My palates are NOT amused July 29, 2013

Spoiler alert: This post may have to do with Chef Fregz instagram pictures.

So this cold rainy morning, I am sitting at the dining table having tea and biscuits (oh yes, I am fancy) with my books infront of me. I wonder how I’m going to be able to read because I have a headache and I feel like I should go back to bed.

‘But you’re on strike you should be in bed all day sleeping! Why the hell are you even reading’, you may think. Well the sad truth is, you see sometimes even when I’m tired and no matter how many sheep I count, I can’t sleep.

No, I don’t suffer from insomnia thank God! This only happens during the day. So once I wake up in the morning, no matter how tired I am sometimes I am not able to go back to sleep. It’s a sad and terrible thing. But that’s not why I am here today. You see today I am here to rant about my unamused palates.Yes you read right. My palates are very unamused!

Being stuck at home for the past one month (once again special thanks to ASUU and the FG), I have had to take breakfast almost compulsorily. When I’m at school I usually have early classes and so I hardly have time to eat in the mornings except occasional runs to the coffee shop in between classes.

For some odd reason I find it hard to stay in bed later than 9am. My body clock has betrayed me! I hardly ever have the sweet long beauty sleep my soul requires thanks to some certain members of my family that keep disturbing my sleep for reasons I feel can wait till I’m already up! *sigh* I digress.

Where was I again? Oh yes, my palates. This isn’t even only about breakfast. Lunch and dinner inclusive. I have for the past month been stuck in a ‘palatial rut’ (my invention). This means my meals are so routine and now I’m sick of it. Bread, eggs, plantain, yam, beans, etc. The only things I am not tired of eating are plantain and Quaker oats. (Don’t even ask why)

I am craving so many things that I can’t access to from my house 😦 (Thank you Festac Town for being on the edge of the earth!)
I want variety in my meals and I want it now damn it! I want to have pancakes with maple syrup, waffles with honey, pizza with extra pepperoni, and everyone sweet and slightly unhealthy food! (I’m so sorry fitfam)

It doesn’t even have to be unhealthy but why is it so hard to find variety and at such close proximity? Do I have to travel to Shoprite in Lekki or Surulere to be able to find these things?  Why can’t these things be supplied to closer areas? Why don’t I have long and bouncy white girl hair? 😦 *sigh* I digress again lol.

I stumbled across the famous Chef Fregz’s instagram and let me just say that I am sad that I missed the Chef Fregz’s special at GET Arena yesterday and I will NOT miss the next one. Yes, that is how heavenly the food looks (and tastes from popular opinion).

*sigh* The only thing keeping me going is that I will be having lunch at the famous Orchid Bistro later this week with my best friends.  Only for this reason are my palates slightly appeased.

Peace, love and Coldstone’s Oreo overload,

P.s I tried to work on my editing a bit. I give myself a C for effort ^_^

(Please pardon my poor editing skills, I was too busy daydreaming in high school English classes.)

I’d like to start off with thanking ASUU for forcing me on an involuntary holiday which doesn’t even feel like a holiday, because I still have to read for tests and exams!!!

For the past four weeks, I have gone through various stages namely; depression, anger, sadness, happiness, etc. That’s what being at home will do to you. I have been turned to the house cook and errand girl. I can’t count how many pots of soup, stew, rice, etc that I have made. On the bright side, my culinary skills have improved 😀 I made this coconut rice two weeks ago and bruhhh if I could wife myself just because of how good that rice was, I would! Lol

Some days I’d wake up so sad just thinking of how the federal government was trying to ruin my life. I had my plans for the last half of the year sorted out. I was going to work as an intern with this big accounting firm for about 6 weeks then head out for summer. Already had my summer ‘rockies’ (lol) planned. Was going to visit one of my high school best friends and explore downtown Louisiana.

There’s still hope for that sha, thankfully I had late summer plans. So you can just imagine how I felt hearing about the strike. *sigh*

Anyway, thank you Teni (@Griffinstreaks) for forcing me out of my block, haven’t written anything reasonable in months. It’s sad really, because I usually start up a story in my head but then I’m always too lazy to put it down.

I’ve been trying to combine reading my school books and Americanah. And incase you’re living under a rock, ‘Half of a yellow sun’ is being made into a movie and I saw the preview earlier this week and I cannot wait for the movie to be out!!
Well I guess that’s all I have for now, expect more posts from me very soon.

With love from your favourite Oreo Rock star,
Chiz 🙂
