Yeah Mon!

A couple of weekends ago I made Ackee and Saltfish! My MIL left me a can of ackee for me to try and make. I was a little nervous about it because it’s such a delicious dish and I didn’t want to ruin it. I found this recipe online and confirmed with my MIL and she said it looked good except for the tomato paste (which I still put in since I had one open anyway). It came out delicious!! And so simple! I also made bammy’s and tried it in the oven instead of frying them. I think I cooked them a little too long the first night but the 2nd night they were perfect and the 3rd night it wasn’t cooked enough. Oh well! I also made rice and peas to go with it all. We were able to have it for 3 delicious nights! The 2nd and 3rd night we added the patty meat I had left over from Sienna’s birthday party. YUM!

Ackees in the pan
Bammies in the oven
Rice and peas
Deliciousness on a plate!
