FILLET THY FISH.

Hey darlings hope you are doing fine. Savory Saturdays will be dedicated to recipes, any kind of recipes. We all love our food good right? Yeah, i thought so too.  So today the first post goes to filleting your fish and how to go about it. Why would you fillet your
own fish?
Two reasons:
1.Better quality.
2.Lower price.
Buying whole is the best way to determine freshness and get the most from your purchase (and again the bones and scraps make great fish stock). Buy a fish with firm flesh that springs back when
pressed; eyes should be shiny and clear; and it should smell like the lake/ocean not fish. The gills should be red and slime-free. Ask the fishmonger to scale and gut the fish, then use these techniques to fillet any kind of fish you buy.
Step 1: Remove head
Place chef’s knife behind the pectoral fin; make a
diagonal downward cut through bone. Repeat on
opposite side; discard head.

image

Step 2: Remove tail.
Place chef’s knife where the tail fin joins the
body, and make a straight cut down through the
flesh and bone; discard fin.

image

Step 3: Cut Fillet
Starting at head end, run a fillet knife along the backbone in a smooth motion.(This may take
more than one cut.) Cut around the rib cage to
separate the fillet.

image

Step 4: Trim and debone.
Cut away the thin belly portion of the fillet. While fine to eat, it will cook quicker than the rest of the fillet and is higher in fat. It can also be reserved for making stock. Once that is done feel the fish flesh surface for any bones and pick them out. You could use your fingers or kitchen tweezers.

image

Step 5: Remove Skin
With fillet skin-side down, place chef’s knife at the tail end between the skin and the flesh. Run
the knife slowly along the fillet with the knife blade angled ever so slightly downward, firmly gripping the skin as you cut.

image

…and your fillet is done!
Now you have no excuse run to your kitchen 🙂 and get your fish looking this way…

…or this way.

Have a savory saturday food lovers 🙂

MAXIMUM MAXI

Back then in high school wearing long skirts that do not highlight any sense of feminity in you was an abomination. Ours being a Catholic school observed decency of the highest order landing us on interesting red pleated skirts we fondly branded “fayos” . Other schools enjoyed the short tight “feminine” skirts and that was it.
Anyway that did not take away my love for maxi skirts. I still adore them and for the many years i’ve been alive i still feel they bring out the lady in a person in the most chic and stylish way.

image

They range from chiffon to ankara/kitenge/kente to pure cotton…name it.
You might be wondering how to rock maxi skirts. Keep calm and follow this:
1. With a crop top.

image

image

2. With a basic top.

image

image

3. With a cardigan.

image

4. With denim.

image

image

image

5. With other prints.

image

image

6. As a touch of color in your outfit.

Hope you got inspired. The next time you think maxi think fun and style.
Till next time keep it stylish 🙂

FEAR OF A WHITE RAPPER

iBLOGalot

vanilla_ice80susacoat

I recently watched Ice T’s documentary Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap, and I found it to be a very informative and entertaining piece on hip-hop. I definitely recommend that you (yes, YOU) check it out, if you haven’t seen it. I was particularly interested when they featured Eminem. Ice T and the other rappers who discussed him couldn’t have been more complimentary towards him. Ice T flat-out called Eminem one of the greatest rappers ever. Ice T and Redman were talking about him, and they were both saying that they think that one of the reasons Eminem is so good is because he is White. He knew that as a White rapper he would be facing harsher standards and scrutiny and that it would be harder for him to get accepted, so he had to make sure that he wasn’t just good, he had to be

BUT THIRSTY NIGGAS THOUGH…

These thirsty niggas need beverage…i suggest a cold tall glass of refreshing “grow-up quickly” and a cool and dry stadium of empty seats for them.

image

A thirsty nigga is that type of boy because that aint no man who will blast off your phone with really stupid texts of how hot you are, how your tities are great, how he wants to bang you so bad…such shenanigan yet he don’ t even know you!!! Good riddance to pathetic rubbish. Some know you but now overnight realised how well you can satisfy their needs or nigga has a damn drought after his ass got dumped and looked for the first girl to pounce on.
All i ever think is “do i look like quencher” ’cause sorry homie i quench no thirst!” 
When you see these signs, thirsty nigga alert…
-He texts you 5 minutes after you gave him
your number and asks “ How you doing?”
-He texts you a few hours later saying “I miss
you”.
-He compliments you to the point where it
becomes creepy instead of flattering.
-He writes on your facebook wall then
comments on what he just wrote.
-He invites himself over.
-He’s always talking about wanting to eat you
out.
-He says I really like you, after knowing you
for less than a week
-He says I love you, after knowing you for less
than two weeks….etc
….
When dealing with a
Thirsty nigga you can’t be nice. That’s a rule . I know
how girls are, they always to try massage egos and stuff or
make up excuses to why they didn’t call. Don’t
do that. Mr. Thirsty is not sensitive, he may
be overly affectionate and clingy but he
can take rejection well. Mr. Thirsty is going
to be okay, he has myspace, twitter, skype, whatsapp, bbm
and IM to keep his thirst going until he meets
another real life girl that will talk to him. So
when he’s gotten on your last nerve tell his
ass, “ I’m not feeling you, get a life”. Bam! It’s a wrap. A sucker punch right in the face.
Because if you just stop calling him, Mr. Thirsty will continue to text you and hit your phone up like nothing happened. And just
because he stops calling doesn’t mean he
isn’t somewhere beating off to you. He’s just building up his strategy and he will call
again like “What’s up Stranger, where you been?” So trust me, just tell him to fuck off.
And if you are a Mr. Thirsty, its okay homie,
I’m not here to make you want to kill yourself,
but you’re not 17 years old, start acting like
you’ve seen tits and ass before.

I’m out.

ALL AFRICAN, EVER STYLISH.

Morning darlings, its yet another beautiful day in blessed Africa. You’ve heard how people who have never been to Africa talk about it? Like its a damn thick jungle with all ranges of wild animals strolling randomly lol! Well today am taking us to the stylish African prints. There are people who actually percieve African prints in a really negative way…an attitude that should be dropped like last century. Actually a few days ago a friend shared with us a link to a blog by some Njoki Chege. The Njoki Chege lady bluntly said “…i am not the woman to where those kitenge dresses when going to see your mother…” the hell??! I was perturbed. I mean there are people who still imagine kitenges ankaras and kentes are old fashioned? Anyway african prints do not have to be shady or boring…there is a whole lot of fun in it..
