Birthday Party

Went to my friend’s 30th birthday party last night, had loads of fun. She wanted me to cook a Kuwaiti dish, cinnamon chicken with rice and tomato sauce (machboos), and also meat lasagna. I kinda screwed up the rice but at the end it turned out well, never cooked for 15 plus people before. I literally spent 4 hours cooking and by the time I got done I was exhausted.
here’s some pics

I don’t want to sound mean or anything, I tend to think I get along with everybody BUT I hate people who latch on to you. I’ve recently met this woman who drives me crazy! she’s always pushing her views when it comes to taking care of my baby. As if that wasn’t enough, one time she called and told me she’ll stop by to drop some of her childcare booklets (ugh) then ends up staying 4-5 hours! oh come on lady I have a life too!

I remember one late morning she “stopped by” while I was cooking lunch. She stayed 3 hours and even ate lunch with us. She kept on chatting after my husband repeatedly hinted that he was tired. I swear I went up stairs changed my baby’s diapers put him to sleep came down stairs again and she was still yakking! I’ve also noticed she prefers to come around lunch time so she could eat. I don’t mind once or twice but NOT ALL THE TIME! and she goes for 2nds or 3rds. At least have the courtesy to tell me earlier so I cook could more!

Hmmm what else? oh yeah not to mention her misbehaving kids that drives me and my DH insane, especially when they scream and start running all over the place, and what does she do? NOTHING! I came so close of loosing it when her kid flooded the bathroom and kept on ringing the door bell after I told him not to because my baby was sleeping. The kid just laughed… ugh that’s it END OF RANT.

New York

We were in the mood for Persian cuisine and the nearest one was an hour away from us across the river from New York City. We arrived there around 2:30 pm and boy the food was great. After lunch we took some pics of NY city. It was a gloomy humid today and i couldn’t help but notice how NY looked so different with out the twin towers. A wave of sadness washed over me as i remember how many people died on that terrible day 🙁 how could such evil exists?
