Bread Making with Bibi : A visit to grandpa's house

Let me start by saying that these pictures are about a year old. Last February we went to my grandparents' house and Bibi was making kiln flat bread and I took these images. I waited that long because I wanted to get the recipe from her and try a home-oven version of the bread to post on the blog but I gave up on that. It's just not going to be as good.

Still, I wanted to share with you a part of me, my culture and my past.

Classic Lentil Soup

Winter  still lingering in the air. Days are getting longer, but clouds are still filling the sky leaving little spots for the sun to fully shine. While I don't prefer this kind of weather, winter is positively embraced here in Kuwait for it is sure a short visitor.

People go out camping, wear their heaviest clothes and don't turn on the heaters so they can enjoy these cold days before the not so awaited summer arrives.

Personally I don't like it when I can't tell 11 a.m from 5 p.m. I lose my sense of timing and schedule and it gives me a feeling of frustration and depression.
