YESTERDAY - What Haitians in the Diaspora call leftover food

Haitians call leftover food "YESTERDAY" so you know... LOL... Here is some leftover Haitian rice and beans (diri kole ak pwa dòmi) with fried eggs (ze fri).

It's a good breakfast combination when you are in a rush to get out of the house to go to work in the Diaspora.

Call your Haitian friend and tell them "w ap manje yesterday?" They'll die laughing... LOL...

Any cooked food leftover in the fridge of a Haitian in the diaspora is called YESTERDAY, it don't matter if it's been there for two weeks.... LOL...

It is custom in Haiti to cook everyday. So once the food lasts through the night in Haiti, they call it 'manje domi'.

Back in the days, 'manje domi' would be spoiled. Haitians say 'manje a si'. but tha's because we had no refrigeration to store the food and keep it away from a bacteria invasion.
