Sunday Suppers with a Middle Eastern flair

Our tomatoes are still itty bitty plants, but they already have us longing for the fresh produce of summer months. One of our favorite ways to use tomatoes is paired with mint. So we better get the starter going for our pita bread…

  1. G’day Looks GREAT! Yesterday I had the best Middle Eastern meal at a restaurant which is the pillar of the community here in Adelaide too! I “sense” Middle Eastern food will now be “on my list” to do! Thank you! Cheers! Joanne
    What’s On The List?

  2. We’re just back from London, where Middle Eastern street food is everywhere. I’m mad for it, and pitta with falafel is just excellent.
