For instance, "Sister, where is my Christmas?" ... "It is cooking," I would reply.
This just happens to be my favorite meal.... yummmm.... This is what we had....
matoke (steamed plantains)
g-nut sauce (made from peanuts)
greens (bitter - yuck)
Then fresh, delicious pineapple for dessert!!!
The children walked around that night with stomach's protruding from their Christmas clothes and smiles beaming on their faces.
Bulging belly and fast asleep...the signs of a wonderful Christmas.
