Za'atar: 1 Reason Trump Doesn't Suck For America

This is not going to be a blog where I tell you my political opinion. Mostly, I am too busy to have one and also because you probably don't give a fuck what I think. Donald is not super popular according to most lists and a lot of that is because of the idea of repression. It sucks, we're all people, we should just get along but we're not going to. Can any good come from this dude?

Yes, one thing that is going to come from this presidency, in my opinion, is a renaissance of middle eastern cuisine in America. I make a living on predicting trends and selling them to my clients.  Za'atar is going to be the hotness in 2017 and beyond. 

What is it? It's a middle eastern spice blend with ground thyme, roasted wheat, toasted sesame seed, sumac, and a pinch of salt. 

Where can I use it? Everywhere, chuck into your fried chicken dredge, make burgers with it, blend it with olive oil and use it for a bread dip, top pita bread and serve with yogurt for a dope snack. Whatever you do, just do it before all of your friends do.
