I've started getting ready

I did some shopping today for the upcoming month of Ramadan.
  • Soup bowls,
  • the biggest steamer I could find that would fit on the stove,
  • kitchen towels,
  • a serving pitcher for olive oil that has the measurements on it's side (not sure why I need this because I rarely measure anything - just go by eye),
  • assorted cool looking gadgets (that I will probably just throw in the drawer),
  • an apron,
  • two huge serving bowls,
  • and some other small things.
I still haven't found drinking glasses that I like. We go through so many of them every year that I think we have had every style that's being sold in the shops. I want something different (and less prone to breakage). Maybe I should just go all the way out and stock up on paper plates and plastic cups! It would definitely make washing up so much easier.

Next week is food - cases of tomato paste, milk, bags of rice, and other essentials. The prices are all going up and the shops will get jam packed with people. So the sooner I get it behind me the better.

  1. Don´t forget flour for the bread and cakes!
    And if you forget the yeast, you´ll have to bake tagella in the hot sand for hubby and kids all month long...
