Belated Eid Mubarak

Highway Masjid at Sunset
It’s been a week and I never got around to posting for Eid ul Fitr. But while I made sweets and was more active in the days leading up to Eid, I spent Eid and about 2 or 3 days after that, sleeping. Followed by some nights of insomnia. Fun stuff. Apparently this is normal convalescence. Thought convalescence only happened in books, but such is my life right now.

The picture at the top is the Seemab Memorial Masjid, also called Highway Masjid since it’s conveniently located on the highway in Charlieville and therefore a convenient place to stop on the way North or South when it’s time for Salaah (one of the 5 daily prayers). Sunset picture.

Anyway, I did celebrate amidst all that sleeping. And the food we made was great. So here are the pics:

Row 1 – Accra (with saltfish); Bakalva rolls (with walnuts)

Row 2 – Halwah (with rice flour); Basboosa (semolina and syrup)

Row 3 – Lamb Biriyani; Lamb Kibbeh

accras - again Baklava rolls
Rice Halwah basboosa
Lamb Biriyani Lamb Kibbeh

  2. I remember when you used to cook all these lovely things in our ‘over-subscribed’ busy kitchen. Very impressive, as usual.

    My family’s lucky I managed to defrost some of my pasta sauce tonight. 😉

  3. Well, this was a special occasion. And there were other people – for example I did nothing with the kibbeh and only tasted the biriyani. Mom did them, and the halwah and accra. If I was in my flat in Guyana, it would take a lot of effort to cook for and by myself. Sigh.

  5. I did say “the food WE made”. I was only pointing out the things that Mom did all by herself with which I (and you) had nothing to do. But for clarity, LILANDRA made things too.

  6. Yes.

    No Chocolate Hearts of Darkness for you.

  7. Well, since I am not slavishly addicted to chocolate – I imagine I shall survive.

  10. You two didn’t happen to share a room growing up did you? I can’t imagine you both getting out alive if you did! 😉

  11. Of course we did. And she always tried killing me.

  12. She was a SNIFFLER!! Can you imagine how hard it is to sleep with a sniffler in the room?

  13. You just are bad bad bad and terrorised me.
