A continuation of an earlier post : The Ants Go Marching
This year, I decided to make Eid cookies to give to my parents and in-laws and a few others. I know it would be a huge production. So I took a day off from work today to take on this daunting task. And I would not be distracted because the kids would be in school. Yeay!
So, after Sahur (early morning meal. We Muslims are still fasting), I got everything ready. Ingredients and equipment, and the butter needed to soften.
After sending the girls off to school, production began. Not easy running a one man show. I had hopes of enlisting the help of my son because he had no school today but can’t because he was at his grandmother’s. Oh well, I’m a multi-tasker. At least, I like to think I am.
I live in an apartment with a small kitchen, so I had to take the prep work into my dining table.
In the end, after about 5 hours of non-stop intensive back-breaking labour, close to 400 of the cookies DONE!!
