A while back I posted about "The Language of Baklava," a memoir about growing up in a Jordanian-American family, which included recipes. The other night Mom and I tried " 'Distract the neighbors' grilled chicken" and "subsistence tabbouleh."
I've made tabbouleh many times before, so that was easy. The basic recipe benefited from the addition of some red and yellow sweet peppers and mint. It could have used a little more lemon.
The kebabs were also easy; we used boneless skinless thigh meat and marinated it overnight, then grilled it on skewers. The marinade consists of olive oil, lemon, garlic, rosemary, brown sugar, cumin, cayenne,salt and pepper.
We grilled some large mushrooms as well, and the result was most tasty. Two pounds of chicken meat made enough to feed four people, and the leftovers make for a great lunch the next day.
