Online school is still going strong, and with the numbers of new cases, it seems that we might end up with a full online semester not just a couple of weeks. With two kids at home, attending classes from 8 to 2. I find myself falling back on quick and easy recipes. Ones that I can prepare the night before or ones that I can quickly whip up without creating too much noise during the day. Today’s chicken kofta is one of those recipes.

You can enjoy this salad with some warm bread or crackers for a quick lunch on a busy day. It is a great addition to sandwiches or snack boards and it is one of my secret weapons for levelling up pasta , tuna salads or mixed greens.

Creamy without being overly rich, the freekeh adds texture and a nutty earthiness that balances the cream well. The mushrooms and chicken add layers of flavor. Add a few springs of basil for decoration, a hint of green and a dose of freshness and you are really in for a treat
Did the quarantine and lockdown revive any of your old hobbies or inspire you to take up new ones?
For me, baking has been my therapy throughout those dark times. I am back to drawing and I am reading more than ever but the most comforting activity has been baking,
It all started with Pita bread and manakeesh when the lock down closed all the bakeries, then came zaatar rolls, and even sourdough after years of not having an active starter, it took a pandemic and a quarantine to get back into it lol (our baby starter is called Link because my son is playing Zelda Breath of the wild).
For today, I am sharing the breakfast recipe my kids demand the most! Zaatar rolls!
I have written the intro to this post at least 20 times in my head and on the computer! and each time I end up deleting everything and abandoning the whole post!
Watching the news especially with the Black lives matter protests and everything going on in the states and around the globe makes you question a lot of things in your life: your priorities,the lengths you would go for an idea you believe in, the books you read, the company you keep, the people you follow on social media and the list goes on and on.
