Mujaddara (Lentils and Rice)

Mujaddara makes a great meal when you want something home cooked but don't have time to go to the grocery store. If you cook a lot, you will probably have the ingredients at home. If you don't cook often, you may still have these things in your home. Either way, this is a delicious meal which can be used as a side dish or main course. This is a middle eastern recipe that my mom learned from a family friend and has been cooking for years. Though it's pretty simple, the flavor is delicious.

Roasted Leg of Lamb

Since I've been little I have loved lamb. It may be because my mom has been making this lamb recipe for years. It's a time consuming process, but the end result is worth it. There are usually leftovers, which heat up well with some extra sauce. I've also used the leftovers to make Greek style wraps the following day, which I love as well. Put some lamb slices in a wrap with cucumber yogurt sauce or tzatziki and tomatoes and you're lunch is ready. This is definitely a meal made for sharing and it always looks impressive taking a huge roast out of the oven. Just make sure someone will carve it nicely. Serve this with roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes for a hearty meal.
