Father’s Day Lunch

So today for Father’s Day I didn’t cook anything new. I made saffron rice, roasted lamb shoulder encrusted with a tahini lemon marinade, fired up some sirloin steaks and baked some zaatar chicken wings. My sister came over and brought a Iranian salad which she made. And I made kunafa again – though this time with mozzarella and queso blanco cheese as the filling.

But it was a day to thank the fathers in my family – my husband, my brother and my brother-in-law. My own father passed on 17 years ago. Time really does heal and sometimes I feel anxious when I forget certain memories. All I can do now is to gift him a prayer.

The saffron rice with some cute Australian boiled eggs and pomegranate seeds.
Sirloin with roasted tomatoes on a vine.
Roasted lamb shoulder. I marinated overnight with tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt.
This time round I made sure I made a wall from then kataifi base to get a full kataifi encrusted kunafa.
Delicious salad made by my sister. I added cubes of grilled haloumi because I had some leftover and didn’t want to waste.

Happy Father’s Day to all daddies out there. Continue to uphold strong values and be wonderful role models to your children. ☺️
