Hello my fab readers, it’s another beautiful day(wednesday) and the hustle and bustle begins yet again. My sympathy goes to those that live in cities like Lagos and port harcourt, I can’t imagine what it feels like getting stock in traffic most mornings and evenings. Una dey try o.
Anyways; today’s dish is for those that do not have sufficient time to prepare those wonderful and time consuming delicacies for breaskfast before rushing out for the days’ work/activities. Bread&tea, omelets, noodles, oats, cereals etc have been served in most homes for breakfast because of how easy it is to prepare. I remember back in the days when I was in Lagos, most mothers fill their children’s lunch box with iya basira and Co delicacies. I’ve always wondered if they considered the health implication of feeding their children foods from those bookers, some of them have their kiosk set up right over the gutters filled with disease causing bacteria and fungi but who am I to judge??? Na condition make crayfish bend.
Here is our macaroni twixt recipe which can be prepared within 30mins. This is great for breakfast and even dinner and you can also add it to your childs’ lunch box. It’s affordable and easy to prepare. So let’s get started.
500g of macaroni twixt (I use golden penny)
3 big balls of fresh tomatoes(chopped)
2tbsp red bell pepper (paste)
1big ball onion(chopped)
2 large piece of carrot(chopped)
2tbsp of crayfish(blended)
Vegetable oil(1cooking spoon)
Salt to taste. Please use less salt in your cookings.
Hot water(boiled) store in a hot water flask to retain it’s temperature.

Your macaroni and water should be on the same level, you don’t want to end up with macaroni twixt pudding…. lol
