Our tasty Banana Fritters treat”
Banana Fritters, a recipe passed down from generations! My great grandmother Aida Oats, would use old, over ripe bananas to make this tasty Friday treat. She never cooked a big meal on Fridays! As children we had a name for Fridays, (Fried Food Fridays). We looked forward to Friday every week! Our favorite to eat, grandmas sweet, tasty, banana fritters which she would serve with hot coco tea.
I love food! Do you? So many different flavors to lift our taste buds through the roof! I recently received some homemade apricot pineapple chutney from a child I love, bless her heart! She’s 7 and has the kindest heart when it comes to me! My sis decided to dive into “Ultimate Chinese Recipes” book and make some delicious Barbecued Chinese Chicken!

12 chicken drumsticks (we substituted legs for 12 chicken thighs)
6 oz spiced butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp grated ginger root
2 tsp ground turmeric
4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp lime juice
3 tbsp mango Chutney (we used apricot pineapple chutney)
First you make the spiced butter mixture, beat the butter with the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cayenne pepper, lime juice and chutney until well blended.
Use sharp knife, slash each chicken leg to the bone 3-4 times
Cook the chicken over a moderate barbecue grill for about 12-15 minutes or until almost cooked.
Alternatively, grill (boil) the chicken for about 1–12 minutes until almost cooked turning halfway through.
Spread the chicken legs with butter mixture and continue to cook for a further 5-6 minutes, turning and basting frequently with the butter until golden and crisp.
Serve the chicken with green salad and rice.

If there is one thing I love, its a good ole fashion burger! My parents are pescatarian!
Definition: Occasionally used to describe those who abstain from eating all meat and animal flesh with the exception of fish. Although the word is not commonly used and a pescatarian is not technically a vegetarian, more and more people are adopting this kind of diet, usually for health reasons or as a stepping stone to a fully vegetarian diet. Pescetarians often believe that moderate consumption of fish or fish oils, which are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, is necessary for optimum health, although vegetarian alternatives, such as flax seed oil, are available.
