rainy day,keeping kids occupied(photo heavy)
Saturday, May 10, 2014
well as today is a very rainy day and ayyub had several nose bleeds yesturday i thought it might be an idea to have a day indoors.which is not a bad thing except my kids get bored easily and when they get bored they get bostrious which one of the neighbours in the flats below us(notice he is not the one directly below us)irritates and he then complains.it doesn´t help that he is also racist and has lotfi on several occassion he should go back to the place he comes froms.up to now he hasn´t had the guts to say it to me,.i am just waiting for him to say it,lol.anyway back to blog.the kids decided they wanted to celerbrate mothers day today instead of tomorrow.in over words zakariya and ayman wanted to eat cake,lol.i agreed as i am hoping tomorrow will be a better day than today and we can go on a nice walk and picnic so fingers crossed for that.zakariya also decided they wanted to cook the midday meal as well. so here is what they made.
zakariya mixing the ground meat with the spices
forming the burgers and also meatballswhich are for another meal which i will serve with a homemade tomatoe sauce and speghetti.
ayyub and ayyman prepareing the carrot and apple slaw
the finished carrot and apple slaw
zakariya ingrediants for his salsa sauce
when mixed in food processor
ayyub prepareing the lettuce
finished midday meal
what i had.
notice i had no meat or chips.then a few hours later we had some of the mother´s day cake that zakariya had made for me.it is a chocolate and orange cheesecake.there are no photos of the kids zakariya making it as he wanted to surprize me.
from the side
and it really does taste as good as it looks.ayyub and ayman i think have made homemade paralines for tomorrow judgeing what stuff are missing out of the kitchen cupboards .tomorrow will tell.all you mothers with young kids out there i would recomend you let your kids help you in the kitchen from an early age so when they are older they can do what my kids have done.it needs alot of patience and you end up with more mess to clean up but i think it is worth it in long run.what say you?
thanks once again for taking the time to read my blog and a double thank you if you take the time to reply.to all you mothers,grandmothers and great grandmothers out there have a great mothers day tomorrow.take care and keep smiling.
