Lebanese & Mediterranean Cuisine

Aloha Everyone,

Our family is very fond of Middle Eastern Cuisine. Tonight, J.J. and I were treated to wonderfully delicious takeout from a nearby Lebanese restaurant. Among the dishes all of us enjoyed was Fattoush, a kind of salad made in Arabia including in Lebanon. Tomatoes and pomegranate, pine nuts and walnuts are often used and lamb shanks and chicken may be added to make it a substantial meal.

Tabbouleh is another salad made mostly of chopped parsley with tomatoes, mint and onion seasoned with salt and pepper.

Pita with grilled vegetables, lamb and choices of dips including hummus kept us busy. Strawberries, blueberries and raspberries with our daughter-in-law’s rice crispy dessert kept all of us lingering at the dinner table.

Aloha -- Cathi
