If you lived through the 80’s, you probably heard the song Walk Like an Egyptian by the Bangles. Oh yes, that song has been going through my head all week.
Walk like an Egyptian
Well, that’s the only part I remember…
I loved the music video as a kid. I guess it caught my attention seeing all those people dancing around like Egyptians. It was fun!
Although it was not at all educational, the kids and I found the music video on Youtube and did our own Egyptian Dancing.
Go on, check it out. You know you want to 🙂
Okay, enough of that nonsense. That’s not all we did this week.
The Well of Truth: A Folktale From Egypt
Koshari – I really didn’t know what to expect with this recipe, as it calls for lentils and Basmati rice, and I had never eaten either. It was different, but my husband and I both enjoyed the dish. The kids, on the other hand, were not too happy with my dinner selection.
Egyptian Palace Bread – Sweet, sweet, sweet!!! This one should satisfy even the sweetest sweet tooth. We loved the flavor of the honey, bread and cream, but all agreed that it was a little too….say it with me….s-w-e-e-t.
The Ten Commandments
We felt this movie was a pretty accurate account of the story of Moses leading the Hebrew children out of slavery in Egypt. I highly recommend it!
