Let them eat Arabic food…and lots of it

August 16, 2010


Thursday, we made a trip to Salama Halal Meat to pick up some food  for my husband.  Specifically, Arabic food.  Generally, he isn’t a picky eater and we don’t eat exclusively Middle Eastern foods.  We have a recipe repetoire that includes food inspired by Italian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Indian, and American.  But during Ramadan, my husband wants, […]
