Our cooking project for this week was Tabboule, which come from Lebanon, on the Eastern side of the Mediterranean Sea.
It is made up of cracked wheat, tomatoes, cucumber, green onions and herbs. Tossed in a lemony dressing and served on top of lettuce.
My little world book didn’t include too much information on Lebanon. I did learn that they speak Arabic there and “Hello” is “Salaam a alaykum”, which I know I will never remember. Seems kinda long just to be “Hello”. 😛 I did find it interesting that people have been living in the city of Byblos for about 9,000 years, making it one of the world’s oldest cities.
