At the popular Middle Eastern place a few blocks from my place, they make a really good Fattoush salad. Fattoush consists of day-old pitas which are no longer good fresh turned into pita chips, plus chopped romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers, za’atar spice mixture, parsley, and a lemony dressing. It makes for a nice bowl of differing textures and tangy flavour from the za’atar and lemon. Plus, it’s easy.
I’ve been terrible with updating the blog! Life has been dishing out a lot of stress and I’ve been totally unmotivated to cook lots and to blog what I do cook. I have been snapping some photos along the way, though.
Each year in the depths of winter, I find myself gravitating towards Southern inspired dishes. I’m not really sure why, as I’ve never been to the American south, but during the cold months I crave that warmth and comfort that cajun-creole dishes inspire.
