‘Id Mubarak!

Lilandra and Chennette are tired. But we had a good day preparing for ‘Id ul Fitr. Which is today. Happy Eid!! We made things with sugar. And spices. And even a special dinner for the true beginning of any ‘Id day, which starts at sunset.

It is a Sunnah (practice of the Prophet) to break the fast with dates. And as we break fast at sunset, technically, we were breaking fast on ‘Id. So we pumped up the dates! 😀 From one of our old faithful Middle Eastern cookbooks, Lilandra whipped together ricotta cheese, lime zest and sugar and Chennette piped them into some delicious dates. We then topped them with cashews. Yum. Tasty treats for anyone who has become bored with plain old dates this past month.

'Id Mubarak

Tasty…and photogenic!

Some of us (i.e. Chennette) couldn’t distinguish who took which pictures on her camera. Because some of us (i.e. Lilandra) didn’t bring her own camera downstairs. And others (i.e. Chennette) were selfish and didn’t bring down her sister’s camera with her.

We have much more food and photos to blog about as we are successfully following the game plan. But that will be for tomorrow as we are dead on our feet (on Lilandra‘s bed) tonight.

  3. Thank you both!
    We tried our best to do some food-styling and photos of other items – much to the amusement of the few relatives who had never seen us do this before. ;-D

  8. I was thinking of a date nut loaf to use up any leftover dates from Ramadan but this way sounds delcious too…I’m torn between the two recipes now!

  9. assalamu ‘alaikum and welcome!
    date nut loaf is a great idea (we also always have nuts leftover after Eid sweets!) but you can always just try a few of these even if you do the loaf! they were surprisingly great.
