Introducing : Mom In Kuwait

You may have noticed in the past month or so the new tap on the top ( Mom In Kuwait) and several of you have actually visited the blog. Well, I just got the final logo for the blog so let's give it a proper introduction.
 It has crossed my mind several times in the past few years to start a new "everyday" blog but I thought that maintaining two blogs would be tedious and I tried to have "everyday" posts on Instagram but I think I am more comfortable with the blog format. So finally over the summer I took the step and started the blog Mom In Kuwait and I have been posting kind of regularly since then.

Over there I share recipes other than Middle Eastern ones along with monthly favorites, product reviews, existing finds in Kuwait and other random stuff. The blog is primarily in Arabic but I will include an English translation if I find a post particularly interesting for expats living in Kuwait. So, if any of the above topics is of interest to you then you're most welcome to visit. And give me your feedback if you do. I'll be happy to read your comments and see what you think of it.

Iranian Barley Soup ( soup-e-gaw) : Settling In شوربة الشعير الإيرانية (سوب جو)

This fall marks our third year moving back to Kuwait after living in the States for almost ten years.

It wasn't an easy move; for we knew that the peaceful, quiet, easy, uninterrupted life that we led for ten years is no longer.

Spicy Potatoes بطاطا حاره : A quick dinner/ supper fix

I always get confused when referring to lunch and dinner. Here in the middle east we have a slightly different meal configuration. We have breakfast around 8-10 a.m,  then we eat lunch around 2 o'clock. But it's actually the biggest meal of the day, much like dinner in the U.S.

 We have afternoon tea and snack and then we eat dinner around 8-10 p.m which is more like a lunch meal in the U.S.  So I  always get hesitant to call our lunch "lunch" because people will get the idea of a quick light meal when it's actually more like "dinner". And sometimes I want to call our dinner "dinner" but I am afraid  people well think it's a heavy fulfilling meal when it's more like lunch.
