I think the best-case scenario for a Meal Ticket night is that we find a dish we want to make regularly. And we both found one with Syrian night. Jenny made another batch of Baba Ganoush two days later, and Manoushi bread is the easiest, tastiest flatbread recipe I’ve encountered so far.
Food Fact from Jenny:
Syrian food tastes fresh and healthy. (And super delicious!) Some staples include olives and zesty salads. Tea is also an important part of the Arabic culture. [source]

I know Jenny well enough now to plan a meal with two dips.
Baba Ganoush is, to us, eggplant hummus. It went quickly.
Muhammara. Not just fun to say, but also fun to eat!
The roasted red peppers get extra-smokey before they get blended.
And the peppers get extra burnt before they get smokey.
We opened a pomegranate to turn the sweet juices into molasses for the Muhammara.

The meat is heavily spiced with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
It was delicious. Middle Eastern food has been on a winning streak with us lately.
Look at how beautiful and perfect this angel is!
