We are finally in Dubai winters! Loving the breezy evenings, but not so much the cough and flu that’s been going around. With a 7 year-old in the house, we are guaranteed lovely pesky viral bugs that she picks up from the school run, and the past week has seen a slow-down in our weekend activities as we recuperate. 

My little girl loves Thai cuisine as much as I do (not surprising given the amount of Thai dishes I wolfed down through my pregnancy!). So when I told her I’d make her a soup to combat her cold, she demanded a bowl of Tom Yum.

I have this special, super easy Tom Yum Soup recipe up my sleeve, but it needs a little modification for my bub. She doesn’t like shrimps, and obviously can’t take Thai hot like I can. As a sneaky mummy, I also decided to add a handful of other healthful ingredients, and prayed hard she wouldn’t sniff out the difference. This soup is far from photogenic, but tastes great and is full of nutritional value if I may say so myself!

Every Friday morning, my little girl Farasha and I have a special weekend ritual that we call ‘Girls Day Out‘. While daddy snoozes, we like to go out for a bout of girlie shopping, and often treat ourselves to a light lunch.

My daughter is only 7, and this means our dining options are often restricted to quick fixes that end with a free toy. However, I’ve recently discovered that one of my favorite Greek restaurants also has quite a specialized kid’s menu.

This was us a couple of Fridays back at Eat Greek Kouzina, The Dubai Mall. Was super fun shooting with the Eat Greek Kouzina and Le Pear Societe team, and they were so patient with my super hyper bunny. Click ‘play’ on the below Instagram post to see:
