Thediarygame season 3|| HOW I SPENT MY MONDAY, APRIL 19TH, 2021 || by @michaelu40

Hello everyone, i want to tell you how my day went yesterday being April 19, 2021. I usually use the week day Mondays as a day off from work. For yesterday, because it was a free day for me, i woke up by 6.30 am. The first thing i did was to pray. After that, i started arranging my beddings.

Then i went to the kitchen to wash the dishes.


By 8.00 am i got hungry and decided to prepare a little breakfast for myself made up of 3 packets of indomitables with only onion and tomatoes.


I quickly sliced the onion and tomatoes. Then poured the indommitables in a clean pot, added a little water and then the seasonings coming with it. Then i poured the sliced onion and tomatoes at once too.


Withing 5mins, my breakfast was ready.

I had my breakfast by 8.40 am. After a little rest, i started cleaning the house. I usually use my off day to do some cleanings. So i mopped my sitting room and other rooms too.

By 12.00 noon, i went to the market to buy some food items. I usually use my off day also to make a well prepared dish because cooking is one of my hobbies. So for yesterday, i prepared one of my favorite dishes - fried rice with chicken. I bought the food ingredients. I came back from the market by 2.00 pm and started preparing the dish. Below are the ingredients: Rice (1 kg or 4cups); Vegetable oil (150ml); White onion ( 1 big size); Red onion (1 big size); Green beans (1/4 kg); green pepper (1 big size); peas (100 grams); carrot (1/4 kg); chicken (1 kg); knor cubes (2); chicken maggi cubes (2); curry powder (30 grams); mivina chicken seasoning (10 grams); salt ( to taste); grinded pepper (as desired); crayfish (1 handful); sweet corn (1 tin).

What a beautiful delicacy @michaelu40 thank you for sharing with us.
I like it when men cook and help in household chores.
It shows humility

Wow the food looks so delicious. I am tempted to say i can get the flavour of your fried rice right from here. The proces is really good and well presented. @michaelu40 hope you will invite me next time. Am sure to prepare mine tomorrow following your steps. Thank you for sharing
