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.

Mint Limemade ليمون بالنعناع : Laymoon bel na'naa : The perfect summer drink

It's officially summer here in Kuwait...or the early stage of it as it will become progressively hotter from now on..Although  we have been enjoying  a quiet unusual cloudy and rainy weather in the past few days.

I know..., it's the beginning  of May it's spring for the rest of the world, but no..not here. In Kuwait it's the beginning of a dreadful, loong,  harsh summer.
