popping popcorn

so after a busy morning between taking kids to school and then having to go back after just an hour so so as they are doing exams and once finished they are let out for the rest of the day

then the house needs to be clean ... so everybody had something to do ..... and in order to get this done telly must be off and not switched on till everything is done this time lunch must be made and then clean up after this ... so you can see it is a busy morning ... so what do we do in the after noon well i like to relax a little if i can and today is a rainy day so what better than to make popcorn

so out comes the pot and this is the first time i have thought my girls to make it ....all you need id the popcorn seeds and butter ... oil... and salt ...... and place on the heat ... until it starts to pop half way through turn the heat down a littl so as to not burn the bottom of the pan .... and their you have it a big bowl of popcorn to sit down with and watch a little telly before having to get up and make dinner

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup
