Eid Mubarak - New Dates and Old Friends

Looks like its Eid tomorrow. This last day of Ramadan at one halal meat store, I was reconnected to an old friend who was instrumental in my conversion, who I haven't seen in years. In another halal meat store I got to try fresh dates for the first time in my life. Masha Allah they taste better than the dried ones. So happy Eid and here's to both keeping the old and the new in our lives!


  1. Oh how I miss fresh dates. We used to eat them all the time in Saudi! Eid Mubarak Sister!

  2. Eid Mubarak to you too! I got to try even another kind of date yesterday..they were red and crunchy like apples! I just found out that those kind come from Egypt. Masha Allah so many kinds of dates!
