Do you have any idea what it feels like to live in the middle of nowhere?
Like right smack in the middle of nowhere. As in there is Kakuma, then the next big towns are 2 hours away in either Lodwar or Lokichogio and even those are not really big towns. I don’t see how a place can be called a big town and they do not even have a supermarket. Lodwar does have one of those mini markets though!!
What does this mean???
- I have no decent place to shop for groceries and
- There are NO RESTAURANTS
That the nearest almost decent restaurant is about 2 hours away in Lokichogio. Now this is not one of those places you just hop into a matatu and go! You need to organize for transport with the office and get police escort to actually go there and spend a few hours then come back to “nowhere”. It’s really not interesting.
So…what is a girl to do when she feels like a fancyish restaurant meal? CIY 🙂 LOLS Cook It Yourself.
This is one of those meals that you find in those high end Nairobi restaurants, and you end up being charged a minimum of 800-1000ksh for! I believe this cost me like Ksh 200 maximum.
The Kyuk (Kikuyu) in me actually did the math; the T-bone steak costs about 380 per Kg I have mine sliced into about 8 pieces so that’s 48/=, the prawns cost around 700 for 500gms I used about 80 gms that’s 112 plus 1 potato 20/= that’s 180 plus 20/= for spices and oil. VERY ECONOMICAL, hehehhe.
Anywho this was a very tasty meal and healthy too if I am to say so myself. I felt like I was in a very fancy restaurant when I ate it so it’s great for when you want to eat out but are too lazy to leave your house and you will save tons of cash too and you can use that to buy a drink. I bet you will LOVE it. HAPPY COOKING!!!
NB: was a bit selfish this time only made a meal for one but you can multiply the ingredients if your serving more.
