I thought I’d make the kids pancakes for breakfast. They wanted waffles. Not to be defeated, I came up with these.
As much as I hate Eid shopping, I must say I enjoyed myself this week looking at the window displays of what is passing as fashion in Amman these days. I snapped some pics and added links for my own amusement. I hope some of you get a chuckle out of them as well.
May your whole life be in good health! May every year you find peace. Happy Eid!
Pillowy pancakes stuffed with cheese or nuts
Gotta have some. No ifs, ands, or buts.
With your syrup so sweet
You make our Ramadan complete
How we love you to fill our guts.
Steaming fresh rounds made before us
Store bought to avoid all the fuss.
Taken home to stuff,
I get more than enough.
You freeze well, a definite plus.
Oh, these hot days of summer. They make a lady want to run out of the kitchen as fast as she can. But the kids want lasagna, so why not do what Mrs. Chips did and make this delicious lunch with minimal effort on your part?
1/2 kilo ground beef
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 box tomato paste
1 1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon red pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large bags Mr. Chips Nacho Cheese Tortilla chips (160 g)
2 small containers Zabadi with cream
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Brown ground beef in large frying pan. Add spices and saute for one minute. Stir in tomato paste. Add beans and water.
In a greased rectangular Pyrex dish, empty one bag Mr. Chips Nacho Cheese chips. Pour beef and bean mixture on top.
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven. Top with zabadi, chips and finally grated cheese.
Return pan to oven until cheese has melted.
Following the poetry prompt of writing a poem that starts each line with a letter of the alphabet, I’ve written what I consider the personification of the children’s book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I hope you like it!
