Eid Al Adha 2009

It felt like it was Eid Ul Fitr just yesterday. I didn't really have any plans as such . Prayers in the morning naturally to star the Eid day. I picked up these dates for breakfast Photobucket
I cooked some different dishes for Eid day , treats mainly for the family.

Then there was the Kheer

I also decided to make Tripe to get into the spirit of Eid North African Arab style much to everyone's horror. No one else likes it so i made a big pot that took hours but worth every minute and i froze it in batches all for me!

Photobucket Iused an Algeria recipe known by the name of Backbooka.
Next day for Eid i took the children to the Circus as a treat from me . We headed to Hyde Park , London where part of the park has been converted into a Winter Wonderland so we got a whole load more.

Masha'Allah your sweet treats look delicious!
I made Henia's 'rocher truffles' a while back and they were fantastic!- even better than Ferrero's. Insha'Allah I'll give the Raffealo ones a go this weekend.
