Chicken Escalope and Poutine.

Hello everybody.

Second day of Eid preparations but not cooking this time,a more tiring boring thing to do ,cleaning the house :(

Though we clean our houses everyday but don’t know why we make a complete clean up at the end of Ramadan, Eid rituals I guess !

As for dinner I  did a new soup “Menstrone vegetable soup”,really tasty,I’ll post the recipe later for sure. Plus chicken escalopes and poutine  upon my son’s request,but he ended up going out to dinner,well bad luck cause not a bit left !

I’m drinking coffee now then up to do some cookies,will post photos tomorrow.






Eid Preparations.

Hello everybody.

Getting ready for Eid for sure, as I can see from banancooking group many of the members started baking goodies !! كل عام وانتم جميعا بالف خير.

I started today,made Date Rolls,planning to do Rock cookies and something with walnuts if I have time Insh’Allah.

As for dinner today I made green beans and rice,though everybody didn’t like my choice but I had no other option, anyway they all ate it at the end,guess from hunger :)

Eggs Day!

Hello everybody.

Today everybody agreed they didn’t want something cooked,eggs and frittata was the option,though when I was done just before Maghreb prayers I regretted the decision. Too much mess and frying plus that I’m known to be not a big fan of eggs,for me cooking a decent meal is much more easier.

I made courgettes frittatas,fried mushrooms and courgettes flowers dipped in special dough ( Rita’s recipe) ,boiled eggs,omelette with hot-dogs,tuna salad and magdoos salad which is normal one with chopped magdoos in it.

all was good and tasty,don’t think I’ll do the same mess all together again though !

Kabseh :)

Hello everybody.

Wanted to cook kabseh from last week,but always got objection from my youngest cause he doesn’t like it,so since I have a hamburger left from yesterday Kabseh it is then.

I also made aubergine dip ( matabal) and a salad plus the hot tomato coriander sauce that I usually make alongside the rice.

No dessert today,a piece of chocolate did the job :)
