I’m back again to share with you how I made this sweet hot potatoes and plantain fries.

Back in my university days, hot potatoes and plantain fries was what I ate most times.The school I passed through never permitted us cooking in the hostel. I stayed in the hostel from second year through my final year.

So like I said, twas against the school rules cooking in the hostel. How we ate then was, we went to school canteens to eat. Meh n it wasn’t a pleasant experience for me.

Spending so much money on food that was not just well prepared. The only time I ate good food was when i traveled to my base or visit a friend outside campus lol!

I had no option, and never saw myself spent money, too much money for that matter o on foods i never enjoyed, I meant food that were not well prepared.

If you are used to eating in canteens ,you know what it means buying food three time daily as a student.
