Here I am at 1:31am and still up and on my computer! Thanks for all the participation and comments for my last post. It really helped me and helps me. I don't know what is wrong with me. I mean I know but I can not tell you! I have to deal with this hiccup in my life as best as I can without getting so down and being mean to my babies! So, as I was starting to get responses to my last post; Ali walks in and tells me to watch this video he found on making Chipatiis (flat Indian bread much like tortillas but different!). I was howling. Then, we went to make some as I had not cooked dinner yet and when I got into the Atta (brown flour) I discovered it was COVERED in little black bugs. My maid left over a year ago and we had not touched it. Gross me out the door man! So, I chucked that and we used Whole wheat flour and it was not nice. Then, this kid got me to run him to the store to buy Atta and we came back and got busy with it. I left him once I knew he was ok and he made some pretty good Chipatiis! I don't know if he will ever do them again but watch this video, it is sooooooooo funny! Ok. It is now 2:08am and I just found this video. I had to watch just one before this. There are some adorable mothers sharing their culinary skills on you tube!
I hope you are patient enough to watch as there are two really, really funny bits in here. Yes, I needed the laugh and Ali kept hitting the replay button. Yes, I went in to help him make the mixture as the quantities were not mentioned here. The first batch, the pics will be posted tomorrow, were ok with whole wheat flour but I ran him to the store to buy Atta and the second batch was WONDERFUL! He likes cooking but not the clean up and I got stuck with it again but my mood changed with all the wonderful comments from the previous post and my son making me laugh! Plus, two hours talking non stop with Amal was great too! So, Alia out!
