Good lord; triple digit temperatures. Just getting into the "100's" in Bay Park is bad enough....but at the end of October? What the heck is going on this year?
So, instead of doing a post on Pho and Bun Bo Hue; I thought I'd spare you and do a quick post on tonight's dinner. the mezze at La Miche is a favorite during hot weather and tonight was no different. We had the usual.
During our earliest visits, the Missus didn't care for the version. But over the years, She has grown a bit fond of it. Less smoky flavors, very smooth, a good amount of sesame paste. The pomegranate seeds add a nice tangy contrast.
Of course we got the Muhamarah.
Wonderful sweetness from the red pepper, nutty-earthy flavors from the walnut, slight tanginess from the pomegranate. Thickened with bread.....eaten with bread.
The Missus especially enjoyed this mixed with something new we tried. The Mujaddara.
A filling lentil and rice dish. Loved the fried onions.
And of course; the funky-salty-cheesy Shaankleesh.
I really like this dish.
So there you have it; a very satisfying meal, almost vegetarian, and just what we needed tonight.
