I know you all are probably sitting there thinking about how 90% of my posts are about food, but seriously…everything is so fantastic here. I wish that I could send you all a sample platter by email.
N came for a visit last night and brought grilled chicken and rice from the restaurant Al Romansiah that I talked about in a past post. Yes, that is nearly a whole chicken and probably 3-4 cups of rice. I’ll admit that I finished 1 half of the chicken and ate at least 1 full plate of rice.
We also had a cup of this delicious lamb soup (which looked an awful lot like spaghetti o’s, but tasted absolutely divine). It seemed to be a tomato type base with ground lamb and a few strings of spaghetti. It was great alone and also mixed in with the rice.
There was also a cream, a type of hot sauce and many slices of lemon to go along with our dinner.
After dinner we let our food digest for a couple of hours and then we enjoyed Arabic coffee with some sweets. A couple hours after that I made tea and we finished half a package of tea biscuits (which we decided are basically an adult form of the animal crackers that we used to eat as kids.)

Alhamdullah (thank God) for good friends and good food!
