Playing with Dough

I have been seeing recipes for a pastry called chebbakia.  The form intrigues me but I’m not in the mood for something so sweet, fried, since I am mentally preparing to fast.  I wonder if they come out like a kind of doughnut.  But like I said, nothing that rich for me right now, still that form….  So I tried it out with my regular bread dough.

I should have put an egg glaze or something to give them a bit of colour.  The hardest part was taking a photo with my left hand—the button is on the wrong side of the camera.

Soon the fasting for Ramadan will begin.  As I watch what goes in my mouth, may I also watch what comes out of it.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
