Headed up North to my hometown Irbid yesterday with some friends to visit the annual pomegranate festival usually held this time of the year.
Of course a stop at one of my cousin’s for coffee is a must, which means lots of yummies with it !
Festival was very nice full of various kinds of pomegranates ,sweet and sour . We also bought molasses and vinegar .
On our way back, another ritual again, we stopped for some fresh ewe yogurt, labaneh and bread.
A beautiful day out for sure.
Kibbeh day, intention was to make some mini ones and spread in a pan with nothing else or at least only some fries.
But then one thing led to another, got excited to do more appetizers to complete the Lebanese style, so end result was
muhammra, rocca salad, chili potatoes, various types of kibbeh ( even fried the extra dough) and new olives.
All extremely yummy, my favorite kind of food.
one portion of muhammara to go !
