  4. Oh Daggero, I imagine it was quite a party. 🙂 How did you roast the sheep? On a spit? In a pit?

  5. In the olden days ,the women in the family will stay up all night of the last day of Ramadan to prepare the Eid breakfast and to cook the Lunch. God reward them for their patience and hard work . Nowadays life is so easy , for the Eid feast all you have to do is book the caterers ahead of time , and voila you have everything there , you name it ,the starters , salads , hummus , tabouli the main course Ozzi( Stuffed sheep) , Kebab and grilled chicken and rice and stew and Biryani (Indian rice) and the sweets Arabic (kunafa and Om Ali and baklava) and western ( Gateaux and cake) and fresh fruits. You Also get water ,juices ,soft drinks coffee and tea . The table , chairs , plates and cutlery and the servers to help with serving and clearing .

    I think the Ozzi was done in a gas oven , because we had the lunch catered so maybe next time i will ask how is it prepared

  6. In the old days, when we lived in Tunisia, I got to help, Daggero. They came and got me for the sacrifice, which was out in the street. The local butcher came around to all the different houses and sacrificed the lambs early early in the morning. I was set to peeling, chopping and crushing the garlic, which was added to the sausage they made, along with the lamb and couscous. It was so much fun, helping the women. 🙂

    I think some people still sacrifice privately, in Kuwait and Qatar, but I think the law is that you are not supposed to, right?
