Good Morning, Kuwait

Another gorgeous winter day dawning in Kuwait, with a high expected around 77°R/25°C today, while my poor family in the US is shivering with cold. I have a good friend who had three different family members stranded in three different airports, trying to get home for Christmas, and snow accumulating up to 18 inches while she prays for their safe arrivals.

Have a sweet day, Kuwait. 🙂

I will spend the day preparing for major meals on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Mom, I am making your Cranberry Salad. 🙂

  3. Heheh the snowflakes look funny on that beautiful photo of the sunrise.

    You are lucky to start your day off like that everyday. It’s truly a blessing.

    The cranberries look mouthwatering

  4. that is a lovely picture, and yeah the weather is lovely, a short respite from the bitter cold days to come i guess!
    the cranberries look yummy too! have never tasted one, so not sure how they turn out? they make jams and tarts too? the cranberry salad is a typical dish in the xmas menu?

  5. LLOOLL, Q8Geek, it’s time you start cooking!

    Oh Ansam, Jewaira and I want you to send us some of the leftover bloggerette meals that look so delicious!

    LOL, Jewaira, I have thought the same thing with several of these posts, like the Christmas tree with snow falling, too! I LOVE cranberries.

    Cranberries are tart, Onlooker, but you cook them with sugar and they are wonderful. We mostly use cranberries as a sauce/condiment to serve with turkey, but my Mom’s cranberry salad (click blue type above) is shake-the-earth good, and we can’t have Christmas without it. 🙂 My last trip home, my Mom – who knows I love cranberries – went to a lot of trouble to find real Cranberry juice with no additives for me, not knowing I drink whatever I can get here in Kuwait and do just fine. When I tasted it – no sugar added – I almost gagged. I did drink the whole bottle, because I knew she had gone to a lot of trouble and because I knew it was good for me, but trust me, cranberries need a little sweetening to taste good, IMHO.
