Easter Bun and cheese
Good Friday is celebrated all over the world. Most head to church to give thanks.
I was born in Kingston, Jamaica and even though I lived there for the first ten years of my life, I still remember Easter celebrations. When I came to Canada we continued to follow the same traditions.
For Good Friday we ate fish and it was usually Red Snapper or King fish. Yep, I love me some deep fried Snapper. I like it fried dry. Nowadays, frying is totally bad for you. In that case you should bake it. That's another topic for later though. We ate the Snapper with rice and peas. Ask any Jamaican about rice and peas. We love the stuff. Of course we have lots more that we could add to that list, lol.
Rice and peas(kidney peas)
So Friday's dinner looked a lot like this. Mom's style of course is always better. We all sat around the table, blessed the food and then stuffed ourselves. Course, once that was finished we tucked into the bun and cheese.
Don't forget the music too. We can't live without our music.
Now, that was just for the Good Friday. On Easter Monday we ate just as much but this time we ate meat. I guess this all had to do with some Catholic or religious do hickey. Anythow, all I cared about was the food.
Wherever you are, whether you celebrate or not I wish you a Happy Easter. One Love.
