Tabouleh Recipe-Lebanese Salad

Today I'm in the mood for some tabbouleh, this is my mom version, which is I believe is the best. She taught me how to soak first the bulghur (wheat) with chopped tomatoes, lemon and onion and that will bring up all the flavors. Personally, I like to make it and eat it the same day and never use the food processor to shop the parsley.

2 bunches of parsley washed and chopped finely with stem disregarded
small onion, sliced thin
1 cup of fresh mint leaves washed and finely shopped
4 medium size tomatoes finely diced
2 to 21/2 tablespoon bulghur
1/3 cup of olive oil
juice of 1 and 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
Romaine lettuce leaves or grape leaves for serving and decoration

Soak the bulghur with tomatoes, onion, lemon and let it sit while you chop the parsley. After you slice the parsley and the mint, mix all the ingredients and add olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve tabbouleh with romaine lettuce leaves or grape leaves and enjoy.

  2. If you’re intimidated by dark lips, like Rachel McAdams’ at the 2016 Met Gala, don’t be. “What better time than the holidays to make Coach Bags a big, bold statement?” says Bartlett. She says the perfect pout means following four foolproof steps: prepare, prime, paint and perfect.Start by moisturizing your lips and following up with a primer — Bartlett’s coach factory partial to MAC’s “Prep + Prime” lipstick base ($17.50 at — to lay down an even canvas. If you’re a lipstick pro, Bartlett suggests swiping on a matte liquid lippy, such as Coach Outlet Too Faced’s “Melted Matte” in “Evil Twin” ($21 at, with a concealer brush for full, even strokes. You’ll get a full-coverage swath of color that should last all night. Perfect coach purses the look by going over edges with a lip pencil if needed and cleaning up any smudges with a cotton swab.But if you’re intimidated by brushes or darker shades, try a Coach Outlet Online chubby stick instead. “They’re usually sheer, which could be a beautiful look if you’re dipping your toe into dark lips,” Bartlett says. Flirt’s “Chicksticks” in “Franky” ($32 for a two-stick set Michael Kors Bags at is pigmented but glossy — an easy pick for first-timers.
    One of the women walking the New York Fashion Week catwalk this week is living proof that the human Longchamp Bags spirit can survive just about everything.In 2014, Reshma Bano Quereshi was shielding her sister from an abusive brother-in-law when he threw acid at them. Her sister’s hands were burned, but Bano’s Coach Outlet Store face was badly disfigured and she lost her left eye.“There was an intense burning on my flesh — I was very scared,” the 19-year-old recalls. But her disfigurement didn’t silence her Michael Kors Purses — quite the opposite. Instead, she turned to YouTube, where, in a posting on Make Love Not Scars’ channel, she shows how to achieve the perfect red lip.More than 1 million
