Delightful Mediterranean Dishes

Hey nommers! Monday already. And a pretty irritating Monday, at that. Phew that weekend was fast! For the last few weeks, I have been doing as much cooking prep work on Sundays as possible, which has been making my life so much easier on work nights, when it comes to making dinner. Being a calorie-counter (and also just because I’m fanatically organized kind of person), I tend to plan out my week of meals in advance. Yesterday, I chopped up all the veggies for all my upcoming meals this week. I also measured out all the spices (10!) for tonight’s meal, sliced up some chicken, made some turkey wraps to take for lunch this week – got organized! I don’t know how many 24-year-olds spend their Sunday afternoons in such a way, but I really find it relaxing! But hey, that’s me.

Tonight is a repeat of something I made last week – Chicken Shawarma. It was so good last week, I simply had to make it again this week! Basically, I marinated small slices of boneless skinless chicken breast in 10 different spices (following DedeMed’s wonderful recipe), lemon juice, garlic, and Greek yogurt for the day, and then once I got home from work, drained off the juice and cooked the chicken in a skillet. I then assembled my wraps in the following manner – layering with roasted red pepper hummus, tomato, pickles, and chicken, wrapping them up, and heating in a skillet with weight on top:

Looks pretty good, doesn’t it? And oh, it was!

Last week I served my Chicken Shawarma wraps with Lentils & Rice, but this week I made Mediterranean Tuna Salad, containing chopped red bell pepper, celery, green onion, chickpeas, and Chunk White Albacore Tuna, tossed in a dressing of EVOO, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, dried basil, and S&P, served over a bed of chopped romaine, and topped with feta.

Did you see the new “Ann Arbor Nomeries” tab at the top of the homepage? If not, check it out! I organized a list of posts featuring all the different Ann Arbor eateries that I have posted about. Soon, I will be adding Ann Arbor pictures, so stay tuned. 🙂
