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 ^_^
