    slms was just wondering what kind of food do you make and what other preparations do you do for eid? in South Africa the woman bake or buy fancy cookies and cakes. most people have a big lunch dependin which culture you from biryani,leg of lamb,roast etc is served. I have introduced myself in the Ramadaan sticky post.

    Muffin - We do the same, lots of cookies and maybe even purchase special fancy treats from Middle Eastern bakery.

    For the meal we will most likely have couscous prepared in traditional Algerian way. The sauce will be made in the pot and will steam the couscous which is in the steamer type above cooking at the same time. (Hajar, is there a name for this type of pot/contraption?)

    Hopefully Eid will be on Sunday so we will all be home and can prepare a feast and all be together. icon_biggrin.gif

    yes we will probably have eid on the sunday or monday depending when we sight the moon. On the 29th a mass iftaar is held in cape town near a lookout point and the sighting or not is related via a local radio station to all muslims. because of a tolerant acceptance of cultures if Eid does fall on a work day most muslims do get off work.

    Well I have been busy with cooking and grocery shopping and now since Eid is fast approachiing, I have been busy looking for clothes to wear for me and my family.
    My MIL made maamoul, and in my husbands culture, they are made by muslims mostly for Eid.
    I will probably bake dessert and set out snacks or appetizers along with coffee and tea.
