Sunday morning found me in quite a beautiful place. Fall was in my presence. I allowed the fluttering breezes and the comfortable air to snatch me. Finally, South Florida is experiencing Fall (Florida-style). Yes, temperatures were flirting in the upper 60’s and early 70’s.
Of course with splendid weather as that, I switched off the air-conditioning and flung open my windows and doors. I was in heaven. There was one major thing on my mind as I breathed in fresh and cool air. I decided to indulge in all the splendor and have breakfast on my back patio.
In my humble kitchenette, I whipped up a small can of Jamaican’s favorite and national dish, ackee and codfish.
I had some left-over steamed Jamaican spinach (callaloo) from the previous day. I made use of same and warmed in microwave oven. On the side, there was a serving of fried plantains and boiled bananas and dumplings. I couldn’t resist, I had to add nature’s creamy butter (avocado).
A hot kettle of fresh mint tea completed my Jamaican spread. And, as I sipped on a cup, I my heart was warm from watching the paddling ducks. Of course, so was my stomach.
