The Works…All in one Feast
I love my brother Sam and love to make little treats for him because he is such an amazing person. I always try to make him happy, and luckily for me our feelings are mutual.
Sam has a very busy schedule so I don’t get to see him every day. Both of our lives are filled with work, kids, school, and sports.
On friday night he called me to come over to have a cup of tea but I was on my way out the door with a group of friends. I apologized to my brother with a lump in my heart, because not seeing him for two weeks was just too long!
So I wanted to make it up to him and invited him over for Sunday dinner. Then I started getting busy making his favorite meals. These are dishes that we grew up with when we lived in Syria, and it was my way of saying “I love you” to my wonderful brother.
Here are the dishes that I made:
Stuffed with ground sirloin & Rice Mediterranean Zucchini boiled in marinara sauce, garlic, mints, amazing dish. (Kusa)
Then I made Kebbeh which is baked sirloin & bulgur.
I made homemade Chicken Fettuccini with sourdough bread
Vinaigrette home made cooked beet salad, really quick and easy, yet packed with flavor.
Tomatoes and peppers salad which requires very little preparation and it has a very nice presentation, and really complemented the kebbeh dish.
And then for Dessert:
Walnuts & Pistachios Baklavas.
We had some great moments…ate, talked and laughed!
We all really enjoyed it, and that is what family all about.
