Date Cookies: the Sumerian's also relied on dates as their number one fruit. These cookies were amazingly flavorful and my sister said her class gobbled them up like... well, cookies!
We also made a delicious porridge using barley flour, but I forgot to take a pic. I know, I'm an aweful person. But it basically looked like any old porridge, although it tasted quite different.
The last-minute family cook-off was so much fun. Mom and I dashed out to the nearest store in search of ingredients... BTW who knew that barley flour was easier to find than leeks? We brought the ingredients home and began to cook up a storm. My sisters helped mix the flatbread dough, dad made the porridge, while mom and I worked on the cookies. I hope we get to do this sometime soon.
