Hello everybody.

When his parents picked him I boiled some potatoes and made a simple salad ,just added green onions,sun-dried tomatoes,greens and a basic vinaigrette.



Steak Sandwiches, Potato Chips and Crunchy Eggplants.


Hello everybody.

Today is meat turn,I always try to make variations during the week between poultry, meat, veggies and no protein day. Unfortunately we’re not a  fish loving family so I rarely cook it if you noticed.

Lunch today was steak sandwiches, homemade chips crunchy baked eggplants and sun-dried tomatoes, grilled halloum salad with roasted pine nuts.

Trick in homemade chips to be a lot like ready ones is soaking potato in iced cold water for 30 minutes then drying it completely before frying in very hot oil.

Crunchy baked eggplants are simply sliced, soaked in egg and milk wash then dipped in breadcrumbs and baked in some olive oil, that’s it.

Lovely big salad with sun-dried tomatoes,grilled halloum and pine nuts over a bed of greens and avocados with simple vinaigrette.

Summery Watermelon Salad.

Hello everybody.

Back to normal life routine today, went grocery shopping and kitchen started buzzing after a three day vacation.

Since it’s extremely hot and nobody wants to eat something hot or heavy after eating in restaurants past couple of days one feels so full right?
Well end result for lunch was this amazingly cool salad which consists of watermelon cubes, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and sprinkled with green onions, mints and lemon slices, I then added a drizzle of pomegranate sauce and olive oil. Really yummy.

I also made some pasta with white cheese and parsley and tacos. All very delicious.
