(*Dinner: halibut with Indian spices and cilantro)
Today, I hosted a small Mawlid celebration for six women. I am not sure how many people do this for recreation (other than a capella groups,) but I honestly believe if more people devoted a regular gathering for singing in groups-- a lot of good would be brought to the world.
(*Dinner: tomato rice, yogurt salad, greens)
There were no instruments-- just several booklets of the poem and a couple of experienced singers who lead the rhythm and all of us followed. There were also no kids, and this is why I never go to these gatherings. They're kid-free. Now I understand why. (Grabby was the only exception, my sweet babysitter joined us to take care of Grabby. Mei went on a baba daughter day, and she immediately knew what this meant "Can I get some ice cream baba?"... Smart kiddo!)
I am no longer annoyed at not being able to attend such gatherings.
I will make an effort to start attending in the future, God willing.
(*Dinner:blood oranges and lemon)
*I have no photos from today's gathering what-so-ever. Instead you get to see what we had for dinner three nights ago and what I had for breafast the next morning. Why? Well, because I took the photos already, so you get to see them. Also, I warned you in the title! and here's one more:
(*Breakfast: mashed fava beans with chives and pita)
I totally ruined this posts mood with my food photos, didn't I?
