Am I repeating myself? And if you can’t be […]

For my thousandth post, I’m celebrating Nigerian Small Chops. Finger chops. Finger foods. Bite-sized food, eaten conveniently with fingers in  a bite, one bite – at most, a few bites. Popular at events for the variety they offer and truly some of my favourite things ever.  And I can’t believe I’ve written a thousand blog posts. And […]
