Chicken Ceazar Salad.


Hello again.

A quick satisfying lunch in a busy day Chicken Ceazar salad, fresh and healthy cause of the little amount of mayonnaise cause I use thick yogurt with it.

For the dressing :
A juice of half a lemon.
1 small teaspoon mustard.
2 big spoons mayonnaise. 2 big spoons yoghurt ( a trick so as not to use too much mayonnaise).
Salt.pepper.dried oregano…and a small cup olive oil.
A useful way to get a thick creamy dressing is to put all ingredients in a tightly closed jar and shake it very well….very easy.

Mushroom Broccoli Pie.

Hello everybody.

Bad dusty weather , went back home quickly after a meeting and closed everything tightly hoping that house stays clean,then started buzzing in the kitchen.

Lunch as planned was courgettes in white sauce and meat, specially requested and done,love it when kids ask for something a day before you wake up happy hahaha.

After that I started looking around for something to do with the remaining puff pastry from yesterday, then I remembered the asparagus pie in did couple of weeks ago and decided to use same filling ( mustard, labaneh, eggs) but used mushrooms and broccoli, added some olives and cheese then wrapped it up, sooooo delicious.

I also found some leftover blueberries so I made my favorite biscuits with jam or filling, yummy yummy for sure.

New Style Tuna Sandwiches.

Hello everybody.

Every time I decide to stay home and relax in end up working too much or doing multiple things at the same time.

First thing when I entered the kitchen this morning I realized I have one very ripe avocado and one lonely eggplant so made a dip (mashed with some lemon juice,tahini,yogurt and salt)   and baba ghanouj ( chopped grilled eggplants with diced tomatoes,peppers and some mints then topped with pomegranate sauce)

Then the daily question of what to cook started nagging in my mind, then decided to do a new sandwich style my cousin posted last night with shredded chicken but I made it with tuna, turned out really good, kids loved it.

Secret ingredient is the crunchy sandwich bread or crust done by cutting edges of toast  then soaking each couple together in whisked eggs then coating all with breadcrumbs.  I let them cool in the fridge so as to hold better then deep fried till crunchy, when cooled open and fill with any stuffing you like, today is added tuna with corn,capers, relish, mustard, mayonnaise and green onions,served with fries and big mixed salad.

Another task for today was making fresh pesto before basil turns black and a fresh fruit cocktail from new honey from Ghor, oranges, pineapple and bananas, really refreshing after all this.
