Friday was the start of Eid-ul-fitr, a three day festival to mark the end of Ramadan. I've been feasting for the last two days and today was not exception. While I will post separately about the fabulous brunch earlier today, I thought I'd share some images of the various things I've eaten the last couple of days. Everyone loves a little food porn ;-)
I was at the mother ship for a few days and she definitely held it down. That buffet includes plantain, fried rice, jollof rice, fried fish with peppers and onions and chicken with peppers and onions.

The fried rice which I ended up bagging so I could take some for the road.

My plate also included a little bit of spinach on top of the fried rice.
A collaborative effort between mama bear and sister-in-law resulted in a nice breakfast spread one morning
Eventually I had to leave home, but luckily Ms. J gave me reason to be happy that I was back in the city. To celebrate her entry into her official entry into the mid twenties, she prepared a fantastic spread which I couldn't photograph, but was able to get pictures of my plate. Plantain, shrimp, rice and beans yummy!
There were also some delicious cupcakes. I sampled the red velvet and was very happy with it.
She also had a cake which I didn't get a chance to taste, but if it's like everything else, I'm sure it was fabulous! The jerk chicken skewer was fantastic but I ate it before I remembered to photograph it...sorry!
