It is too late for me to jet off to Barbados (ticket prices are a budget buster) in time for the holidays. Below are pictures of Bajan foods I like and will miss diving into during this season. For certain, some, if not all, will be served as part of the cuisine in every household for Christmas. Check out the links and try some of the recipes. You are bound to get a taste of Barbados if you do.
Pigeon Peas and Rice and Macaroni Pie
Fish Cakes and Steamed Pudding

Besides the foods, I will miss the warm weather, the hustle and bustle of Bridgetown, watching the fashion parade in Queens Park, and listening to the Royal Barbados Police Force Band’s performance. If you are like me and cannot make a quick getaway for the holidays, then I hope these few pictures of traditional Bajan foods at Christmas time, and the links demonstrating how to make them, as well as, listening to the local Soca vibe that is most likely being played on the airwaves there now, would be enough to encourage you to add this destination to your bucket list for 2018. It is never too early to plan ahead. Need help with your itinerary? Let me know, I am here to help you.
In three days we will celebrate Christmas and I want to wish my blog community, viewership and supporters a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.

How could you have forgotten ham? In Barbados, Christmas is not Christmas without ham. 🙂
