New Toy

September 29, 2007

I (finally) bought a new printer! My old printer was an Epson and the colors sucked!

As a teacher, i need to print out my word cards and exercises, scan and photocopy papers from other teachers, and as a photographer, it’s better if i just attach my cam to the printer itself… so i went out and bought myself an HP Photosmart 2573 All-in-One series printer/copier/scanner😀

See the sexiness of it all!

My Sexeh Printer

Here’s what happened when I tried printing out a pic of my brother 3amer:

3amoosh's Pic

I got to finish all my work just trying out the printing, copying and quality of ink :p

How To Make The Perfect Fluffy Dough

September 27, 2007

(Warning: VERY Long Post! Pics included!) 

Obviously, I’m getting more into cooking.. I blame it on Ramadan lol
But It’s a fun thing, at first, I would only make sweets (remember The Flake Cake Gangsta Story?)…
But starting Ramadan I started to get into the kitchen some more…
I’m starting to make things I never knew I could like lgaimat, veggie kebabs (coming soon), machboos diyay (also coming soon, just lemme get the hand of it first), and the occasional fatoush (but that’s always been easy, ordinary salad plus ground sumac, squeezed lemon, apple vinegar, olive oil and cut up fried bread)… So surprisingly, food is being the hotness these days lol

I’ve had a pretty good history with dough, making fa6ayer za3tar and cheese, and (of course) pizza.. but I’ve never made the dough myself, it was always my mom and I’d work with her later on with the fillings…

So after one of those light school days, when I didn’t have a lot of preparing to do, I got curious and searched through my mom’s cooking file and found a recipe for fluffy cotton-y dough and I tried it out.. and it ended up quite tasty! (not kick-Pizza-Hut’s-And-Other-Fa6ayer-Restaurants’-Asses tasty, but tasty enough lol) Here’re the ingrediants:

Ergh

September 25, 2007

Don’t you hate it when you keep insisting that you hate a specific song because of some repetitive parts that really annoy you.. then you find yourself singing along to the damned song? almost dancing too?

Well the song can go “Ella Ella Ella Eh Eh Eh” itself!

Why ME!?! I like the rest of the song though.. can’t they make a remix MINUS the Ella-ness? just ordinary lyrics?

Anyway… so I don’t put salt on the wound, here’s Mandy Moore (someone I sorta like) singing a cover of the damned song…

 

P.S. I’m posting this at work (yes, I’m bored! I’m all prepared and my first class starts in two hours… damn my non-procrastinating personality!) and I can’t seem to play youtube videos, so tell me if the cover’s good…

3amoooosh Is Three!

September 22, 2007

My little brother, 3amer, is three years old today… I’ve posted about him in the past, making gangsta signs with his hands and making evul scary faces with his tongue out… Some people couldn’t sleep for days :p

Well, today it’s his birthday!

1st Two Weeks

Can you believe he was in the incubator for the first two weeks of his life?

Now he’s our little “girgasha” in the house, making some noise and keeping us busy lol… Other than my mom, Me and my brother are like his mother-figures lol so he’s very special to us…

3amoosh

Hmmm… I wonder if I’ll be posting about him graduating kindergarten? That would be fun :p

How To Make Sweet & Soft Ramadan Dumplings

September 20, 2007

This post is dedicated to Jewaira… she posted about Hard Rock Lgaimat, so this post is to help Hawra’a kick her Aunt Sebeecha’s criticizing ass… May newlywed brides never get humiliated again :p

Put the following into a big bowl that has a cover…
  • 2 Cups White Flour
  • 1 Cup Brown Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Powdered Milk
  • 1/2 a Cup of Veggie Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of Yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • A bit of Grounded Hail & Za3faran

– Pour water slowly into the mix till it has the texture of yogurt, not too liquid-y but not too thick either…

– Cover the bowl with its top and leave it for an hour or two so the yeast can do its wonders…

– 5 minutes before u remove the bowl cover, turn on the heat so the oil is hot enough when u want to dip the dumplings in…

– Scoop up some of the dumpling mix, making a tiny spoon with the tips of your fingers, and let it drop into the oil… (of course you have to let it drop close to the oil so it doesn’t splash on you)

Lgaimat

– Then just move the dumplings around in the oil, so they don’t become two-faced like it’s shown in the pic above… (one side light and the other side golden)…

– When they ARE golden, just put them into a bowl with syrup (sheera) in it, move them around til they’re covered with sheera yumminess and arrange them in a plate.. (you can sprinkle some gounded nuts on top if u want to too…)

YUM!

TaaDaaaa! bil 9i7a oo el 3afya😉

P.S. This is how you make the sheera/syrup:
2 Cups of sugar & 1 Cup of water, then add one squeezed lemon, some more hail (not ground) & za3faran.. (if u want alot more, then add 1 cup of water and the rest of the ingrediants for every 2 cups of sugar :D)

Let it cook for around an hour, with consant moving, it’ll turn water-y, but when u turn off the heat and let it cool, it’ll get thicker and become the syrup u want ;D
