by Verdzekov Bernard

At times, when you see some meals, you turn to think if they are fake or experiments, whereas the meal truly exist. Yam and sweet potatoes with stuffed balls is a delicious meal. There was a day prepared this meal at home during a small gathering. I prepared the meal together with some other simple dishes like rice with fried chicken and DG. It was the first time I prepared this to share with friends. So, when everyone was in, and the program started, when it came to (item 11), item 11 is a number phrase Cameroonians use to describe eating time in an occasion or party. So, when that time arrived, I got everyone saying, “So Bernard you can make scotched egg’’…. I just laughed and stayed quiet. When they started eating, they were like, wow, wow, wow what kind of scotched egg is this? I still stayed quiet. At the end, that was the only meal that was finish from the table. And some friends came to ask me how I did that. When I told them that they just ate a combination of cassava and sweet potatoes, they couldn’t believe. It sounded very funny, but they persisted to know how I did it.
