

1 cup of Brown sugar

1 large egg and 1 egg yolk

1 tsp of Vanilla extract

Method

– Cream your butter and sugars until light and fluffy

-Add in eggs and vanilla extract

-Add in the baking soda, salt and flour in small amounts.

-Fold in the flour with a spatula.

-Add Chocolate chips and scoop your batter onto a greased cookie sheet.

-bake for 15-20 minutes and cool.

I think the most amazing experience was when I made a sandwich with Haagen dazs pralines and cream and these cookies *swoon*

Hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚
