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.

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.
