Where are you?
It is March 10, 2020. Am living in a quiet Town called Igun in Southern Nigeria.
Am eating Egusi Soup and pounded Yam with members of my family, Workers and Friends; as a Routine since the Bulk of the food is from my immediate Backyard. The Fish was caught from my pond; the chicken meat was obtained from the Poultry I built on top of the pond as a source of chicken droppings feed for the Fishes; the vegetables, Pork meat, Snails, and other products were harvested at my Backyard. For we produce almost everything we consume in the house from my immediate backyard with our own hands.
Egusi Soup and pounded yam is a very delicious combination of food that taste like Heaven. The taste is more pronounced when Ng (my Wife) personally take charge of the entire process as evident in Today's. Sometimes am left to wonder how happy she was when she discovered that I love the taste of her food.
The soup was prepared from blended melon, Palm oil, Pepper, Pumpkin Leave, Snail, Cat Fish, Chicken, and Salt. The pounded Yam was simply boiled yam pounded on traditional wooden mortar and piston.The smooth yam is rolled into small balls and combined with the soup before eating.
