I got back late last night from our annual 4th of July trek- it was fantastic as usual! This morning I felt great. Bright eyed and ready to seize the day! Flash forward to when I started to put together this blog post, and I feel incapable of forming full sentences. Food good. Also, it is difficult to type whilst sucking your thumb in the fetal position. But I digress.
I had a super tasty and colorful new recipe featuring my favorite food ready type up, but as I said, typing is hard. Instead, I give you my new favorite seasoning with this za’atar recipe! Don’t worry, the other recipe will go up later this week. This may be my new favorite spice- I’m putting the herby goodness in everything from olive oil for dipping pita, to pizza, to eggs, to burgers! Yum. You can find the lemony sumac at Whole Foods or local spice shops. I’ll be sure to show you some new recipes in coming weeks.
Also- today is the last day to enter to win a dozen bagels from NYC straight to your door! If you haven’t entered yet, what are you waiting for? And tell your friends too- because if they win, they will have to share. Because who can eat a dozen bagels? I retract that. Pretty sure if anyone can, it’s someone who reads this blog. Boo yeah! Okay, enough chit chat, here are some Internet friendly highlights from my trip.
Red, white, and Jew!
I never claimed not to be a narcisist.
Just your average Michiagn tourist attraction.
One of our daily theme parties: 80’s WWF. Can you spot me?
