Since March, when we went to Syria, have I been dying to try some Middle Eastern recipe and to invite some friends over. But sometimes it can be really difficult to get six people to be in the same place at the same time, so it took us a while to organise something.
But on Friday Jenny, James, Anna and Ian came over for mezze after work. Since I didn’t have that much time to prepare on the day because I was working, I started to prepare already on Wednesday night, and that was the best thing I could have done. Together with other chores and putting dinner on the table the two nights before, it took quite a while to produce Friday’s lovely supper.
But it was worth it! The food was really nice, felt light, and it was nice to have a themed dinner. It was also vegan (all apart from a lamb dish for the meat eaters) but I don’t think the meat eaters would have noticed if they didn’t know. 🙂
