Just a thought

I was thinking that I would post all my recipes, not just the Somali ones. With Ramadan in a few short months, I think many of you could benefit from my cooking. I go totally nuts during Ramadan. I experiment all the time with new recipes. I also picked up tons of recipes from when I was in Saudi.

My Somali neighbor finally showed me how to make sambusa wrappers from scratch. For those of you that have never tried tuna sambusas you are in for a big surprise. I also make cheese sambusas.

You know I really think my husband is spoiled. I do not dress up the food to take pics. So what you see is really what I served my family.

Last night we had lasagna, baked chicken, garlic bread, and a salad. Oh ya, I can't forget the pineapple upside down cake.
