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.
Pouring rain today,hope nobody got stuck in traffic or got soaked wet like me,it was sunny when I left home I swear ! anyway thank God for car’s heater , but roads were really awful and I just heard many people were hurt or stuck in floods ,wish you all be safe and warm .
A dear friend told me last week she do this appetizer with olives,since new ones are about to be ready I pitted all last year’s green olives mixed them with grated carrots,crushed walnuts,hot and sweet peppers,lemon slices and some chili then put all in glass jars and added olive oil to the rim. Great appetizer in cold wintry days like today.
Lunch today was chicken curry also a good choice in cold weather and my son insisted to do some Tacos for himself cause he doesn’t like curry a lot .
I also made Anise Cake to have with mint tea now .
Shopping again today with no time or any clue what to cook. As I went through store shlelves I found taco shells, so here it is..today’s lunch.I remembered that I already have cooked minced beef in the freezer so lunch will take 10 minutes to be ready. I only need to bring all ingredients:)
You will need: * minced beef.
* taco shells.
* canned red beans.
* 2-3 spoons sweet corn.
* small chopped onion.
* 1 chopped tomato.
* few drops Tabasco.
* sour cream ir labaneh will do.
*shredded cheddar cheese.
Cook the beef till done with a bit of oil, add half of the chopped onion, 3-4 spoons of beans, corn , 1 small spoon of taco seasoning and few drops of Tabasco. Simmer for 10 minutes on low heat.
To the other half if onion add tomatoes, drops of Tabasco and one big spoon if ketchup, mix well.
Note: this dip or filling can be bought ready made from any store, and you can make as spicy as you wish.
Arrange the shells in an oven tray and roast till a bit crispy.
Take them out then spread the shell with sour cream, add a spoonful of beef mixture, then another of tomato filling. Sprinkle with cheese and back in the oven till cheese melts. Serve it hot with a salad. Very fast and diffrent lunch for a change.
