Lebanon. Today.

One of the sweetest things about living in Lebanon (pun intended) is the plethora of religious holidays — with their specific desserts and sweets made on those particular occasions. Yummy. So, today is Eid el Barbara – St. Barbara’s Eid. We get to eat ‘Atayef and Aawam and Ma’caroon. and boiled wheat with sugar.(Thank you Mona for the sweets )

(Meanwhile… a day’s drive south, our families are hungry…)



  1. with all the diversity of religions you have over there, a religious holiday should fall into every week I think. No?


  2. ah, the major christian and muslim sects, that is all 🙂

  3. i see you enjoy your sweets… well enjoy!
