There are things I generally never ate as a child. If you ask me why I never ate them I really wouldn’t have an answer. I just thought that they were gross and generally anything natural or healthy I just did not like. I also had silly things I did not eat like beef!! Now this is a funny story..
When I was a toddler, must have been between 3 and 6, my mum tells me I always made a fuss about beef. I would state with authority that “mimi sikulangi nyama ya ng’ombe nakulanga ya mbuzi pekee” (I do not eat beef I only eat lamb) honestly there was no reason as to why I did not eat nyama ya ng’ombe and I was too young to even know the difference in taste between the two. But I was adamant about it so each time they cooked meat and I was in the kitchen they’d be forced to say “heeee hii nyama ya mbuzi itakuwa tamu” (this goat meat will be very tasty”) and yet they were cooking beef!!!!
My brother Nyaga also went through such a phase when he was around 6 or 7 years old. He was apparently, VERY allergic to the crusts of bread. He would make a big fuss and cry if you did not cut the crust out for him and he was allergic SMH. GOD children are stupid!! So like him and bread crusts I never ate sweet potatoes or enjoyed them till maybe 3 years ago. Now I’m learning new ways of making them like these sweet potato fries and this recipe today.
I do not really have the exact measurements for this as it was such a random make but I bet you will get the drift. I served it with string beans and stir fried chicken breast. Quite healthy I think
