Last night was a big salad with spinach, rocket, tomato, red onion, beetroot and some nice lor peynir all sprinkled with sumac, and dressed with nar eksisi, lemon juice and olive oil, Then we had chicken with figs, rosemary, jalapeños and garlic, roast potato, cauliflower and broccoli. A bit of Turkish delight for himself and a bit of jam making for me and we headed to bed.
Tonight we had a drop of spinach soup with a fig salad to follow. We then had some strawberries pears and melon with a dollop of ice cream sprinkled with pistachio- decadent but delicious. Only A week left before going home

Home for less than 12 hours and I want to go back to Turkey! I'm perished although it's actually mild here for the time of year- allegedly 14c! Feels like minus 4 to me! Mind you we ankles up to the shops andback earlier and I was still wearing my sandals and didn't feel cold! But now that I've been sitting for a while I'm freezing! I got some fabulous giant prawns in the supermarket and cooked them with some chilli lemon garlic, fresh coriander ( which I really miss when I'm in Turkey) parsley and white wine! Stuffed right now but I'm sure I'll be well able for the Indian takeaway that himself has suggested for later!
