If you know me, you know that I like to bake. And I would like to think that I have mastered baking from scratch over the past few years. I find baking to be therapeutic and a good activity to do with a toddler. So, today I decided to bake with my son and found it be quite comical. I had decided to bake the easiest way possible which is to buy a cake mix and add some eggs. Why not from scratch today? Because our temporary accommodations has limited kitchen supplies and sadly, we have yet to stock up on all the food staples such as spices, flour, and oils. We literally have to start from scratch in regards to purchasing food items because we were not allowed to ship any food items to Doha.
A little sense of freedom is the ability to drive yourself somewhere. After a week of being chauffeured around we finally drove through the streets of Doha ourselves. While it seems simple, it is actually quite daunting for many reasons.
