Ramadan Mubarak

The month of Ramadan has arrived. I've been so busy getting things done in the house that I didn't do any Ramadan shopping until the night before. And that was only to buy some meat and chick peas for the dreadful Libyan soup. We aren't completely moved into the new house - we're using both places. But I hope to cook mostly at the house so that we can make full use of the grill outside and break our fast in the garden instead of inside if the weather is kind enough. And grilled food is easy and something the boys can do to keep them busy right before sunset.


The weather has been hot and humid as usual for this time of year. It makes fasting difficult, but as long as you stay in air conditioning for most of the time it's not going to be too bad. Ramadan Kareem!


  1. happy Kareem, is it compulsory to cook Libyn soup to your family?
    there is vegie soup, lentile soup, I know lots of Libyan cooks varietyt of soups.

  2. Ramadam Kareem!

    I found your blog when looking for information on Ramadan in Libya, for our web site 'Look out Libya'.

    We are 4 expat ladies, living in Tripoli, who felt a need for a web site with more inside information on life in Libya. We started a few months ago and are still 'building'.

    The blog you posted on Ramadan last year is very interesting and informative. Would it be at all possible to use it on our web site? Of course we will put your name with it (or keep it anonymous if you wish).

    Warm regards,

  4. Thank you!!!

    Look Out Libya

  5. Ramadan 2013 is just around the corner and I am really excited. We should be glad as the month of blessings will come. My best Ramadan wishes to all of Muslims worldwide. Ramadan Mubarak!
