SUNDAY DINNER WITH GULPS OF NATURAL JUICES

Caribbean Sunday dinner with natural Jamaica drink is the prime time for family, friends, and passersby. Jamaica Sunday meals are celebrated throughout the West Indies and have become a family event where households build family bonds and recharge for the upcoming work week. Consider Sundays family togetherness on the first day of the week a solution to tropical islander's Sunday blues

The grand event usually begins on Saturdays. Special recipe ingredients are purchased from the local Caribbean supermarket in preparation for a cookout of authentic Caribbean dishes and healthy fruit beverages, especially soursop drink. Soursop benefits are well known by Caribbean's. Therefore, it is not surprising guanabana juice, also known as soursop juice, is added to the natural juice menu during Sunday meals. West Indian families would prepare freshly juiced soursops with condensed milk and a pinch of grated nutmeg, or freshly squeezed lime with pure honey.

The choices of tropical juice ingredients are critical during grocery shopping.  Mamma will make her Caribbean grocery store list in preparation for at least three dishes and natural Caribbean drinks. Below is a list of the most popular main course, domestic drinks in Jamaica and the Caribbean, side dishes, and Jamaican desserts combination. 



​MAIN COURSE

Stewed Oxtail 
Curried Goat
Steamed Snapper with water crackers and okra
Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning Chicken


​SAVORY SIDE DISHES
Fried sweet ripe plantains
Steamed Cabbage
Rice and peas or peas and rice
Potato salad


REAL FRUIT DRINK
Freshly pressed carrot juice
Mango drink
Sorrel drink also known as flor de Jamaica
Passion fruit juice
Soursop juice with condensed milk or freshly squeezed lime juice


​JAMAICAN DESSERTS
Jamaican Sweet potato pudding 
Bread pudding or Budin de pan
Jamaican rum cake or black cake

The Caribbean menu listed above are only a few of the combinations that are prepped Saturday evening for the upcoming Sunday dinner and a glass of natural Caribbean juices under the big mango tree. That is right, Sunday dinners are enjoyed under many family's favorite fruit trees. The bigger the tree the better. More tree shades are needed to accommodate a large group. Mango trees are the most popular tree in many Caribbean people's yards. The occasion is also enjoyed under a guinnep, soursop, star apple, or apple tree. Tamarind tree is not an option, since the leaves sheds quite often. I mean... Who would want objects falling into their plates of deliciously made Caribbean food? The tree list goes on.

 

While Jamaican mothers preps for the Sunday meal, Caribbean fathers will trim the limbs of the tree, rake the bushes, and arrange the seating or benches. Seating has to be carefully arranged with a reserved bench for the passersby. Passersby is usually a must, especially after smelling the stewed oxtail pot from miles away. Mammas responsibility is to prep enough to feed a village. If enough is not available, guests will bring a pot of their favorite Jamaican food and a pitcher filled with healthy Caribbean beverage of their choice. The only expectations for the pickini dem (the children), is to be on their best behavior and not to eat the fresh tropical fruits that is needed to make deliciously freshly pressed juices .  
Sunday has arrived, church is over (dismissed), and the school and work week lingers upon the horizon. Sunday grand meal with natural natural juice is a great way to spend the weekend and reflect, tell duppy (ghost) stories, nourish our bodies, and build relationships. A great way to complete the short weekend under Caribbean families' special fruit tree. A great way to ultimately manage Sunday blues in the Caribbean with your favorite healthy non alcoholic Jamaica drink.
