Happy Friday Folks!
Looking for place to eat today? We have been eagerly anticipating the opening of St. John’s first Middle Eastern restaurant since trying Ali’s delicious food at the Farmer’s Market or late night when they were operating after hours at The Sprout. Last Friday, Mohamed Ali Restaurant finally opened and the 3 of us indulged on a platter filled with falafels, pita bread, humus, baba ghanoush, and turnip pickles, all made from scratch at Ali’s kitchen. A little more about the restaurant and Ali’s inspirational journey can be found in this short movie by Creative by Culture.
I would like to praise another local business: Oliver’s Farm. Thank you for providing us with ethically raised meats! We have just finished making another batch of bacon which we tried with some yeasted waffles. Both got our seal of approval.
Our seeds have finally arrived! Same day as I bought a neat little container to organize them all. I call it serendipity. One step closer to make my garden come true. Now is just a matter of waiting for spring. Anytime now, spring… we are ready!
Have a wonderful weekend! Make it count!
