Hello everyone and so so sorry for taking so long to write! A lot has happened but all in good time we will share with you all the details. Just as a summary though we made a trip to Africa where we visited Ethiopia. We were welcomed by people there and we left with the best memories. We are planning to go again. Till then...let's focus on cooking.
We are going through the last month of 2015 and I can't believe that the year is almost over...so fast! As we get older I think time flies even faster. It's like we are entering a different dimension of time :) December is one month that is all about the cooking. Christmas dinner, desserts, baking, and in general all the different aromas that are coming from the kitchen are just delicious! Today is a special celebration. St Barbara is being celebrated Greece. There is a tradition in northern Greece where they cook this dessert type called barbara (βαρβάρα). It is made of boiled wheat, raisins, dried figs, sugar, and roasted flour to thicken the mixture. It is served warm with sprinkled walnuts, roasted almonds, and cinnamon and it is usually eaten in the morning since it is kinda heavy. Lots of calories but in a cold December morning I can't imagine a better breakfast! Here in UAE, we put the AC down a little and we ate it despite being warm outside :) Try it and you won't regret it!
Kali Oreksi and happy names day to all the Barbaras out there!
