Well, it has been a very busy week, I am sure not only for me. I tried to get the flavor of Israel into the blog, from Cold Labaneh to Hot Levivot, from Bedouin pita and Injera to Lachuch, from humus to Fasole batuta and from routine home life to a few meals outside. There are many more ethnic dishes but my time and blog time are limited! I wish happy holidays to everyone out there. Thank you to those who made kind comments, asked thought provoking questions or just commented on global similarities, or differences. Let's hope the new year will bring peace to the world. Shalom, Salaam.

Wow, thank you - what a great blog!
I found some greens today at the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv and was very happy about that. Thank you! I'm not sure exactly what I have, but they are greens of some sort and I am sure I will like them. I also bought a package of jachnun to try soon. Yay, me!

Thanks for sharing the Romanian meal. Quite meat-centric. Were you able to eat anything?

Lior, thanks very much for giving us a wonderful glimpse into your world. I love seeing how others live and eat and once again it shows how our world is becoming so diverse through migration: fascinating.

Ilana, thank you so much for taking the time to share your corner of the world with us. It was fascinating!! I love the diversity you have available to you. And I dare say this is the first time I've ever seen a pregnant camel, no less in a food blog! Of that I am certain! I feel like I know so much more about you and about your part of the world now. I hope I am fortunate enough to visit some day. There is so much I would like to see and explore. Thank you for opening our eyes to it.

Best wishes to you and your family for a healthy, happy and prosperous new year!
