Disney Princess Pasta to Make You Smile

A few weeks ago I found this amazing Disney princess pasta. HOW COOL IS IT?

There’s Cinderella, Belle, Aurora, and Snow White. There’s also Cinderella’s carriage and castle.

Unfortunately, the poor princesses die quickly, and as soon as you add any sauce.

Still really awesome.

On February

February was for winter, February was for spring.

Jordan is quite stunning these days. Don’t spend your weekend cooped up — go out on a road trip. My favorite place in February was Qasr il Abed in Eraq il Ameer, and you can buy fresh beets from the kids there as well.

ancient stones
Ancient stones scattered all over the grass in Iraq Al-Amir. The mansion, believed to have been built by Hyrcanus of Jerusalem, governor of Ammon, dates from approximately 200BC. The burial caves across from the ruins date back to the copper age. THAT’S REALLY OLD.

Breakfast recipe: Arugula cheese rolls

Breakfast idea, elvish style: Spread half a teaspoon of Circassian cheese on an arugula leaf, and add a diced avocado. Drizzle virgin olive oil, sprinkle some lemon and salt, and add some black sesame seeds.

Roll and eat.

Enjoy.

Once Upon a Lovely December

Although I’m really not a wintery person, December is always nice because it’s full of feasts. This December was extra special though :)


Kitchenette’s AWESOME calendar


This December, I wore this beautiful embroidered Palestinian dress that my grandmother made for my aunt in the 60s, when my aunt was 14. I love the simplicity of it, and the white fabric. I dropped by to show it to my aunt and grandma before my dinner. I was bequeathed this dress when I was 14 myself (’99), and they forgot all about it. They were so ecstatic!


So excited for 2015, aren’t we?
