Today I was inspired by two different blogs for our evening meal....Both of these blogs I have found recently and they have become quite a blessing to me! I LOVE all the photos and recipes of both equally.
So, tonight's ftoor(dinner) was a recipe from each. Thanks alot to:
http://almostturkish.blogspot.com/search/label/Meaty for the DELICIOUS meaty main course, and to:
http://arabicbites.blogspot.com/2007/09/lentil-soup.htmlfor the Slurpy rich Lentil Soup!
For these recipes and more from these talented Cooks visit their sites and explore their TASTY blogs!
The only alterations I made were these:
In the Meatball Casserole I didn't use bell pepper because I was not about to walk to the grocery store while I'm fasting in the middle of abu dhabis heatwave of an afternoon! So NO pepper for me! Also, I couldn't make it look pretty like the original recipe says to, because, I do not have an oven proof pot. I did not realize this until after I had cooked it on the stove and was ready to transfer it to the oven, SO, I had to mess it all up to put it in an oven proof pan...It didn't effect the taste though! It was gggggggreat...
In the Lentil Soup I went a little "shredder happy" (after my sister who was helping me went "shredder happy" and shredded her finger...duhhhhh woman!) and I shredded a whopping 5 carrots and 5 zucchinis and 3 potatoes to put into the soup...needless to say it was too much and almost didn't fit in the pot, but, I just added more water and salt and pepper and it tasted exactly the same, delicious!
note to sis: The extra protein never surfaced and is now either lost in the extra, or lost in the stomach. Either way, its our secret!
