Husband, washing machine, books. Also, living in the Middle East makes one appreciate water. No water in the summer equals dirty house, dirty body, dirty dishes. Because one does not take a shower or scrub the floor with mineral water. Running water is the most indispensable thing in my home!

I'm confused. Why not wipe the inside of one's oven everytime its used? We use the oven daily and give the inside a quick soap and vinegar wipe. Takes less than half a minute. Part of the after-dinner cleaning of the kitchen. Oven has never needed deep cleaning or a self cleaning cycle at all!

I live in Bethlehem (Palestine) where in spring one can order goat butter from a Bedouin lady in the souq. It is the loveliest, richest butter and so tasty with just everything! I looove it on soft white chubz (pita bread) with apricot jam.

True! My Palestinian in-laws taught me to fry eggs like this too - the best!

They sound wonderful! I have a huge batch of date syrup (date molasses) but no brown rice syrup, do you think substituting would work?

I once cooked a huge leg of lamb stuffed with fresh za'atar for very good friends but had forgotten she is super allergic to za'atar, thyme and the like! Once I opened the oven and saw her face cringing at the smell I remembered. I felt sooo bad! Not only for her (only salad and potato mash to eat for her..) but also for my hours in the kitchen AND me forgetting about her allergy!

Persian rugs! Beautiful, matches everything, available in all colors. Switched to Persian rugs after black/white combo's - will never go back!

Sounds lovely! But please, never use IKEA's elderflower cordial, it is absolutely aweful and doesn't compare to the home made or belvoire's one!

Nisiepie, you can dry stretchy clothes or woolen garments on a towel on the floor. They won't stretch like that!
