BAHAMIAN CORNMEAL PORRIDGE

Breakfast in the Bahamas is full of options and as a child my favorite was cornmeal porridge. This smooth and tantalizing blend of spices made my taste buds dance. This is what many Bahamian babies grew on.

BAHAMIAN PEAS N’ GRITS

BAHAMIAN PEAS N’ GRITS

Boy dis one sweet pot here! There is nothing like a pot of peas n’ grits with fry fish, plantain and coleslaw on a Saturday afternoon. Talk about heavenly! You’ll be lickin’ ya fingers all day. Oh, please excuse me – just the thought of this dish brings out the Bahamian in me.

A word of warning: over indulgence in this delicacy will result in what we call here in the islands a ‘peas n’rice’ shape (very voluptuous buttocks). Too many cultures this figure is not appealing, but to our Bahamian men it is as delightful as the dish itself.

AUNTIE RIE’S BAHAMIAN MACARONI N’ CHEESE

One piece is never enough. And even during lunch break at school Auntie Rie’s macaroni and cheese brought in lucrative revenues to a budding entrepreneur. Yes, I sold my macaroni and anyone else’s piece I could hi-jack from their lunch bags before we left the house. A side dish to a Bahamian meal, macaroni and cheese is also a regular accompaniment for sure on Sunday and at Christmas.

BAHAMIAN PEAS N’ RICE

BAHAMIAN PEAS N’ RICE

Peas and rice is a staple and main stay in every Bahamian home, a delectable and mouth-watering part of almost every meal. To prepare a meal especially on Sunday or Christmas without a pot of Peas N’ Rice is like breaking one of the commandments. So whatever you do please do not forget the Peas N’ Rice. Auntie Rie and mama would take turns each Sunday making the pot of rice and I seldom could tell who made it from one Sunday to the next.

A word of warning: over indulgence in this delicacy will result in what we call here in the islands a ‘peas n’rice’ shape (very voluptuous buttocks). Too many cultures this figure is not appealing, but to our Bahamian men it is as delightful as the dish itself.
