rehat hujung minggu

Hari ini hanya rehat di rumah bersama anak2. Mama masak kuskus yang kami beli di Costco pada Hari Raya Haji yang lepas. Anak2 sangat suka kerana mereka pernah merasanya semasa makan di kedai Tunisia beberapa kali. Menurut kata Mama, cara masaknya sangat mudah dan ringkas. Kuskus adalah pasta paling kecil selain spageti, makaroni dll. Kuskus banyak digunakan di dalam masakan Arab terutama di utara Afrika.

Ini ada sedikit info mengenai kuskus:

Couscous
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Couscous or kuskus as it is known in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt(pronounced /ˈkuːskuːs/ in the US, /ˈkʊskʊs/ in the UK; Berber Seksu – Arabic: كسكس‎, called maftoul in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories) is a Berber dish consisting of spherical granules made by rolling and shaping moistened semolina wheat and then coating them with finely ground wheat flour. The finished grains are about 1 mm in diameter before cooking. The Levantine variant often misquoted as Israeli, is about twice the diameter and made of hard wheat instead of semolina.[2] Traditional couscous requires considerable preparation time and is usually steamed. In many places, a more processed quick-cook couscous is available and is particularly valued for its short preparation time.

The dish is a primary staple throughout the Maghreb;[3] in much of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya it is also known as ṭa`aam طعام, “food”.[citation needed] It is also popular in the West African Sahel, in France, Madeira island, in western Sicily’s Trapani province, and parts of the Middle East. It is particularly popular among Jews of North African descent, such as the Berber Jews,[4] and is eaten in many other parts of the world as well.

Couscous is traditionally served under a meat or vegetable stew. It can also be eaten alone flavoured or plain, warm or cold, as a dessert or a side dish.

Jika berada di Malaysia sudah pasti akan ke majlis Re-Union pelajar2 Alam Shah 87-91 di sekolah lama iaitu di Jalan Yaakob Latif (dahulunya Jalan Tenteram) dan nama sekolah pun sudah bertukar ke Sekolah Menengah Sains Alam Shah selepas sekolah yang asal berpindak ke Putrajaya sebagai “premier school”. Banyak kenangan lama di sana selama 5 tahun.

Di Seremban pula, ada majlis doa selamat dan persediaan sebelum majlis perkahwinan adik pada esok hari. Apakan daya, bukan mudah untuk kami pulang ke Malaysia dengan kesibukan penyelidikan di sini dan tambang kapal terbang yang masih mahal walaupun harga minyak dunia sudah turun. Kami mendoakan pasangan pengantin berbahagia hingga akhir hayat.

p/s: semoga rumahtangga yang bakal dibina mendapat keberkatan dan kebahagiaan berkekalan…hanya doa dari kami semua….
