Oil Down

This me friends would be a most excellent supper. What with the sweet potatoes, green figs (bananas), okros, (okras), maybe some eddoes, dumplings and whatever meat you like, simmered down in some coconut milk with just a taste of pepper to tickle the pallets. You can sit on your porch as the sun sets and 2atch the village drunk stumble into his girlfriends house, listen to the reggae music playing in the club on the other side of the hill. Ahhh yes, nothing was ever better than a hot plate of oil down, chased down with a tall glass of passion fruit while you watch the golden day turn into a silver moon lit night.
