Here marks our fourth week at Holy Land Designs, and oh how time flies. Aside from composing an array of amusing blog posts (mostly just amusing to us, we realize), we’ve picked up some valuable life skills along the way. Things to add to our combined resume:

#1. Cooking a very limited selection of Jordanian Food

Look out Top Chef, because Haddie & Kathryn have made their entrée into the world of fine cuisine. Last week, some of the women at Holy Land taught us to make galayet bandoura, a tomato-based dip eaten with bread. It consists of onions, bell peppers, garlic, tomato, and a healthy splash of oil. Delicious. On today’s menu is mtubal, an eggplant paste similar to the consistency of hummus, and also eaten with bread. Keep a look out for recipes on the blog!


#2. Arabic Sign Language

Several of the amazing deaf women at Holy Land have been helping us along with our Arabic sign language. The consensus on this matter is that Arabic sign language is way easier to learn than Arabic, so we’ve been enjoying the process. We can describe our families and have some short conversations with the women, not to mention our hand-dance moves have significantly improved.

#3. Matching forks and spoons

So one of Holy Land’s beautiful products is a set of olive wood serving utensils. Now, the uniqueness of olive wood is a blessing and a curse: every single piece is different. Some are pinkish, some are yellowish, some are brownish-grayish-reddish with swirls, so you want a fork and a spoon to really complement each other. And that’s why we created cutlerycouplery.com. Here, every utensil fills out a thorough profile, including questions about what they value most in a relationship and their long-term goals. Cutlery Couplery has been voted #1 matching algorithm by Fork Report magazine for six consecutive years. A satisfied Cutlery Couplery user said, “I met my ideal partner on Cutlery Couplery, and we’ve been together for three happy years. There’s no one I’d rather serve a dinner party with.” Another user raved, “Thanks Cutlery Couplery! I never thought the online thing wood work out, but I’m so in love with my spouse. It’s like we were cut from the same block.” Here at Cutlery Couplery, we believe every utensil deserves their perfect pair. And that’s the scoop on that.

All in all, we’ve loved our time at Holy Land Designs so far, and we can’t wait to learn more about this business and culture. Keep an eye out for future Haddie & Kathryn sightings.

We’re Haddie & Kathryn, and we approve this message.
