Yam Plantain stir-fry


Today’s photography class was tagged ‘appetizing’. The lecturer had informed us earlier that the subject was food, so I made a list for my course mates so they don’t have to rack memories for ideas since that is what I love to do most. All along I had forgotten I had exhausted the options without picking mine.

I woke up this morning and couldn’t just think of what to do about my own food presentation; I wanted something nice and exceptional, but quick and not stressful. I got into the kitchen and noticed a quarter-sized yam… what can I do with this? Then I spotted the plantain. My oven is faulty; I would just have made a perfect roast. With some vegetables in the fridge, it all came together, yes!

So let’s get it done…
