    We will be requiring a live-out nanny/housemaid to look after a 3 month old just for 5 months until we leave the UAE. Does anyone know where i can find one? They would obviously have to have their own visa.

    DD. Thank you so much for your recommendation. The day after I wrote my post I started haemorrhaging (TMI?)! and I had to be operated on as a matter of urgency. Unfortunately, I didn’t see your response until last week so please don’t think I was being rude by not responding to your message sooner. I’m recovering well and hope to return to the UK as soon as I am fit to fly and will continue my drug therapy at home. BTW, I have been just been (belatedly) reading your diary entries you posted throughout the Holy month of Ramadan. I enjoyed reading each and every one so thank you for sharing them with everyone

  23. Here's a recipe for a tasty Lebanese soup made with meat-stuffed pasta and a yogurt broth. Growing up, we used to consider this comfort food and we still do!Ingredients:​Steak - 2 ounces, dicedDough - 5 ouncesYogurt, Plain - 1 32 oz. containerOnion - 2 tablespoons, finely dicedGarlic - 1 large clove, mincedMint, fresh & dried - 2 or 3 leaves (Optional)​SaltPepperInstructions:1. When mincing garlic, add in fresh mint leaves and mince together. Set aside2. In a bowl, add onion, steak, a couple dashes of salt, pepper, and dried mint. Mix together3. Add some flour to a flat surface and roll dough into long stick formation4. Cut into pieces (1/2 inch pieces)5. Using flour to keep from sticking, take piece of dough and use thumbs to flatten it out into a circle. Add a small mixture to center and close it to make it into a moon shape, and then close it completely to make it look like a tortellini *See pictures for guide.6. In a bowl, mix 1/3 cup of rice and a cracked egg and set aside7. Pour whole container of yogurt into a pot. Using the empty container, fill it up with water and add that water to the pot. Add tablespoon of salt. Use whisk to mix it together on medium low. Whisk for 10 minutes (clockwise).*Be sure to keep mixing so it does not clump or separate8. Add rice and egg mixture and continue to whisk for an additional 10 minutes9. After ten minutes, add dough pieces on by one while continuing to stir.10. Stir for another five minutes and then add minced garlic and mint. Taste to see if rice is cooked, turn stove off and enjoy!Check out my blog for more recipes
  24. Here's a vegetarian version of the famous stuffed grape leaves! Lebanon is not only known for it's kibbeh and chicken and rice, but it's also known for having some pretty delicious vegetarian dishes. Traditionally, many Lebanese people would not eat meat on specific days mainly for religious reasons. As a result, people found ways to make their favorite meals without the meat but with the same amount of flavor.For this recipe, instead of stuffing your grape leaves with meat and rice, you will be stuffing it with tomatoes, onions, and some other yummy spices. Enjoy!Ingredients:1 Tomato - (1/2 cup or 1 medium) - finely diced1 Jar of Grape Leaves (16 oz) - rinsed1 Onion (Medium size) - finely diced2 and a 1/4 cups of washed Rice (brown or white)​Parsley (1/2 cup) - choppedSalt - 1 and 1/2 teaspoonPepper - 1/2 teaspoon​Olive oil - 3 tablespoonsLemon - Half*Some people have also added chick peas to their mixture. If you choose to, add about 1/4 cup of chick peas and use 2 cups of rice (instead of 2 1/4 cups).Instructions:1. Add rice to a bowl along with tomato, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, and olive oil and mix it well (Eva mixes with her hands)2. Clip the stems off of the grape leaves before stuffing3. Take a piece of foil paper and line bottom of a medium or large pot and add layer of unrolled grape leaves to cover (helps to keep grape leaves at bottom from burning)4. To begin rolling, add small amount of mixture to center of the grape leave (the rough side). Fold top part (side where you cut off stem) over rice mixture, then bring the right side over to center, the left side over to the center, and keep leaf flat and roll. Tuck leaf in as you roll to keep the shape.5. ​Add grape leaves to pot in a circular pattern, starting with the outer part of the pot and make rows until you reach the center (or if you have a pot that is smaller like ours, you will only have one roll around and the rest in the center). *Don’t pack the grape leaves too tight, be sure to give them some room to cook6. Drizzle small amount of olive oil and add a couple dashes of salt to the top of grape leaves. Cover the top with a small glass plate7. Add 4 cups of water to pot (amount may vary depending on pot size). Use enough water to cover grape leaves and half of your plate8. Turn stove on medium high heat and bring to boil9. Once boiling, let simmer on low and cover for 25 minutes.10. After 25 minutes, remove the plate and partially cover pot with top until water has completely evaporated11. Once the water has evaporated, squeeze half a lemon on top of grape leaves and turn the stove offLet grape leaves cool before serving. Can be served warm, at room temperature, or refrigerated.

  25. Here's a delicious Lebanese soup recipe to keep you warm this winter! In place of egg noodles, we use rice and fine noodles, and it's flavored with a cinnamon stick. This soup is our go-to soup for the winter and we have even enjoyed it in the summer, it's that good. :)Ingredients:Chicken breast (1-2 Pounds) (any kind of chicken works as well - Eva has used a whole chicken at times and pulled the chicken off the bone once it was cooked)Cinnamon stickOne Onion (peeled and cut in half)Water (8+ cups)Rice (1/2 cup uncooked)Fine Noodles (Sh’arieh) (1/4 cup)Potatoes (2 mediume sized)Carrots (3 regular sized or pre-packaged carrots)Instructions:1. Add chicken, onion, cinnamon stick, and 8 cups of water (more or less depending on amount of broth preferred) and bring to a boil2. While boiling, use a spoon to skim the fat from the chicken that rise to the top and add it to a separate bowl. Continue doing this until the broth clears up3. After about 45 minutes of boiling or once chicken is cooked, remove the chicken from the broth and add it to a bowl. Leave the onion in the boiling water, throw away the cinnamon stick, and let it simmer on low heat. If you don’t feel that you have enough broth, you can add 4-6 more cups of water (we usually do this because we like it with more broth)4. Peel and dice the potato and carrots into small cubes, or however you prefer and add to the pot of chicken broth5. Chop up cooked chicken into small bite-sized pieces and add to water6. Add uncooked rice, 1 tablespoon of salt, and a half teaspoon of pepper (more or less to taste). Stir and continue to let it simmer6. In the meantime, heat up 1 and a 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat in a frying pan, and add the fine noodles to toast. Turn them over until they brown7. Once the fine noodles are browned, add them to the pot along with any excess oil and leave it on low for another 20 minutes8. After twenty minutes, taste it to determine whether or not you want to add more salt and pepper. It's ready to serve once your potatoes and carrots have cooked, enjoy!Sahtan!Source: Eva's Lebanese CookingCheck out my blog for more recipes

    cold shoulder tops

    Mmm in all honesty I have not noticed anyone walking about outside wearing them, I have at brunches and at the beach so I am not sure. Abu Dhabi has relaxed a bit in the five years I have been here but no I haven't noticed people wearing them outdoors, that doesn't mean they don't . Sorry I wasn't really much help there.

    cold shoulder tops

    Hello again ladies Ok, so as mentioned in earlier posts I am excitedly coming back to Abu Dhabi with my husband for the first time in 6 years at the beginning of September. I am currently looking through my summer clothes and would like to check something with those who are stil living in UAE. I love cold shoulder tops, they cover the bingo wings, are generally not too low at cleavage and are cool and loose to wear in warm weather; perfect for 30 + degree heat. However, they were not really around in AD 6 years ago so I am unsure as to whether they are acceptable to wear walking around generally in public? I know that peoples perceptions of what is respectful to wear and not offensive can differ greatly, but a general feel would be great. SO happy to be bringing my husband to AD to show him where I lived for 7 years, I know that a lot has changed..which is just as exciting for me. Thank you in advance S
