Today was Lebanon’s Independence Day and to avoid any more tragedies or tempt any terrorist-related attacks, the official celebrations were cancelled. I met a cousin for coffee in the AM downtown and then went on a street fair in a trendy location; a few blocks had been converted to a pedestrian zone and instead of a bumper to bumper traffic jam, there were families and youngish people strolling in the most relaxed way. The sun was shining, booths were set-up with food, a live band; it felt like being in Austin or someplace in California.
The Lebanese flag (see pic) was stretched on a building downtown.
I am including pics of possible dishes for the upcoming holidays. The detailed recipes are in my cookbook. I will have a post next time on the cookbook itself, which is long overdue.
