A day to slow it down.
|A day to hang out with family.|
|A day to eat some amazingly amazing fish!|
We had fish and chips for lunch.
We used to do it every Good Friday- like the whole family when my Grandad was alive. He'd tell us about the Fish and Chips back home, the way they changed hands over the years and this would be the opener to a few seemingly choice stories about the way things used to be. Nana would nod and smile - but never touch a piece of fish. To this day she tells me she hates it but her and my Grandad had this "opposites attract" chemistry and I'm sure, DOUBLE SURE she would not even put it to her lips because it would somehow detract from this love thang they had going on for decades!
The quote of the day as spoken at our after lunch walk by the beach:
"When we went for the chips & chips Mom...I really liked that chicken."
She assumed- I didn't call it a thing.
If she was a crayon she would be this super magnetic pink mixed with a majestic lavender laced with flecks of lime green.
She mostly makes my day.
We had Saltfish & Ackee for dinner. "We" means Him and I. The kids...Mac n' Cheese, Veggies and Dip.
It felt right!
Two things I would never force my kids to eat are fast food and Saltfish and Ackee. The first out of conscience the second mostly out of greed. (I should really find another word for greed!)
Believe the Hype!
