Two busy days, was invited to a big family lunch at my cousin’s in Irbid , loving gathering with lots of yummy food. Always a pleasure to visit my hometown.
Today started with baking Eid bread ( افراص عيد) traditional old kind of bread usually done in Eid time ,this time I tried to correct what I did wrong each time I did them before by making them thick and bake them in a very hot oven.Result was really good this time !
Then I cooked lunch ,Kabseh with hot sauce and fresh salad .
meanwhile I baked a beautiful cake for my friend’s son birthday ,chocolate and strawberries with ganache drippings.
I bet you’ll be dieting after the holidays, a few pounds extra are inevitable in these occasions. One can always sart a diet when done and enjoy this week as mush as possible after all you only live once.
This soup is awesome for this purpose,healthy and fulfilling plus it contains lots of fiber for those with bowel problems and of course everybody knows that oats are super cholesterol reducing kind of food.
Lunch today is Kabseh with meat not chicken and a salad.
I also made another batch of cream cheese with added garlic and herbs to half the amount:)
