Midnight Cravings

I crave flavors. Usually Japanese, Middle Eastern, and good ol' Southern USA (although I don't rule out any ethnic cuisine). Tonight (at nearly midnight) I'm really craving Lebanese.

I found a recipe on Epicurious.com for Lebanese Lentil-and-Rice Pilaf with Blackened Onions.

Not exactly holiday food.

Which is why I am making it for lunch tomorrow. With plenty of leftovers for the next few days. I'm already sick of rich holiday fare and I want something healthy. Comforting. Fragrant.

What flavors do you crave?

Chinese take-out, Italian, Korean Kimchee soup or Kimchee pogum pahp (Kimchee fried rice), Ice cream.

I had a fresh-squeezed orange juice this morning and it was heaven. I had some berries on my oatmeal yesterday, that was perfect.

And Kimchee for the first time the other day. I liked it a lot.

I think right now it's about comfort, and whatever will kick this post-holiday cold off.
