September Cooking Experiment: Lebanese Mezza

So our Cooking Experiment this month was a little Lebanese food, including:

Chicken Shwarma
Stuffed Grape Leaves (we bought these - cheaters)
Pita (bought this too)
Olives (different kinds)
Tzatziki - no idea what recipe we used

Overall it was delicious.  The shwarma recipe is great.

August Cocktail Of the Month in October: Mojito

Yum Minty Lime Deliciousness.  Here's my version.

1 heaping tablespoon powdered sugar
6-7 mint leaves, washed
1 oz Rose's sweetened lime juice
2 oz silver rum
Club soda
Mint garnish

Muddle mint in powdered sugar in a pint glass. Add lime juice and rum and mix thoroughly. Fill glass with ice and then top with club soda.  Mix. I prefer to dump it into a second pint glass and back into the original. Garnish with mint sprig.

Perfect summer refreshment.  Yum!

Two weeks with pretty much no posts.  Well, things are happening that have kept me busy, and sadly the blog suffered the wrath.

I will be better.  Look for makeup posts this week across the various blogs here.
