Smoked Salmon Bagels.

Hello everybody.

Thought I’d do some fresh bagels today,still have a pack of smoked salmon so a well combined rich bagel would be a lovely lunch for sure.

Did the same recipe as before, though today dough was so sticky so I added some more flour for easier handling.

Filled some with salmon, avocado, cream cheese, dill and capers and others with cheese,tomatoes and rocca.

Nachos in an Eastern Look (فته مكسيكيه).

Hello everybody.

We all ate too much during this week ,lunches and dinners, so today we’re eating light to at least lessen the guilty feelings.

I made potato salad with dill and spring onions,grilled veggies tossed with pomegranate syrup and olive oil and this Mexican dish in an Arabic twist.

Learned this dish from my cousin, you simply cook some onions,tomatoes and black beans to form a sauce then spread it over the Nachos then add tahini sauce,chopped tomatoes,beans and some parsley on top. Really easy and light cause you don’t add cheese or butter,you can use light nachos for a healthier version.

Hope you all enjoying Friday so far.
