Growing up as a child in Ghana, Sundays were pretty special in my house. My dad will always invite his friends over and they would watch football. A key component of this get together was light soup. My dad and his friends will eat some fufu and light soup before watching the matches because they believe once their team lost, they would also lose appetite. It was this light soup that gave them life and passion to cheer their teams to victory. Light soup is usually the go to soup for inaugurations, festivals or just friends getting together for weekend.
