The girls made a lovely pot of Moussaka, a specialty Greek dish. We had this at Porto Romano last weekend and thought, wouldn't it be nice if we could have this on Baba's birthday. So, we looked up the recipe and the girls volunteered to cook it.
They went to their Khala's (their mum's sister) place the day before to learn how to make the Mousaaka. K.Mahani is a wonderful cook. She makes excellent kambing kuzi and other aunthentic Middle Eastern dishes that we so love to eat whenever she invited us to her house.
The girls said it was quite easy to make. So, I went to the supermarket and get all the necessary ingredients. It turned out pretty well actually. Very delicious! To accompany the Moussaka, we had Greek salad with Feta cheese, tzatziki dip, tortillas and some garlic bread. In a way, it was very Greek.
MrNordin loved it. My little Ultraman loved it too! He especially liked the candle-lit setting. It was the first time we all had candlelight dinner at home. With soft music playing in the background, it beats any fancy restaurants in town!
Overall, it was a nice birthday dinner prepared by MrNordin's loved ones. The only slack was the cake. It was a tad too sweet and PINK in colour! Oh well... if you ever thought of buying Baskin' Robbins ice cream cake for a birthday party, don't get con by the sales girl who told you that their pink heart-shaped cake is their best seller. It's too sweet, and for the price, I think you can get better ones elsewhere.
Enjoy the photos!
