If you’re a Christian, have a happy Easter, and remember that most Christians from the holy land are excluded today and every other day from worshipping at the place of the resurrection because Jerusalem is illegally occupied by the sectarian state of Israel.

I’m in Austria rn and it reminds me of Swat tbh

"It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things."

These are the Lebanese dishes that don’t get as many pretty photosets. 

1. Fwerigh

They’re called fwerigh, and they sure ain’t pretty. Sheep intestines are thoroughly cleaned with lemon, coarse salt and vinegar and then stuffed with minced meat, rice and spices—the same filling as the infamous grape leaves and zucchini. The result? A surprisingly exquisite dish that when prepared correctly is slightly crunchy, fragrant, and tasty. Just try to forget that you’re gorging on guts.

2. Aasafir

Aasafir, or birds, are a very popular Lebanese delicacy involving a particular fig-eating variety (called bec-figue in French) sought for its fatty little body. The birds are gutted, plucked, and sometimes decapitated before being either grilled or sautéed and doused in pomegranate molasses or olive oil. Swaddle the bird in some markouk and prepare for a crunchy munching. Definitely not for the faint of heart!

3. Bayd Ghanam

They’re often jazzed up (or concealed) by their French name, amourettes d’agneau, but don’t be fooled: you’re about to eat the testicles of a lamb (bayd ghanam in Arabic). The butcher peels and discards the outer membrane, and most people cut them up in wedges before lightly battering them and squeezing lemon juice over them for taste. Soft and melting in texture, their flavor is subtle, and they truly are the jewels of Lebanese cuisine.

4. Lsenet

One of the most tender meats you will ever taste is not actually filet mignon but tongue! Lamb and beef tongues (lsenet) are a real treat in Lebanon, and they are typically soaked, boiled, and slow-cooked before being skinned and sliced for more aesthetic presentation. Garlic, onions, lemon, and olive oil dress up tongue nicely.

5. Nkhe3et

Did your mother ever coax you into eating lamb brains (nkhe3et) because it might expand your own gray matter? I’m not too sure about that, but these delectable delicacies are at once delicate, subtle and rich. Brains are simmered until tender and mixed with lemon, olive oil, salt, and garlic. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with wedges of lemon and Arabic bread. No rocket science here!

6. Raw liver

Raw liver is typically gathered in a piece of round Lebanese bread, dunked in salt and pepper and devoured with fresh onion and mint leaves. Raw cubes of meat are eaten in much the same manner. You’ll probably want a glass of arak to wash down these meaty bouquets

i love how “lmao” has evolved over the years from a genuine expression of mirth to the modern symbol of wet, unemphatic amusement; the mere ghost of an emotion, reflecting the journey of modern youth from innocent naievete to hardened apathy lmao
