The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Standard

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award

My friend Lucile from luciledegodoy.com nominated me for this award in December 2014 (covering my face at this point but smiling). I’m sure she’s been wondering why I didn’t say anything about it, probably because she sent it at a point I was trying to decide how to handle the intrigues that come with the Christmas season, and the decisions I had to make at that period. If you do stop by her blog, you won’t need prodding from me to follow her, as it is a delight to the eyes. Funny I met her through an article, before I discovered there was more to her and boy, she loves her pictures, travel and time out with her family.

Rules:

  • Provide the link to the person who nominated you.
  • Add the reward logo.
  • Answer the questions your nominator has asked.
  • Nominate 5 other bloggers and let them know via comments.
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions.

Lucile’s Questions for me:

  • 1. What do you like or dislike about this time of the year?

Now I’m not sure what time of the year to answer for, and since you put it up in Christmas and I’m answering in the new year, I’ll do both. I like (actually) love the Christmas Season for what it represents to me as a woman of faith and more importantly, I get to have quality family time away from internet, too many phone calls (that’s why I didn’t reply you them). I dislike the crowd-syndrome everywhere, some people are just NOT NICE! I love the New Year because it is an opportunity.

  • 2. Do you know how to cook and can you share a typical and delicious recipe from your country?

I can cook…very well and I happen to come from the part of Nigeria where their ladies are really good cooks and home-makers. Winking away. I found a site that not only explains the process of making *Ekpang Nkwukwo which my tribe is well-known for, but added pictures you can check it out and when you come visiting, I’ll make it for you!

  • 3. What is old/aging for you?

I’m not sure I understand this question, so I will throw it back to you

  • 4. Did you know any of these nominated bloggers, and if not, would you check their blogs now?

No I don’t but since they are interesting to you, I’ll check them out. I can see your love of pictures replaying in some of your choices. * I did check the sites out ❤

  • 5. Are you mad at me because I nominated you for this award and you have extra work to do now?

No, not mad at you because you are about to get an award from me. LOL!

I nominate the following for the different things they represent:

Humour, Simplicity, Fun, Living/Loving and Diversity. Please check their sites out https://inbetweenpeople.wordpress.com/

My questions to them:

  • Who or what easily puts a smile on your face and why.
  • If you could change the world, in one sentence how would you achieve that?
  • What’s your favourite colour and why?
  • Would you tell your friend/family the truth if you knew it would hurt them?
  • Like Lucile asked me, Are you mad at me because I nominated you for this award and you have extra work to do now?

The art of making Ekpang Nkwukwo was from http://www.mybelledonfull.com/2012/05/18/ekpang-nkwukwo/

  1. Thank you for stopping by today. I have never had Ekpang Nkwukwo before, did you know about the rave of Ijebu and Ikokore? Now with My belle don full (what an appropriate name!) recipes, I am making in next week!

    Loved your response to the old age – can see Queen don’t particularly likes to talk about that…sister, sometimes palace comes with growing old, you know? 🙂

    • At this rate, I have to stop laughing or else, I’ll get a gaze from across the table! I think I’m beginning to get an idea what that question was. Okay, I also throw it back to you and i’m waiting for your response.
      By the way, blog the Ekpang Nkwukwo when you are done. I really would love to eat Ikokore but none of my Yoruba friends want to make it for me yet they put me up to making Ekpang for them! They don’t mind it daily sef.

      • W’ll see if I managed to make something that didn’t embarrassed the recipe author.

        Re old age, oh well, what can I say, grey hair says it all – wearing it with grace, it’s earned, abi?

        Please make Ekpang Nkwukwo for friends o, at least we can culture-share (if that’s a word)

      • That means I’m expecting Ikokore from you abi? It is not a royal command, just a humble request from theQueen (emphasis on the Queen) LOL.

        You know I love the the greys and it looks good on you.

        hmmm, when you are done making the Ekpang, you will think twice before encouraging me to do it for friends the way they want it. but it is sweet sha.

      • Ok. Ikokore it is! Fingers crossed for me on Ekpang. Just reading the recipe, God help me there will be lots of substitute, hopefully it’ll pass for Ekpang.

      • I’m wondering if you got round to doing the Ekpang, I hope to make some by this weekend…at least I will send you the pix. the Queen is not mean at all.

        Meanwhile expecting my Ikokore o!

  2. Face covered, to say not yet, Ingredients tricky. Can you still call it Ekpang without periwinkle? Pls send photos, hopefully it will motivate lazy me.

    Ha, thankfully Ikokore is open-ended date, eventually.

    • No need to cover your face. It is plenty of work even for an AK person. Yup we can still call it Ekpang but the Periwinkle makes it complete and a lot more interesting. 🙂
