It took no effort to realize today’s goal! I try to cook all of my food from scratch, in part because I have some food sensitivities. I recently watched Mark Wien’s travel vlog in Lebanon and had to try my hand at making kibbeh. I adapted the ingredients to my taste and set to work. The smell of the meat, pine nut, bulgur and allspice/cinnamon mixture baking was incredible. A very satisfying and pleasant scent that will linger for hours is exactly what I needed to lift my spirits. What aromas have you encountered today that made you smile?
