Morocco

Morocco has been a country I've looked forward to learning about with the kids ever since I saw this post over a year ago.  We waited until we had lots of flowers in the garden to decorate the tent.  The kids decorated, and I cooked.

We had chicken tagine pie, couscous, Moroccan roasted vegetables, dates, and olives.

Miah provided entertainment.

We also cooked shrimp and peppers over the fire to go with the couscous.

A beautiful parhelion appeared in the sky as we enjoyed our meal.

For dessert, we had homemade ice cream.

Then to finish up, we had mint tea.  In Morocco, it's impolite not to have at least three cups!

We did this for supper. Earlier in the day, we looked through some library books. The Bachelor and the Bean inspired us to have some yummy Moroccan beans for lunch.
