Yayyy!!! So I’m making baby steps toward that big 2000, 20,000 or even 2,000 000 mark (ambitious, I know)! But right now I am celebrating a massive 200 followers!
I remember when I first started blogging 5 months ago I thought people would just magically follow me because they’d think my shit was a lodestone of awesomeness!
I’d write, publish, then let it sit until someone discovered my blog all by themselves, they would get this light bulb moment and instantly know my blog even existed and come seek me out.
Boy was I wrong! It takes a shit load of work to get noticed, and noticed enough to even receive a like, much more a follow! But, I am trudging through, getting to meet amazing bloggers and building a great community with an awesome group of people who actually read my shit… BONUS!!!!
Sooooo to celebrate, I’m having a Potluck and you’re all invited! All you have to do is bring along the dish that you think I absolutely
should MUST have when visiting your country.
I’ll get the ball rolling! You’d think I would recommend our National Dish because, well, it’s our National Dish right? No siirreeee, nope, I like our national dish -which consists coconut dumplings, seasoned breadfruit, spicy plantain and saltfish- but when you come to St. Kitts you have got to,
must not MUST NOT leave this 68 sq mile rock, unless, you have tried our forget-about-the-calorie-counting COOK-UP!
This gem right here packs a delicious punch of flavour, filled with spices, herbs and just the right amount of seasoning (not salt and pepper).
There are variations to this where persons use different beans and add or subtract what they want.
Sometimes I prepare mine with lentils which is one of my favorite legumes, but most times I use another favorite; pink beans.
What’s in my Cook-Up:
Salted cod fish (we say Salt fish)
Pork ( that’s the pretty way of saying pig mouth and pig tail)
Bouquet Garni- Thyme, Rosemary (sometimes I use Tarragon in lieu of rosemary)
Herbs ( I think you call them scallions)
All Purpose seasoning
As far as measurements go, I eye ball everything! Preparation will be featured in a future post so consider this dish the debut!
Cook-up is usually popular on weekends because it’s like a party in your mouth and we all know what happens on weekends! (Partiessss, just in case you didn’t know).
Or it can just be the fact that it is a hassle-free one pot meal for lazy barely cooks like me.
So when you do decide to visit, stop by any restaurant and tell them KedawithanI sent you to try out the cook up and enjoy a 0% discount on your meal! 😀
Tell me, what are you bringing to the Potluck? What dish is a Must try in your country? Let me know in the comments!!!!!
