Mona invited me and Melissa for breakfast at her place this morning.
Along with cucumber, tomato and olives, a variety of cheeses, labaneh and zaatar, Mona made keshek.
Keshek is a very traditional food made every year by Lebanese villagers with bulgur and milk (either cow’s or goat’s) at the end of summer as part of winter’s provisions.
Coarse bulgur is rubbed with milk and left to ferment a few days; it is then placed on the rooftop (traditional homes are built with a flat rooftop) and left to dry under the sun for several days; then taken to the village mill and ground fine into a powder; the powdered keshk is once again dried in the sun for several day in order to dry thoroughly.'
It is cooked up like a thick soup and eaten with bread. Very yummy and filling!
We've had very mild weather lately which makes it nice to get out and about.
Wishing you all a great new week!
