how are the women in reeperbahn doing? did one of the spanish prostitutes turn you severely in her bed to make you come to that conclusion>

any food mix-up mix-up is slave-food because slaves have to put everything in one pot to cook. if you talking about spanish paela, it was taken over by the spaniards after they saw what their slaves were cooking. they laughed at first but then found out that it was tasty and with the power of propaganda and writing, the spaniards made it their own.

We actually had a Progressive dinner at our school with food from diff countries. And there happenned to be Ghanaian Jollof and Nigerian jollof. Suffice to say, even my male nigerian friends were keenly awaiting the arrival of the Ghana jollof. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The worst was when i was asked which one was better by the nigerian girl. :lol: :lol: Even tho we beef all the time, no man who values his life can tell a woman and her friends that someone else's cookin tastes better. I simply went diplomatic and said i mixed em both together so i cant taste the difference. :lol:

i dare to disagree that jolof rice came from senegal by virtue of some wolof/jolof tribe.those senegalese dont know jack about jolof rice.they call their version cherpso why on earth does it come from them.who cooks jolof rice with cassava?senegal,so the answer is simple....IT ORIGINATES FROM GHANA :twisted:

I see when this thread started it was debated by kids, well jellof rice was infact started by the Gambians, it was then shared through West Africa now if u look at the map of west Africa u will see dat it would be impossible 4 travellers in those days 2 get frm Gambia or Senegal 2 Nigeria without entering Ghana. I went 2 uny with many Nigerians and was always fed by them and 2 be honest some off the best food i had were frm the Nigerian girls. I will never 4get the day i was invited 4 rice and chicken stew frm a Nigerian girl and a Ghanaian girl, i decided 2 take my friend with me. We went 2 the Nigerian girls place first and were treated 2 the kind of heavenly meal only an igbo babe could make then later on in the day we now had the same thing at the Ghanaian girls place. I have no joy in saying this but it was a no contest the igbo babe dismantled her, we did not even finish the food and came out with a lame excuse. When it comes 2 jellof pls Nigerians shld just lay low. When u have 2 mix stew on jellof rice then it is a failure.
