I bet that garlic aoli is similar to the lebanese garlic spread I either buy or occasionally make myself. It’s essentially an emulsion of raw garlic in vegetable (not olive) oil, with a bit of salt and pepper added by some.

A local family sells a variant on that at the Farmers’ Market- they include pureed basil in it. It looks a bit like guacamole or wasabi.

The original and their variant are both great on sandwiches that are heavy on things like salami or ham.

And I like the original with all kinds of beef, lamb or chicken dishes.
Lebanese food is very good and that sauce is similar to the sauce we can get here in Turkish Kebabs.

Actually had Lebanese before Turkish. Local Arabic place is Lebanese/Syrian and it's so so good.

About half of all that came from the Farmers’ Market, the rest from a local Kroger grocery store.

The only thing I’d change is add more of the Scamorza. That’s from a new vendor at the FM. I’ve tried a few of their cheeses so far, and most are pretty decent, Their best is so far is the goat feta I used on that sandwich I posted in my other food thread. Some of the best damn feta I’ve ever had. (And likewise, I didn’t use enough.)

Mom wants comfort food; mom gets comfort food: hot dog casserole

Rotini pasta, Nathan’s hot dogs, chili, onions, smoked cheddar, mozzarella, catsup, mustard and Bloody Mary mix.

Post-dinner review:
Unanimous verdict- good, but needed more chili and cheese.
