Let’s work together to save water

I should have posted this article on the 15th, but I only knew about it this morning. I guess better late than never. This year’s awareness campaign is about water, which has become a global concern on all levels.

So this post is about Blog Action Day and how it brings all bloggers to talk about the same topic on october 15 every year. It’s very interesting how social media can create a worldwide awareness and help make a change. So here I am, spreading the word and trying to make  a difference by signing their petition.

Freak show on the road!

“Am the one ur mama warned u about” , “ON BORD” and “SHORTY” is what’s written on this car. I don’t understand how people think it’s cool to drive around with misspelled pointless stickers on their cars.

New concept that beats blackberries and Iphones!

I thought I’d share this link with all tech people out there… I think it is a great invention that beats all blackberry and Apple products!

Stuffed Zucchini: the Lebanese way

Some of the Mediterranean dishes require stuffing vegetables with meat, rice and sometimes both. We love stuffing eggplants, zucchinis, bell peppers, potatoes and even tomatoes! I’ll be sticking with “stuffing the zucchinis” for the moment because they are the only vegetables I know how to stuff 🙂

It is a time demanding recipe, so if you have time on your hands, you must try it out because it sure is worth it!

Here’s what you need:

  • small zucchinis ( 8 to serve 3 people )
  • A corer ( see picture below, you can also use an apple corer )
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 diced tomatoes
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 kg minced meat
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 2 tbsp Pomegranate molasses , also called Dibs el Rimman ( it is not a necessary ingredient, but it gives it extra flavor )
  • salt, pepper and cinnamon powder

The corer

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Cut the ends off the zucchinis and core them, it’s ok if you get cracks and holes, it just needs practice 🙂
  2. Start preparing the filling, which is the meat. Put 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in a big frying pan and start frying the finely chopped onions until caramelized, then add the minced meat. Season with salt, pepper and cinnamon ( optional ).
  3. Once meat is cooked, set aside. In another smaller pan, heat the olive oil and fry pine nuts until golden brown. Then add on top of cooked meat and mix together.
  4. Preheat the rest of the vegetable oil and fry the cored zucchinis until golden brown and wrinkly.
  5. Using your finger as a driver, stuff the zucchini with meat,pushing the meat down with your pinkie to make sure the zucchini is full. Repeat until all zucchinis are stuffed.
  6. Preparing the red sauce: add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a pot and fry the garlic. Add the tomato paste and water, keep stirring until boiled. Season with salt and pepper. You can add more tomato paste if the sauce is too light.
  7. Add the Pomegranate molasses to the red sauce, the stuffed zucchinis and the remaining meat filling. Cover the pot and simmer for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve with rice and enjoy 🙂

P.S: you can find Pomegranate molasses at a middle eastern grocery store.

Dean & Deluca: the 3 must-haves.

The D&D napkin

For those of you who don’t know what Dean & Deluca is, well it’s time for you to google it, find the nearest location and go try it out. I am a big fan of D&D food, to be more specific, every time I go, I order the exact same thing.

First, I start with the mint lemonade. It’s not like any other lemonade I’ve had, I have no idea what they put in it, but it is the best! Make sure you ask for the mint lemonade with crushed ice.

Mouth-watering picture!

So the drink is set. Next thing, I order the D&D club sandwich. I must say again, it is not like any other club sandwich… The sandwich, which comes with baked potato chips, is enough to feed two people or one very hungry person.

Yummaaaayyyyyyy

And at last, for dessert, I order waffles from their breakfast menu. They make it fresh, that’s why you’ll have about 10 minutes to digest the club sandwich before the waffles are served. They are scrumptious, especially with the melted icing sugar they sprinkle on top!
