Had to make a lunch quickly cause boys had dentist appointment and may not be allowed to eat for hours afterwards.
I was about to make shawerma with some spinach in pitta bread I made this morning for mom’s gathering but boys suggested that I’ll try to make the Fajita Loaf style but as steak sandwich,result was really delicious they even loved it more than chicken.
Filling was sauteed shredded beef and onions with steak spices and chili then when done I added some Gouda and cream cheese. Of course you can add sweet peppers and mushrooms.
Today I decided to try my cousin’s recipe of Qatayef ,a homemade one cause she lives abroad and this typical Ramadan dessert is not available, but my version was to make a big one filled half with cheese and half with walnuts.
ingredients and method:
* 1 cup flour.
*1 cup semolina.
* 1 tablespoon corn flour.
* 1 tsp vanilla.
* 2 tsps baking powder.
* pinch of salt.
* 1 tablespoon sugar.
* 2 1/4 cups warm water.
* Mix all ingredients well in a blender then leave to rise or bubbly.
*heat a nonstick pan till very hot then reduce heat and pour a bit of dough the size you like.
* leave till all dry then remove to cool on a clean cloth.
* stuff and close with sweet cheese or walnuts.
* fry or bake as you wish then dip in syrup.
Dinner tonight was a bit of leftovers a plus a steak sandwich loaf ,which is usual steak sandwich filling ( shredded beef,onions,peppers,mushrooms) spread over a rectangular pizza dough , I added mustard and cheese also. Fold the dough and bake all in a medium heated oven till golden and crispy.
Usual appetizers were mashed fava beans and fatoush.
Nobody answered what they wanted for lunch as always,only request was another plate of hummus cause it was wiped out yesterday .
Searched through the blog,fridge,freezer and pantry then decided to make steak sandwiches,some potato chips with some veggies. Of course boys love this though I feel it’s a kind of Summer food but it was good as a change.
Was about to bake a cake but everybody objected,we ate too much last week ,enough for now !
