Two Women In One | Nawal El Saadawi
post image
Pickpick

My first book finished for #foodandlit 🙂🇪🇬

I loved this novel about a female medical student in Cairo and the difficulty she has living in the patriarchal world. The writing and translation were both incredible and this was short, emotional and incredibly evocative. Having said that, it was hard not to continually compare it to Woman At Point Zero which I did prefer.

Egyptian meze takeout for dinner. The best dishes were falafel with tahini, roasted eggplant, and yellow lentil soup. I‘m definitely adding this place to my list of regular takeout options. #FoodandLit @Butterfinger @Texreader @Catsandbooks

This is way too late for #foodandlit #Mexico but it is still a topic near and dear to my heart: Mexican food. So I thought you all might enjoy this enjoyable article about Mexican food versus Tex-Mex.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It is never too late to discuss Mexican food. I also realize that since I eat Mexican food semi-regularly I didn't share my tacos, enchiladas, or dinner & margaritas for my birthday dinner. I guess I'll just have to make/eat it all again! 🤣 1d

I had a very lovely meal from this cookbook for #FoodandLit #Egypt! A little fancier prep than I would normally do, but all delicious.

Mom's Lentil Soup (amazing!)
Three Pepper Baladi Salad (very good)
Dehydrated Tomato Tabbouleh (tasty)

LeahBergen I‘ve been wanting to buy this cookbook! 1d
Tamra Ooooo, need to check out! 1d
Liz_M @LeahBergen I'm lazy, so this cookbook is a touch fussy for me (really the tabbouleh salad could have been made with regular tomatoes, rather than dehydrating and blending them and spreading as a sauce beneath the salad....). But only a touch. 1d

Nawab El Saadawi was a prolific Egyptian author who wrote in Arabic and had many of her books translated to other languages. She died in 2020, and was a doctor and a feminist writer. This book is a short poetic novel about a female chemist trying to find herself. Even though it‘s described as a love story, her passions for science and uplifting women come through really clearly. #FoodandLit @Butterfinger @Texreader @Catsandbooks

Butterfinger Love the cover. 1d

Yesterdays dinner was a Lentil Salad from #Egypt with self-made Tarator Sauce. Simple, but so, so tasty! I love lentils 😍

This is the first in a trilogy about the decline of Ancient Egypt. The main character is purchased from her Thracian mother who cannot survive and feed her remaining children otherwise, to a man who wants to educate and develop her into a consort for Egypt‘s wealthy men. Fortunately her “work” is never described in detail. My only complaint is that the reason the MC‘s only friend turns against her is beyond the MC‘s control. Interesting read.

Librarybelle Great review! 2d
