We're going to watch Saturday's matches at Salah's house, a good friend of ours.. I feel for him as there are so many people over all the time, and when we all leave the house is such a mess.. My apologies Mr. Chamma! I'm bringing some easy snacks, nothing too fancy, which we can munch on as we’re watching the games.. Missed you Rasha!!

Serves 6-8 persons

1 bottle of Red Wine (750ml)
1 cup of whisky
juice of 2 oranges
juice of 1 lemon
750 ml of mixed fruit juice (apple, pineapple, cranberry..)
2 TBL brown sugar
1 lemon cut into wedges
1 orange cut into wedges
apples cut into chunks and any other fruit of your choice

Mix everything in a large bowl and chill for at least 6 hrs.. Serve nice and cold!

Bresaola, Goat's Cheese &  Poached Pear 
3 pears
300g of thinly sliced bresaola
300g of soft goat cheese
150g of Boursin Cheese
a bunch of fresh basil leaves
spicy oil (optional)

In a bowl, mix the cheeses together.. Form little balls, about the size of a coin, and set them in a tray to cool in the fridge (drizzle with spicy oil if you wish).. In a pot, boil water and poach the pears for about 25 minutes until they are tender.. Cut them into chunks, sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.. Now roll the cheese ball in one slice of bresaola, add a bit of a basil leaf, and pierce that through a piece of pear.. You can do these in advance and place them in the fridge until serving.. Enjoy the match!
