Dates & Nuts power energy balls recipe - cookin5m2-PIN-2

Another clown tour. Tiring rehearsals and exhausting performances. A big thrill and tremendous amount of joy.

This time, we are supported by the Swiss Embassy to perform for children around Lebanon in selected locations. We began last week and we did five days in a row following one last full day of rehearsals a day before. Our first week was in the Bekaa. Our daily trip had a breakfast stop in the morning and late lunch stop and evaluation on the way back.

Meghlé (Spiced Levantine Pudding) and The Birth of More New Members

In case you didn’t know, we had a recent delivery at the family of 6 new members. It’s Olly, guys, Olly the cat. She gave birth to SIX CUTE KITTENS last Sunday giving us a shock for the number of kitten she had been carrying. Never a dull moment passed for Olly. She climbed the screen door, jumped on the street, played, went crazy and all sort of things a young cat would do. BUT SHE HAD SIX KITTENS GROWING INSIDE HER!!!

I have shared photos on Instagram of food, places and people. Many others were not shared, especially those taken using the camera. As I sort the images now, I recall the memories and the feelings and try to express them here in plain text.

Sri Lanka - Kandy 2014-49

This impulsive trip took a really good turn. It gave me wonderful moments in a breathtaking country (from what I saw and chose to preserve in my memory) for its landscapes, sceneries, people, culture, and of course food. At most times, it took my mind away from all the worries I got there with. I was hungry for new things, for a break from the routine and it was nothing short of that.

Creamy Mushroom Soup and a very cold winter

Creamy mushroom soup-cookin5m2-3
Isn’t it a lovely winter?
Those cosy nights with a blanket, soup and a warm drink to keep you warm. It’s entertaining to listen to the sound of rain droplets tumbling down the roofs and the messing neighborhoods too. Don’t you love this season too?
(Editor’s notes: please don’t burst his bubble and tell him it hasn’t rained in a while and temperatures are rising) Continue reading
