Shakshooka, anyone?

Shakshooka is usually our Saturday brunch. It's Sol's specialty. Tala loves it. She had been asking me to make it all week, and my excuse is that I don't know how to make it. Yesterday, Tala declared, "I will schedule a shakshooka cooking lesson for you on Saturday." And she did with her Dad's help, but I sneaked upstairs while they were cooking it. Don't wonder, it's the first day of Ramadan and I'm not fasting for medical reasons. Sol was kind enough to take care of us girls.

Yesterday, Tala had a slumber party at her best BFF Taylor's, along with five other girls. They watched Hannah Montana the movie, did nail polish, tattoos, and games. She had loads of fun, but said it was way past bedtime and the girls kept talking, hmmm.

On Thursday, I and the kids had a good time visiting with my friends, Ahlam, Shebra, Suhir, and their kids. Rayanne came back home with us and played some more with Tala.

The kids start school next Wednesday. We did school shopping today, but couldn't find everything wee needed. I also need to sign the kids up at Generations since they are not doing any sports this Fall. We decided to skip sports so we get a break and won't be running around like crazy.

It's one hour to iftar...


  1. Yes Please lol

    Aida and her cousins watched Hannah Montana the movie last week and all had a great time too :o)

  2. Yeah, Aida is in that age to be infatuated by HM and the likes. I didn't know she had cousins in the UK, that's nice.

  3. my uncle Abdalla lives in London, most of his children are married with kids and live in London, so they are 2nd cousins to my children :o)
