This last week I was able to go out to California and visit my parents. It was so nice there was other family there visiting as well, including my grandmother that I miss and wish I could see more often. She lives out in Florida so when we get to see her it’s always a big treat! I’ve talked before about my Lebanese background and how it’s influenced the food we make in my family and this last week was no exception. While we had a big crowd at my mom and dad’s house we made some family favorites like Kibbeh , Syrian Rice, and Tabouli. I was in heaven and eat soooooo much. I’ve been running more lately and I’m glad I brought my running shoes so I could run and make more room for all the yummy food.
