memories....

so many good ones which at the time they were created, i deemed them baaaaaaaaaad

like having to fetch firewood from the seawall

drinking a teaspoon codliver oil b4 i get the teaspoon malt

drinking liquid cascara...yech
last nite i was talking about my nani (she was my new nani who joined our family whan I was about 3 yrs old)
and i something made me remember 'aromatic vinegar and lavender oil' which she used to rub on her arthritic footFrown

i called her my 'hop-along nani'... i loved her soooo muchFrown
dunno if this was jes a poor ppl thing...

anybody else used to add cooked rice to the roti flour dough?

another thing my mom used to do was grind shrimps/choka and fill the roti (like making dhal puri) b4 she put it to cook on de tawa...
I remembered my mom tried that boil rice roti thing and then stop because we didn't like it. This was to "stretch" the flour as she would say. We told her we rather eat rice in the morning than that. Gosh, life was tough sometimes, huh?

I remember her sitting there not knowing what to put in my brother's lunch box.

Memories of Guyana brought you a splendid bunch of ginnips. Ginnips are sweet and some are sour. It's a fruit that you shuck on and hope the seed doesn't go down your throat. We use to say when you want ginnip, skin your lips. Remember?
