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 :)
