End of a long story, start of Rima's Chocolate Truffles
So once again Rima's guest blogger steps in - the husband. I must be good, cos she always calls in the same guest blogger.
Today is a good day for Rima. The burden she has been carrying, the issues she has been having are finally over - solved today. Bottom line is, we hope that Hairi does not do nonsense anymore and stays out of trouble. Your mum was a wreck for the past few weeks you know... (yes, even her son reads this blog from camp...)
I'm looking forward to Eid. Rima goes all coo coo. Then again she's always coo coo. I mean who bakes as much as she does? I'm glad I have supportive staff who eat whatever is given to them - and they are nice enough to always say "whaa so nice". Take this afternoon for example - I come home from work and she complains of being tired. Why is she tired? Because she went to bed at 2am last night, woke up at 5 for sahur and then slept till 8. When Sonia slept for 1 1/2 (!) hours she decided to make cake kukus and her own new creation: Rima's Truffles (more below).. She needs to rest, but is too degil to do so... Ah well. What to do; mother stubborn, daughter stubborn, grand-daughter stubborn, and her two sisters... aiyoo same pot. Lucky I have nice brothers-in-law - they keep me sane... haha...
Anyway, back to Rima (she's complaining that her readers are falling asleep)...

Place chocolate cake in food processor - blend - place in big bowl.
Cook orange juice and raisins for a good 10mins over low heat - switch off fire.. add raisins into chocolate cake and stir
Melt leftover ganache and pour it over the chocolate cake (double boil).. mix and let it sit for 15mins or so.
Roll cake into balls - set aside
