Chicken Shawarma: The Rematch

Hello friends!

I’m back in Chapel Hill after another long drive from DC. No. more. driving!! :) It’s nice to be home — and even nicer because Matt is home this week, working remotely instead of from DC! Yay :)

We went on a 5 mile trail run with my friend Tim this morning, and Tim was talking up my Chicken Shawarma Pita Pitzas — he made some for his wife last week and they were a big hit! Clearly I had to make Matt some for lunch, so he could see for himself :)


Nom nom nommmmm


He gave them two big thumbs up — said they taste just like something from a restaurant! :)


I dug in as well. Messy food = more fun, clearly.




You must make these immediately (recipe here). I now have garlic breath and I love it.

I’m heading off to school now to meet up with the girls before class to go over our Biostats homework and to catch up — I missed them over break! Then tonight should be a really fun Food Science class — our group project was to take a recipe and modify it by using a soy product and reducing the fat to less than 30%. Tonight in class each group will make their before and after recipes — I can’t wait to see the results! My group is doing beef chili vs. tempeh chili. Yum! I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures ;)

Have a great Monday!

    Looks yummy! Glad Matt can share them with you. Good luck with the beef chili!

    I wish I had those for lunch. They look delish.

    I want to make this shawarma pizza now! I have to say, the yogurty garlic sauce looks really good. My one issue with shawarma is that the garlic sauce is almost always mayo-based, which bothers me on the grounds that mayo is both unnatural and on my list of most hated foods of all time. But strangely, mayo results in tasty garlic sauce which I love and hate simultaneously while I am eating it. This might save me from the conflicting emotions I usually feel while eating shawarma.

    They looks awesome and so colorful. I think I have permanent garlic breath haha. I really love garlic on anything and everything.

    You and Matt made me think of the country western song “Together Again”.I replied on another post how much my husband and 4 of my grandkids loved this recipe over the weekend. I made 6 of them. Not a speck was left. MmmmmmmmmmMmmmmmmmmmmGood.

    I’m so jealous that you are getting to do that sort of food experiment IN SCHOOL. I love that stuff! I guess I can do it at home, but somehow it seems fun that you’re doing it for a grade and with other people.

    I can’t wait to make these!
