With apologies to Dickens.
Today was much less raw food, which is lame, but everything was tasty. I was working most of the day on various projects (and got my taxes done!) and then got down to lunch/dinner: a worldly plate of food.
I guess it makes sense to combine two different cuisines, since the meal was smack dab in the middle of lunch and dinner times. One part of the meal was kibbeh, a Middle Eastern food usually made with bulgur wheat and lamb but uh not this time! This was another test recipe for Dynise, and used lentils instead of lamb. The mixture, before being cooked, looked creepily similar to ground lamb, though, from what I remember.
No? Well, it's been a while.
They were pretty tasty. I don't know that I've ever eaten bulgur wheat before, but it's quite good and gave these balls a very chewy texture. They are a little bland on their own, though spiced quite interestingly, but I wasn't sure how they were intended to be eaten. I figured Middle Eastern is Middle Eastern, and mixed tahini with some more muhammara for some sort of sauce.
The other part of the meal struck a little closer home, but I'll have to tell you more about that at another time and place....Maybe in the meantime you can guess?
There was also an unpictured salad on the side of both these dishes, but we are AGAIN running out of vegetables (it didn't help that half the cucumber fell in the garbage as I was peeling it)!
And thanks, Michelle and Dianne, for both giving me the Most Stylish Blogger award. I appreciate the mention but I don't really feel like saying seven things about myself. However, I will give you this, as evidence that I honestly don't even deserve the award which should sort of make up for being a bit guarded about "who I am."
Style? I can't even match my socks some days.
