Caribbean Day

Here are the few pictures I took of our Caribbean Day meal we enjoyed at the end of November.

The main meal was "Betty's Browned-down Chicken" and "Rice and Peas."  Both recipes are from Trinidad and Tobago.

The chicken was most tasty but the rice didn't win over everyone in the family.  It is cooked in coconut milk and not everyone enjoys that flavor.  We learned not only that, but that in the Caribbean beans are called "peas."

For dessert the girls fixed Banana Fritters which everyone enjoyed.  I really liked them, they were more like a pancake texture than a banana slice coated and fried.
