Sesame Street: The Hungry Games- Catching Fur (Hunger Games: Catching Fi...

Hope everyone is well.

I can't wait to see Catching Fire. The Hunger Games was such an entertaining series to read.

Plus I love Sesame Street!

All I wanted was some chin chin.

So, I fortunately visited Avarstycooking.com and found a simple recipe.

I doubled the suggested measurements - afterall, I had to have enough for 3 children - and got to cooking.

My KitchenAid stand mixer did the heavy lifting. I rolled the dough out with my rolling pin to be an inch thick per the recipe's instructions.

The kids used cookie cutters to make interesting shapes, and Husband placed chin chin into the frying pan (which resulted in many a crispy piece).
Can you see the horse? The dinosaur? There's even a map of the USA in there (sorry, I do not have any Naija-shaped cookie cutters).

Bomboy made a propeller plane -


The Enforcer (who insisted that I make this post) made a cute teddy bear -

 The King opted for an umbrella - 


My daughter, TE, wants us to put chocolate chips in the next time we make chin chin. Wonder what that will taste like... I do think chin chin would work with ice cream though.
Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate. This is always my favorite holiday as we use this time to once again remember all that we have and must be grateful for.

Take care and visit Avarstycooking.com for great Nigerian recipes. I will be tackling her Sausage roll next.

I know it has been a while since I have updated this blog, but I just had to take some time to write this post.

It seems my youngest son, Mr. Bomboy, is in love.

We were watching Rhythmic Gymnastics and with everyone of the lovely ladies who appeared on the mat to perform, my son was quick to praise them with a "Ooh, she's so pretty!", "Ooh, she's very good!" and of course, several 'wows' were uttered.

OLYMPICS 2012: Rhythmic Gymnastics Source: Graphic News; Posted to The Guardian (UK) site's Data Blog

He took a great liking to Russia's athletes and he and his older brother, The King, are convinced that the best rhythmic gymnasts are Russians. They now want to take a trip to Russia to hang out with the athletes. lol! As if its that easy.

Watch Olympic Rhythmic Gymnastics live.
 Not sure if this lovely lady is Russian =)

Not going to speculate on this sudden love for gymnastics. Bomboy was only just talking about beating Usain Bolt's record (as he runs between the kitchen and the living room, ha!) but now, all eyes and all thoughts are on gymnasts.

If you are reading this, I hope all is well with you and yours.

Here's something I saw at O Hell Nawl

The Naija in me wanted to jump through the computer and onto that bus to whoop that boy's behind!

Bomboy has tried me in public and I have always handled him appropriately. Sometimes, right there in public. You should see the look on his face during those incidents. He looks around at everybody as if "You people are going to let this woman do this to me?"

If any of my children were to go as far as this boy did ehnnn??? Walahi, the cops would be called and I would begin plans to send the child to a proper military school in Nigeria. Yup, no tissue paper in the bathrooms...you get beat everyday...scorpions in the bush.. et cetera, et cetera.

Gosh, that mother is a saint, but we all know what happened once he got home, shebi?

Have a great week.

My daughter outed her stinky brother and all I could do was burst out laughing.

He farts, says "Excuse me!" and then tells you "Farting is good for you." (A nugget he got from my mother who thinks everything Bomboy does is glorious. *smh*

He rolls around in the mud after it rains and when I tell him to come wash up, he runs over to my mint plant in the backyard, grabs fistfuls and begins to rub himself. *sigh*

He has discovered that squeezing leaves from my lavendar plant makes him smell nice as well. *double sigh*

And he does not care if he smells!

And as for my daughter, who stays outing people, I shouldn't be surprised. She once outed her father in a terrible way at the book store. (Think flatulence, lol!)

These children sha, I thank God for them. They definitely make me laugh.

What about you? Did you out anyone when you were a child? Or have you said something very embarrassing as an adult? 'Fess up, I won't tell anyone. =)

Okay, I know that my title is unusual, but you have gats to listen to this episode of 'Busted'. I have posted one in the past titled, This Is How To Catch A Cheating Spouse, but this one takes the flipping cake.

All I have been saying is "ewo ohhhh" (translation "My God") as I listened to this thing right here. Chineke, God of Africa!

If any of you were thinking about engaging in a threesome, or a swap party (is that what they call those things?), please think twice. It is not for everyone and clearly, it can backfire!
