Another Ladies Night Out

 Duaa and I got dressed up in our toobs. These are the traditional covering that all married women wear when they leave their house. Mine was a gift from Rehem, one of my new friends. We're off to visit Rehem in her home.

 More of the same wonderful family who live across the street.

Duaa is on my left and Rhunda and her two children are on my right. They are two of the four sisters who live across the street and I help tutor them in English every Saturday. They've become my closest friends in Khartoum. Today we visited their cousin's house for a lovely ladies tea party with other cousins and aunts. It was quite the occasion as you will see.

 I made myself useful and helped serve tea

 We had tons of treats - 3 different cakes and small doughnuts dripping in honey. And the tea had lots of sugar and milk.
 Some of the aunties who came. Notice they are all wearing toobs and it was probably 100 degrees in that little room.

I'm Caroline Jones, Julia's grandmother, and here's a great recipe for Hershey's Buttercream Chocolate Frosting. I saw your request for a recipe on Julia & Scott's fb page and thought I'd help. :-)

ONE-BOWL BUTTERCREAM CHOCOLATE FROSTING
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2-2/3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat butter in medium bowl. Add powdered sugar and cocoa alternately with milk, beating to spreading consistency (additional milk may be needed). Stir in vanilla. About 2 cups frosting.

It can't work in actual fact, that's what I think.
