I adore different cuisines. I love learning new foods from all over the world. I admit I do like Middle Eastern foods. That because of my attraction to Mediterranean men. I never learn, but yes I was taught a few Egyptian dishes to impress yet another man. This time wasn’t totally me, I actually had a patient give me a few recipes, so I had a co-conspirator in this.
My patient a nice older man and he know I am a good woman and I would make any man proud to say “This is my girl.” So he wanted to help me impress an Egyptian man. I figured this if my patient can see that I am a good woman, and the guy I am trying to impress doesn’t see it, then there is something wrong with that guy. Or at least that the advice my patient told me.
Actually, I do like drawing blood from the older patients. Most of them crack me up. Some are so sweet, and some they just a hoot. I learn in the 2-5 minutes I am with them so much. They enjoy the few minutes I am with them. One because I am a good stick and I am painless most the time, but also, they like my personality. When you make a good impression in 3 minutes and that person likes it that they request you the next time they come in, then you know you got a special touch with people. The only thing I admit I don’t like is being called a nurse. I am not a nurse, I am a phlebotomist. You ask any lab person, they will tell you that is a pet peeve with us when people call us a nurse.
Anyway, this is a simple dish, and it is amazing! It almost like a healthier version of our fried cheese stick I want to say.
