FOODS WE LOVE

 
I love Lebanese food. Something about it soothes my palate. Where my hubby works in Michigan there are any number of restaurants that cater to that culture. And... when I visit him there, we frequent them all. BUT here where we live there is no place that does. And I sadly miss out on indulging myself with my favorite cuisine. So, imagine my delight... when driving north of here, about thirty miles... when I accidently came across a place that specialized in this wonderful food. I was in heaven reading the menu. Authentic home cooking. Kafta, Ghalaba, Falafel, Shawarma, Gyro and Tabbouli. My mouth watered at the mere thought. Ultimately I ordered lamb grape leaves with hommous, pita chips and bread. What kind of food do you like???

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I've never had that food. There is no place around here to get it. But I have seen that there is more and more varieties being offered than ever before. It's good to try something new. You just never know if like you I might just love it. I'd have to say that seafood is probably my favorite and there is a Red Lobster close that I usually get to enjoy at least once a year.

Hmmmm - - - don't know if those foods would appeal to my palate but I do love Italian!

Don't think I would like those. I like american food and Mexican food. I am not brave at trying strange foods.

To be honest I have never eaten Lebanese food. I would like to try it.

I like Southern cooking, but that is what I was raised on.
Italian is next on my list. I was 16 before I knew even what Pizza was. Spaghetti was my only Italian food growing up , and it was out of a can.

Neat entry. Thanks

Never had that type food, and I guess I am just happy with old fashioned southern cooking!

Mexican is my favorite with Italian being a close second! Then good ole Southern cooking!

That does look good! I haven't had much lebanese food. I love Italian, however, my hips could go without the pasta :)

I love all food, but if I had to choose one besides good ole American, then I'd probably say Mexican. Chinese comes in at a close second.

No Lebanese food here in south Texas that I know of. Maybe some place in San Antonio. Living in south Texas I had better love Mexican food. Here in our town there is a Mexican restaurant, café, taco stand or something on every corner. My favorite for a treat is steak and salad. That's what we had for New Year's day lunch. I would try Lebanese if I had a chance. I'm wondering how you was introduced to this type food.

Taryterre,
I was just thinking to myself that the food picture looked very cool that way haha, and then you said it wouldn't flip.

Anyways, I've never tried Lebanese food before. I love Italian food, and just went to lunch today with my son. I have to say that Chinese food is another favorite of mine.

So glad you found a Lebanese restaurant close by that you like.

Love,

Your dish looks very good! My favorite foods are simple veggies leaning way to the bland side, so much so that no one else would eat it...lol...with baked chicken or fish. Wishing you a happy 2014.

What food don't I like? Just about all Asian cuisines -- Japanese a little less -- and Italian, French, Mexican and Middle Eastern in a very close second. I'm also a fan of Southern US cooking and am happy to eat hush puppies or a peach cobbler any day.

Grew up eating my mom's Southern home cooking and the few non-Southern things my father would eat along with some Jewish & Filipino foods since there were large population of immigrants of those ethnicities where I lived.
I married a 2nd generation Italian/American so I learned to cook a vast array of those dishes. Living in metro NY/NJ area for 17 years I've eaten a wide variety of ethnic foods. Where we've lived for the last 13 years, it's heavily populated by peoples with Polish, Greek, Slovakian and German heritage so we've learned to cook pierogi, halushki, pogach/pogachi, gyro, spanakopita, moussaka, etc.

If it tastes good, I'll eat it! lol
