Five Foods

I seem to have slices of delicious food on my mind this March, so here comes another food post.

I (and you) have been invited to a favorites party by @Teachr4. The party happens at your blog, and all you have to bring are your five favorite things.

If I could, I would give you my favorites not only here on the blog, but I’d have you come over to my house. That way we could have our favorites party in person. I’d share with you my favorite foods since coming to Bahrain.

  1. Hummus and Turkish bread from Al Abraaj – I’ve always loved hummus and bread, and I could eat this every day! The Turkish bread is hot out of the oven, thick, chewy, and absolutely delicious. (Want to try it?)

  2. Hammour is the premiere fish here. It’s a kind of Grouper; it’s attributes include: “Extra lean, firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor.” Exactly. Need I say more. (Are you ready?)

  3. Halloumi Cheese, yes, that is really cheese, browning in a pan. Melty, but firm. Have you ever had halloumi cheese? You are in for a treat! (Book that plane now.)12_halloumi

  4. Pani Puri is an Indian street food, but we have to go to a restaurant for it here. These little crispy cups filled with veggies and legumes come ready for you to top them off with watery chili and/or sweet tamarind sauces, according to taste. I go for heavy on the sweet flavor. Here is my sweet daughter, (who goes heavy on the chili sauce) and my future son-in-law enjoying pani puri in Bahrain. (We have an extra room for you!)
  5. Dates have always been a favorite food of mine, and I had never seen so many varieties before coming to the Middle East. I’ve really never met a date I didn’t like. (So, check your calendar and set a date!)

  1. Mmm- the new to me is the fish. It all looks and sounds yummy and you make Bahrain sound great (at least for this foodie). I hope to get there one day.

    1. Thanks again, Erika, for stopping by again! Do you like to travel? I know you have lived around the world. I just looked up Malaysia is an 8-hour flight to here–not too bad. You’ll have to visit Oman too if you come this way.


  2. Dates are delicious! All the other foods were new to me! Thanks so much for sharing about them. I want to do the Favorites party too- just have to decide on what I would pick!

    1. Thanks, Mrs. Sokolowski,
      If I wrote the post today, I might have some different foods. It’s always hard to get a list of favorites down to five. I might try to do it again with just my very favorite things. It will take some time to think of my overall favorites; that’s why it did it in an easier version.


  3. These look delicious and so interesting! I have never seen so many dates before! Thank you for coming to my party! This slice has become so much fun to read about. Have you linked up at TWT? I couldn’t find it so I had to go back to your tweet.

    1. Thanks, Leigh Anne, for the comment and the invitation to this party. It was night.

      I’m sorry I didn’t see your comment earlier because, sadly, I did forget to link up at the TWT blog. Thanks for asking, though!


  4. These look amazing. I loved that post too and also thought to use it as a mentor text post. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Aileen,
      Thank you so much. It would be fun to have students write their favorite five! I think I will do that too.


  5. Wow, your additions add some healthy food to our party. I’m ready to try all of it, but especially the hummus and Turkish bread hot out of the oven! And the beautifully plated fish with vegetables. Yum!

  6. Yummy treats to bring to the party, Denise. I just accepted the invitation so my March 15th post is about my 5 favorites.
