Who would have thought a simple thing as Soda can bring back so much memory. This past weekend I made my way to my local department store, Kroger’s. While passing through the international isle unknowingly, my eyes gazed upon a section of bottled sodas. I immediately stopped to grasp that nostalgic moment I was blessed with. These were not just ordinary soda bottles, but the old fashion glass bottle of Fanta orange soda. If you grew up outside America, you would resonate with these sodas. Chilled glass-bottled Fanta orange was always the icing on the cake for every major Holiday we ever celebrated. And when you saw these special sodas, you immediately knew special guests were present in your compound or it was a special holiday. For me, growing up, Christmas and New Year’s was always Our All-Time Favorite Holiday with our Mother. She would wake up at Wee Hours at night to Cook Chapati (an unleavened flatbread, also referred to as roti or naan), organic farm hen/chicken (Kuku Kienyeji as we referred to it) along with Chilled Fanta Orange (preferably known as Fanta Baridi) just so it would be ready by the time we woke up. No one Knew when she went to the store to buy the Sodas nor woke up to cook. You were just awakened by the Aroma of her cooking on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Cup of Love WAKING UP EARLY BEFORE THE SUN, I WAKE WELL RESTED AND READY FOR THE DAY TO BEGIN. IN ORDER FOR THIS DAY TO BEGIN I MUST COMPLETE A SET OF MORNING TASKS. THE FIRST THING IS TO MAKE COFFEE BECAUSE LET'S BE HONEST, NO ONE WANTS TO SEE ME WITHOUT SOME NATURALLY DERIVED FRUIT IN MY SYSTEM, IT MIGHT BE DETRIMENTAL TO ANYONE'S WELL BEING. AFTER MY FIRST TASK OF MAKING MY COFFEE; IN WHICH WAS MADE BY USING A FRENCH PRESS, I THEN WENT TO WAKE MY CHILDREN TO GET READY FOR SCHOOL. THEY SLOWLY OPEN THEIR EYES AND GET OUT OF BED; DRAGGING THEIR BLANKETS BEHIND THEM TO THE TABLE, THEY SIT AND WAIT FOR BREAKFAST TO BE MADE. I COOK SOMETHING HEALTHY TO START THE DAY. WE HAVE FRESH FARM EGGS WITH FRUIT AND A BAGUETTE. AFTER BREAKFAST ALL OF US LADIES GET READY FOR THE DAY SO WE CAN PUT FORWARD OUR BEST FOOT AND MAKE IT A SUCCESSFUL DAY. I DROP THE KIDS OFF AT SCHOOL THEN HEAD TO WORK MYSELF. BUT NOT BEFORE ANOTHER CUP OF COFFEE.
