Haitian food in pictures

This afternoon I began making a Haitian meal to surprise Ysmaille. It took me almost four hours. The menu? Rice and beans with legume, fried plantains, and watermelon juice. I've decided to show the process in pictures rather than words.

By the time I was done I was so tired I totally forgot to take pictures of the finished product. You'll have to use your imagination.


  1. Wow Mel, I'm appreciating all the work you put into your meal and I didn't even get to taste it! We (Carmen and I) plan to attempt an Ethiopian meal next week. I'm hoping it isn't quite as labor intensive. But we shall see. . . ?

  2. Melanie, I'm impressed and the pics were beautiful...I could almost taste it. Any leftovers? Yum...fried plantains. I would say that is true love, to cook a feast like that.
