Acquired Taste

Majda, in her last week with us, prepared an Arabian dinner. It made for a pretty display so I had to snap a shot. The upper food, in order from left to right, is: baba ganouche (eggplant paste) with dried pomegranate powder, grapeleaf and rice dolmas, and hummus with olive oil. The bottom row is Mediterranean flat bread and rotisserie chicken (prepared per the standards of halad in Islam) and roasted potatoes.

I liked the food, though the side dishes all require an acquired taste to fully enjoy. You can see in the corner that we didn't bother trying the new food on the girls. They enjoyed their good old red-blooded Yankee (GORBY, for you Canadians) macaroni and cheese.
