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.
My mom makes a banging Jerk Tofu! Trust me friends when I say, I’m a meat lover and there is nothing that excites my pallet more than red meat but magic fingers mom has mastered Jerk Tofu and I look forward to eating this delicious delight every time she sets it on the table! “If you don’t know, now you know!” Jerk Tofu is the BOMB! Words of a meat eater!

As a child, I looked forward to Sunday breakfast or dinner each week. My reason, Fried Sweet Plantains! We were served 1 or 2 slices for breakfast or dinner! Although 1 or 2 never satisfied our starving palettes! Receiving 1 was prized beyond many other Belly Full servings.
In our family, plantains are cut in an oval shape:
Plantains, bananas mother. Is sweet, delicious, tasty, down right mouth watering! The texture can be soft or compressed. Slices, thin or thick. Fried until golden brown or dark! No matter your poison, plantain never fails to satisfy in flavor or texture!
