>Lots of Lebanese Cherries and Acar for Dinner
>Hello everybody! Hope the weekend’s going/went well. For those who don’t know, in the Arab world, the working day starts on Sunday with Friday being their holy day. It’ll be 2 more hours till the hubby gets home so I will quickly update my blog and then start preparing dinner. All I think about is food, what to eat, what to cook, it’s no wonder I constantly eat and eat and eat.
As you know, I’ve been blogging about Acar, it is a Malaysian/Indonesian dish which comprises of cooked chilli jam which is then tossed while it’s warm, with raw vegetables. The only thing I omitted from this batch is roasted peanuts and abit mild for me. I will make another batch of chilli jam to eat with it.
So I made a Chinese meal out of it, with Chinese BBQ ribs, panfried tofu, keropok and Acar. There were some left over baby cos so I had that too with it. Yum, yum yum yum… more chilli please!!!
The meal was so lovely as always (not that I’m blowing my own horn here) but I’m glad they turned out well. The bbq ribs was a tad bit dry but it was nice to munch on. They were abit tiny though, so we will look for beef ribs next time. Wonder if the taste is the same… we’ve only ever had beef ribs at TGIF, oh and also Ribs & Rumps. As you know, they don’t serve pork in public places/foodcourts in Dubai. You need a special license to do it with regards to it being halal and all that.
