It’s a wonderful world of food out there these days. When we were kids, the most wildly exotic thing we had for dinner was Italian food. Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore---and even on a small Main Street like Milford’s, you can get tasty shawarma, pad thai, or pierogi. What a wonderful world!
Mediterranean Grilled Vegetables - Once again we find ourselves making a dish so colorful that it tantalizes those taste buds before you’ve even gotten a good whiff of the aromas. Eggplant, sweet peppers,summer squash, and zucchini are grilled until crisp tender and served with a lemony Greek yogurt sauce. This is about as close to perfect summer food as you can get.
Chicken Shawarma – what is not to love? Spicy but not hot. Rich and loaded with umami flavor and balanced with the presence of crisp lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and a cool and creamy cumin-scented yogurt sauce. If new flavors frighten you, this is a great starting place. Nothing weird to give you pause.
Roasted Chick Pea Salad – Not your mama’s bean salad. Oh, no! these chick peas soak in a quick marinade, then take a dive into some great spices (nothing too spicy, we promise) and end up in a toasty hot skillet before they land on a bed of diced cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions with a sprinkling of fresh herbs.
Marinated Lamb Kabobs – tender chunks of lamb, marinated and grilled on a skewer. Great served alone, with garlic sauce, or in a wrap with sour pickles, and yogurt sauce. Even the pickiest eaters fall in love with these. Little prep, big results.
Fakhfakhina- the most delicious fruit concoction! It can’t decide if it’s a fruit salad, a beverage or a dessert. We don’t care as long as it’s delicious----and it is! It’s an assortment of chopped fresh fruits, fruit juices, good quality vanilla ice cream, and a sprinkling of peanuts. It’s very traditional and sounds like the perfect foil for a dinner on the deck in the blistering heat of summer.
