Araby bread



We are thinking of driving to Edmonton this coming weekend. Are we going to see friends, well we will see friends but they are not the reason we are going. Do we want to go to Edmonton Mall, yeh we will go there, but it is not the reason we are going, although shopping in a huge mall will be a nice change from the tiny big mall Saskatoon has.




The main reason why I want to go is so I can buy Araby bread! Like my son calls. There are no Arabic store in Saskatoon. Superstore does carry some Arabic items, along with some pita bread, but a Greek bakery in Calgary makes them, and they suck!! It is hard to make them into a sandwich because they betfatfato (break apart). Lately all of us only want to eat araby bread, my son wants his peanut butter, cheese, hummus sandwiches all made with pita.

Since it will be spring break and my husband has a day off. Well make it into a four-day weekend, and we might even drive to Jasper!!! So that will be fun, I know once I mention jasper my husband will be sold on the idea!

Edmonton is a five-hour drive from Saskatoon. But hey spring is here (well not today, it is snowing and a –9 feels like –18 degrees, what the hell?!!!!!) this will be our first mini vacation this year, and next month when the weather gets nicer we’ll drive to Vancouver a good 12-15hour drive through the mountains, our dream trip!

So yeh the main reason for this weekend getaway is to get araby bread, but it will be fun tooJ

Wow!! A trip to get Pita bread!! I always have this bread in my freezer, but guess what, I barely eat it now!! I don't know why! I think that eating Araby bread by yourself is tasteless!! One day, I will have kids Inshallah, and I'll enjoy eating it with them:) have a safe trip Sam!

nido it is so weird how when it became hard for us to get we all started eating lots of it...in toronto i always had it in my fridge and i had so many choices of which store to buy it from ...my son learned the art of tagmees(dipping) and now he will only eat pita..:)
thank u:)

summer thank you, wow that is a hard tag, i will do it soon:)

Qwaider, i wish they would open a bakery here, i tried making my own pita, but it makes horrible sandwish(lafeh), and the kids will only eat it if it malfoofeh! so picky!!!

who's-sane tab3an, when it was plentiful no one wanted to eat it..it would sit in the fridge for weeks and then go in the garbage...it is all mama's fault, when we go to visit in toronto she always makes them lafat, and they like it better than toast bread..*sigh*
