Patate ak Lait, Bon Manje Creole

This morning I had a bowl of Patat avek Lait for breakfast thinking: "Hmmmm... Last time I had sweet potatoes boiled in milk (patat ak lèt), I was just a kid in Hinche Haiti."

It's funny the kinds of food that taste good in your mouth! It gives away the country boy in you dont it? LOL...

Ou pa fouti retire LABEG la nan mwen cherie!
Pa gen sa pyes!

Growing up in a province in Haiti has its benefits. Neg Potoprens yo ka rele-w "Neg Monn, Neg andeyo" but so what... You get to eat fresh sweet potatoes from the family farm boiled in fresh cows milk...

When I say fresh... I mean fresh... fresh from the cow's teats!

Ou Konnen Tire Bef? LOL....

Do you know what "LAPOY" is LOL...

Oh boy! You brought some memories back here especially when your parents sent you for the three months vacation period over your grandparents which for me was in Mirebalais.

Never forget those times where you get pampered by your grandma, uncles and aunts and those "patat ak lait" come very handy either for breakfast or supper.

Thanks for bringing those sweet memories
