Date Rolls

It has been a very long time since I blogged. The months have simply flown and finally I get down to posting. I having been so pampered all these months along with my little one by her grandmothers, that honestly , I hardly saw the kitchen during their stay. But now they have left and I am back in the kitchen; polishing on the kitchen skills that were getting rusty to say the least, to begin with. But all this time I have been collecting the pearls of wisdom that has been passed  to me over the various dishes and recipes they were making, I will be slowing posting the very many recipes I got from them, soon after I perfect them in my own way, sharing them with you in the process.

So today I thought I will start with something sweet! Date Rolls is one simple and nutritious dessert that every one would love.

California Dates - 2 cups
Milk - 1 1/ cups
Walnuts - 1/4 cup chopped
Almonds - 1/4th cup chopped
Sesame Seeds - 1/4th cup
Canola Oil or Ghee - 1 1/2  tsp
Salt a pinch

Grind the dates and 3/4th cup of milk until they make a thick smooth paste.In a saute pan dry roast the walnut, almonds and semsame seeds seperately and keep aside.  To the pan add 1 tsp of ghee and once the ghee heats up add the paste, rest of the milk and salt  and cook on simmer until the paste becomes darker and start to leave the sides of the pan and starts to become a thick mass. This should take  about 8 to 10 minutes. Make sure to stir often. If you want at this point you can integrate the dry ingredients (walnuts, almonds and 1/2 of the sesame seeds) or you can wait until later. Remove the mixture from the heat and spread it on a alumnium foil that has been oiled and let it cool. Once cooled you can add the dry ingredients as a layer above the dates and then fold the auminum foil to create a large sandwich of dates with the walnuts, almonds and sesame seeds in between. Refrigerate for 2 hrs. Remove the top part of the foil and sprinkle some of the sesame seeds, turn over onto a plate and sprinkle the remaining sesame seeds. At this point you can cut it in any shape you want or you can cut unto thin stripes then again until the rolls are of desired lengths and make rolls by rolling it until it is smooth.
Just so you know this IS a sticky dessert, albeit a very tasty one.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
tell someone!

I wοuld not put it іn thе freezег for a long time,
you can put it in thе freеzer for a cοuρlе οf hours but I would not put іt іn there fоr а couрle
of weeks. Υou cаn also draw designѕ on
thе bugs' backs with ketchup or mustard. Sometimes the pizza slice seller will place your precious portion inside of a triangle-shaped cardboard container, smile, then wave you on your merry way.
