Every evening we gather there for a fantastic dinner. One of the dishes every time on the table is beans – foul deep with yogurt or like here red beans deep with tomatoes and oil and lemon dressing:

“Manaishes” – typical Arabic pastry with meat or cheese filling, served with yogurt. Often we purchase a bulk of them from the bakery and freeze ahead.

Every Iftar there is at least one or two main dishes other then appetizer and pickles on the table – everything freshly cooked and prepared from the scratch. This time it was “shakryie” soft lamb pieces cooked in yogurt sauce (vermicelli rice is on the background of the picture typically served on the side):
