My dad had never been a great cook, or even a good one for that matter. The only thing I remember making for us when we were kids is pancakes, usually on the weekends, which is not a very common thing back in Iraq, especially in the 80's. Something his ex-girlfriend taught him when he was getting his PhD from Indiana University - Bloomington.
My dad was diagnosed with cancer mid 2016 and passed away early 2017. Short time before he passed away. Despite his social morals, he surrendered to his pain and agreed, after a lot of convincing, to experimenting with Marijuana. Part of me was excited that I will finally get high with my dad, which I think one of the best social activity every parent and his or her adult child should experience.
I decided to make him his own recipe with a stoner twist. And I remember very well how he felt afterwards. I think it was the first time he felt that comfortable and relaxed since he was diagnosed, and the last time before he passed away. We watched a Recount. It's a two hours movie! For a cancer patient, it's a long time without feeling agitated from sitting down, exhausted and wanting to lay down.
This recipe is in memory of my dad. I've never had his approval all my life, but I know he passed away proud of me. Rest in peace, Baba.
