Aladdin's Eatery

After the bike ride and garden centers yesterday, I spent the rest of the daylight hours raking and moving rocks around, trying to make sense of what's in the yard so we can decide what to do with it next.

As it was cooling down and getting dark, I picked Dr. Jay up from work, where he'd been all afternoon, (ick!) and we went over to Aladdin's Eatery for dinner. We were so hungry from our ride and his work and my work outside, and the food was soooo good. We ordered an appetizer, which was basically Aladdin's version of the meat pie at Amir's (see past posts), that we made short work of, and then he got chicken shawarma and I got beef shawarma, and it was so delicious, too. But we weren't quite full, so we ordered some hummous. So creamy and delicious and beautiful with a little olive oil drizzled on it, a cucumber slice, a tomato slice, and an olive and some parsley. We scooped it up with the nice soft pita. Finally full, we came home and went to bed. What a good day!

We actually go to Aladdin's pretty often, but somehow it never made it into the blog until now. When we were in town for 2 days last May looking at houses and deciding if Cleveland was somewhere I thought I could live (not necessarily in that order?), we went there after our first day of house-looking. We spread out all our papers and maps and flyers on one of the tables and got out the laptop to download the pictures we'd taken and narrowed down the houses we liked the best and made a plan for the next day. Fond memories, but am I glad I don't have to do that again any time soon!
