The party turned out to be something to remember. The Music was international, it was loud and it played using an iPad Turntable application. Check it out here
So we covered people, music . Whats missing ? Good food of course. Here's what we whipped up together. Warning folks, slight vegetarian bias present here.
Warm Pita Bread Triangles
Turkish Chicken Rolls
Turkish bean salad
Turkish Squash Pie
Butternut Squash and Peppers
Warm Pepper Salad
Shrimp with herbs
I prepared the last three items, and pleased to say that I ate all the rest.
|Warm Pepper Salad|
I was told that these were even better the day after. Cilantro was the secret ingredient. French feta cheese was used as topping.
|Turkish Bean Salad|
These beans were very different. Texture added substantially to the dish. The garnish was curly parsley. Are you a fan ?
|Shrimp with herbs|
Cooked in pot with some white wine and herbs, these babies did not disappoint. They went fast. Peel and eat. That's all there is to it.
This was my favorite dish. Husband and wife collaborated on this . Miram mixed meatball meat. Cumin was definitely a key flavor. Erbil did the BBQing. Yes folks, these were not fried. They were grilled on the family BBQ. It was funny to see the path that had to be dug out of the snow to get access. Wonder what is was like to stand outside for an hour or so grilling away. Hats off to the grilling chef. Must have been cold out there.
|Butternut Squash Sautee|
Not sure what the recipe was here. but it was great. Hoping for comments to fill in this memory gap.
Until next year.
Salute ! Serefe !
