Cooking day! It is always fun to do some international cooking all day. Since going to Israel this year is out of the question we decided to do a little travel by way of our stomachs. A trip to the Middle Eastern Market in the Lowery neighborhood of Denver yielded some authentic ingredients. Just walking into the store brought back many memories of living in Saudi Arabia when I was a kid. The market was packed with dates, honey, giant jars of olives, nuts, juices, and I even spotted the Bounty and Galaxy candy bars. The butcher ground some fresh lamb for us, we found some dried chick peas, fava beans, pomegranate molasses and a ton of spices.
