I grew up in a suburb of Accra, Ghana and there was a particular place we the kids will go and purchase different kinds of breads. There was tea, butter and sugar bread, my favorite of them all was sugar bread. The best part for me was getting the bread nice and warm so I can butter it and watch the butter melt.
The memories from my childhood were relived last Friday when I helped my Mom bake a few loaves of sugar bread. My Mom has been visiting with us from Ghana for about a week and from the day she arrived I kept telling her I would buy the ingredients for sugar bread. And last Friday I stayed true to my word and got the ingredients. She also made my wife’s favorite meat pie.
Its been a pleasure having my mom over for the past week, we’ve had lots of conversations about the past which have brought back mostly pleasant memories. Mom’s also excited to see her grandson grow, the last time she was here he was only 10 months and now he’s almost 4.
