A young girl pushes a wheelbarrow of boiled groundnuts through the city of Monrovia, Liberia. - With small change clutched in our fists, my sister and I would run the errand of buying boiled groundnut for my older brother who exercised his big sibling role to the fullest. The seller had empty cans, with labels torn off, some tarnished, some newly welcomed. The can size determined the price. The groundnut could still be warm from the sun, or maybe it was from the cooking. Inside, it appeared as if a purple light covered each peanut. I could shell so many just to fill a bowl with that purple. There were times I would take them in all at once, crushing the exterior with my teeth until I felt the softness of the interior press through the broken shells.

It's a good thing I believe in the 5 second rule because this shot was taken shortly before a gust of wind took my @tartinebakery Morning Bun, sweeping it off my lap and onto the ground. You had better believe I picked that butter lovin' pastry right back up off the pavement (dirt and other unthinkables be damned) and finished every last gooey bit. Waste not, want not. Or something like that. 🥐
