home is where the heart is

so it`s been a while since my last post  ... well what has happened ..... i`ll tell you.....


the kids are on holidays from school with today being the last day of them ... so we will be back to a school time routine .... yayyy for me ... not ....


well while we had the holidays my dad came to visit for 6 days which really wasnt enough but that was all the holiday tome he had left .... so how did it go ..... it was great and he loved it over here  .... he could speak no arabic  but ppl understood him and really liked him ... even enough to give him some free things ... believe me that made his day ....... he loved the country and insha`allah will come back next year for two weeks


but one of the great things was for me being able to cook some home cooking things that i grew up with as the rest of my family dont like it as it is to do with gravy  .... so what did i make well it`s mince with carrots and peas and onion .. black pepper ..salt ....and thyme and a stock cube and when really cook you add gravy to it to make it a little thick .... this is eaten with mash spuds ...... msha`allah it was like a dream for me and soooo tasty ...... and masha`allah i can make it more often as he brought me a never ending supply of gravy powder and granules



i also made some soda bread which i do make often but this was the first time i have made it for one of my family .... masha`allah he loved it .... but only managed a small piece as the kids went to hound on it
