my trip

I just got back from a fabulous trip in California.  I had too much fun with my pops, my bro and the rest of my family and friends!  I saw some cousins and my 2 Aunts, Ghassana and Najah, whom I haven’t seen in 12+ years.  I missed them soo much and it was so great to see them and spend some really good quality time with them.  I also my some of the best arabic food in the entire world that my aunt Najah cooks.  She is soo good that she should open her own arabic restaurant…it’s that good.  She asked me what I wanted for dinner when I got there on Thursday and I told her, of course, it’s grape leaves.  NO ONE can make them as good or like how she does them, MAD DELICIOUS!!

I am silver elite on Continental and I got upgraded for FREE, to First Class.  That was WAYYY sweet!!  I have been in first class seating before, but it’s always nice to be there and get waited on and feel very comfortable for a few hours flying.

Anyway, I just got back in tonight and I’m extremely tired, but I must wash some clothes and order things up cuz I’m a neat and clean freak like that.

I love California, my original home!

Good Night!

What’s your favorite type of food? 

Mine has to be ALL kinds and types of food.  I will have to say that there are some things I don’t like or won’t continue to eat.  I consider myself an open-minded individual, but there are some things I just don’t enjoy.  I love arabic food or course, because I’m of Arab decent.  Tabbouleh, Hummus, Shawarma’s and Kifta(meat on a skewer) are some of my favorite Arab dishes.  I also love Italian food.  The many different types of pasta(angel hair and penne are my faves), the meatballs in spaghetti(or do you prefer meat sauce?), the fococcia bread, Italian herbs and spices, olive oil.  What about TEX-MEX.  I know I love Mexican food, but must qualify it to TEX-MEX, because all the other Mexican food out there doesn’t quite compare.  I want my Mexican greasy and delicious.  Not pretty and pretentious without much taste or flavor, which is what I find in other states that serve Mexican. 

We eat out probably 3-5 times a week, depending on how much we can control ourselves.  It seems to be tough to stay at home and eat every evening versus going out.  I like to eat out and in Houston, there are a thousand restaurants within walking distance and all are pretty good too! 

So, tell me…what’s your favorite type of food and why?
