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.

Aish EL-Saraya ( عيش السرايا).

Hello everybody.

We’re Mansaf-ing today for dinner as well,second time this week :) ,but this time at my mother in -law’s house and ( don’t be shocked) we’re mansaf-ing again tomorrow at my mom’s, 3 Mansafs in one week is a big crime I suppose, bye bye diet !!!! why is it whenever you decide to start a diet you either have guests or receive lots of invitations? all include food of course,anyway I’m trying to at least minimize my portions :)

I made this Arabic dessert for tonight,remember I did it once in Ramadan but didn’t post the recipe then.
