    Cooking the Zambian way made easy

    Hi my people! Despite having all the delicious foods around the world, nothing can beat certain meals that you grew up eating, in my case it’s Ifisashi, a zambian native vegetable relish that is made from certain eatable leaves and mixed with powdered peanuts, it can be pumpkin leaves, cassava leaves, leaves from sweet potatoes etc. The process of preparing the powdered peanuts can take forever, first you have to dry the groundnuts in the sun then dry fry them before you can pound them in a ibende (a large wooden mortar) turning them into powder.

    After the pounding, you have to sieve the peanuts, this whole process can take a full day but not in my case, because I realised I can just use peanut butter. Check out my YouTube video and see how i prepare my spinach ifisashi.

     

    Ubwali bwa Nama ne fisashi is what we have here.
    A typical Zambian dish, rich in protein and taste.

    Ingredients:

    1 half packet young spinach leaves
    1 small onion -diced
    1 large tomato -diced
    1 -1/2 tbs peanut butter
    Salt or chicken stock
    Oil of your choice

    For the rest see YouTube.

    I hope you enjoy it! If you have any questions, just drop me a comment.

    With love- Fridalicious

    So damn happy

    OMG ! i cant believe this just happened! After being hacked for such a long time,today my blogg is working again. Been fighting back and fourth with the Word press but now here i ’am… i’am so damn happy! Question is where do i begin?! Too much to share already! Ok first of all i hope you all doing well out there despite the covid situation. I know it’s hard times for all of us. I Can say the lockdown/quarantine was not so fun in the end. Here in Spain we had it from 15th march to 11th may. In the begining it felt like nothing but the last weeks were tough. However i did manage to keep the days going by doing different activities. See my youtube channel and let’s catch up from there.

    Since the blogg had been out of function for this long, due to the hacking i decided to make a few youtube videos, i love doing it too but i missed to write so much. I hope this time there will be NO more hacking. Since this is just a come back post i will end here and come back later with more fun posts. I’am really just so happy to be back!

    Have a delicious day!

    Quality time

    I arrived in Sweden, and it was a smooth flight, but first let’s go back to my time of transit in Frankfurt. Nothing much happened there, i ate a sallad and ofcourse took a glass of wine to it. “Yawn

    I did not feel that vibe at this AirPort, i Seriously do love and enjoy being at AirPorts but Frankfurt for me was quite boring, which on the other hand was actually a very good idea because i had time to study my Spanish instead. Yippi..

    Brunch timez up

    Yesterday was super brunch day. I love to cook for my family and friends, and i do it with so much passion because i want people to enjoy what i serve them as well as to see that they are having a good time.

    I love preparing and being creative, it gives me so much positive energy, i could go on and on.

    There are two rooms where i can never be tired. One is in the kitchen and the other is a secret. * wink*

    I have helped/hosted a few friends functions like baby showers, birthdays, cocktail parties and all have turned out to be successful.

    I will be launching my first ever winter mega brunch this year. I will tell you more about it in one of the upcoming posts.

    Thinking outside of the box

    Fabrics doesn’t make exquisite dresses, it is Property of Kyolaba through thinking outside of the box.

    She started without being able to sew, over the months she has taught herself how to sketch, cut and sew. And today it has become her passion.

    The most interesting part of it is that all ides are born when she is asleep .

    The main idea of Property of Kyolaba is to always think out side of the box. To empower, inspire and motivate girls and women to be exactly who they want to be.

    Property of Kyolaba had it’s first catwalk in Janauri this year in Växjö (Sweden) on Culture Day in the Art Hall, and it was a success.

    The beautiful and unique twisted pieces did catch the attention of many and put POK in the spotlight.

    Just yesterday 27/07 was the second catwalk at the African Cultural Festival in Malmö People’s Park which was even more eye catching.

    The new pieces are incredibly done, the details are just orgasmic.

    The models looked fantastic and they all rocked the stage. It was obvious they were feeling the positive and strong energy from the designer herself Harriet Kyolaba.

    Feel free to follow and like the Facebook or instagram pages #propertyofkyolaba for more pictures of and videos. You can also get to see the full video of of the first catwalk.

    Last but not least, this Friday, POK has it’s third catwalk at the HX festival in Helsingborg. Which is absolutely amazing.

    In her own words

    “With my clothes I want to inspire all women to dare to have color …. My clothes are NOT specifically African, but a combination of Africa and Europe. I’am inspired by both worlds”. – #propertyofkyolaba

    Feeling Fly In AFA Sports

    Get your pride on, wear AFA. The name AFA Sports means “Africa for Africa” and represents a concept that highlights Africa’s sports development and National pride.

    AFA Sports represents African sports and pride, it was established to showcase the pride & interest of the continent and this lays as the foundation of the brand. It was created to give the Nigerian & the African sports industry the attention and quality they deserve; by creating a range of products that have been adapted to the climate, kinetics and colors that are unique to African social context. afasports.com

    AFA sports was created as a sports merchandise brand for Africa to cater to grassroot sports that are neglected by the international brands who would rather not build from the ground up in an emerging market.

    “Our style inspirations are intrinsically African, we focused on the uniqueness and the dynamism of the continent to develop the right texture of fabric and colours on display”Ugo Udezue, CEO of AFA

    Get your Pride on, think Africa. https://afasports.com -Instagram @afasports #AFA4africa
