Today is good Friday!
In Haiti, during the holy week, meat is usually not eaten. But that rule is mostly stressed on good Friday. (Vandredi Sen- Vendredi Saint).
On that day, Mom would have a lot of vegetables prepared.
- sweet potato
- breadfruit (which technically is a fruit ) .
- She sometimes prepared salads (tomato, lettuce, carrots, onions, olives served with a vinaigrette)
She would serve them with
- Any fish (salmon, smoked herring etc.)
Nothing was fried. Everything was either served boiled or with a sauce.
