Making Aseeda

Today I celebrated the birth of the prophet Mohammed with my friend Hanen and her neice Freeya by making aseeda: a brown seed that transforms first into a liquid and then into a delicious goo. We were at work in the kitchen until 11pm last night swapping stirring duties as we waited for hours for the liquid to thicken, but it was a real treat when we woke up this morning!

    hmmmm……a “delicious goo” somehow that doesn’t sound delicious 🙂 I guess it’s one of those things you would have to taste and not just see. Love you baby girl…Mom
