Christmas Eve 2009 (Part 1; Mansaf)

Rice being added to the Arabian bread and Jameed

Still more rice cooking

Osama 2 assembling the Mansaf dish

Jameed poured on Arabian bread

Chefs du jour
abo Zaky and Osama 2

Adding the lamb to the rice

Sprinkle generously with chopped parsley...

...and fried almonds

and voila! My favorite Arabian dish - Mansaf!!!

Dig in boys!!!

It got really quiet around the table for awhile...

(l to r) Ayoub, Osama 2, Mohammed, Ibrahim, Osama 1, Jim
ready to eat!

Add just a bit more jameed


How do the skinniest boys eat the most???
