first lotfi´s birthday went well.lotfi took the kids to see sponge bob 3d(and i didn´t have to go.woo hoo i hate spongebob)i stayed home and did some ironing itstead so i was also happy.then i made homemade donner´s at home.didn´t take photo though here is a photo of lotfi´s birthday cake that ayman and i made.it was a marmour cake that lotfi asked for.afraid i can´t show you a photo after it was cut as lotfi and the kids had eaten it all before i thought about taking a photo,lol.i did have one small piece though
over two days this week i helped my friend who is very pregnant by taking down her old bed and sofa on the one day and the next day putting together her new spring box bed and her new sofa landschaft with built in bed.both had no instrutiond with them even though they were brought ne.you would think with all the lifting,bending etc i did putting them all together i would loose weight but no i put 0.2lbs on,lol.go figure.
todays dinner we had vegtable rice which is ayyubs favorite meal and zakariyas second favorite after lasgna.so we have it often.here is the prepared vegta ble for it.
together i cut small or grated
carrots,brussel sprout,savoy cabbage,broccoli,cauliflower,o
nions,red/green/yellow peppers.not on the photo a rinsed can of sweetcorn.
here is what it looks like when pan fried with rice
then i did an aside of vegtable for those who wanted extra.
onions,mushrooms,red,green and yellow peppers
did rice midday as lotfi wants spinach rice tonight when he comes in from work which i will serve him some baked wild salmon with it.for our evening meal we will be having an indoor picknic.ayman wanted an outdoor picknic as the sun is shining today but with snow still on the ground and it is still cold despite the sun i out voted him with an indoor picknic.which as many as you know our picknics are a micture of healthy and not so healthy food,ll.why the extra veggie at dinner if others wanted it.if you want to see a typical indoor picknic.check out this old blog.though instead of the bean balls in the blog i am making meat balls made with a mixture of ground meat and bulgar with dried mint.i will also make an advacardo dip for the veggie sticks.
just something that made lotfi and me laugh .remember in my last blog i mentioned that the biggest loser was on that night.well as it was school holiday we let the kids stay up to watch with us.ayman being ayman(you know what they say about òut of the mouth of babies`)turned to me and said mom why don´t you phone up so you can be on the biggest loser so you can loose your fat,lol.i said that if i went on it i will be away for several weeks and he wouldn´t be able to see me for all that time.he ran over to me and cuddled me and said no you can´t go then you can´t be on biggest loser(now remember this was his idea not mine)lotfi and me looked over his head and smiled at one another.he then went away but he must have been thinking about it.he came back about 10 minutes later and generously said i can go on the biggest loser when he ayman is zakariya´s age.i thanked gravely while trying not to laugh.didn´t have the heart to tell him that i am hoping in six years time(how long it will be till he is zakariya´s age)that i wont need the biggest loser.ayman left the room and lotfi and i just burst out laughing.things kids say or what.hope it at least put a smile on your face.by the way the mans team won on biggest loser.
that´s about it i guess.take care and keep smiling
