    Gobble gobble…

    We both had lost some blubber in Greece but being in Turkey has plumped us right back to butterball status. The food here has been too good. We cannot get enough of their grilled spicy meatballs and kebabs. Pide, Turkish pizza, is shaped like boat hull and has meat, veggies, and egg as toppings. The doners, gyro meat, are flavorful and seared just right before they slice it off the cone shaped spit. A Turkish pancake is essentially a thin tortilla/pita spread with smashed potatoes, spinach, meat and cheese then folded and toasted. Mine was without cheese and very good. They do amazing things with eggplants including stuffing them with meat then baking them to a tasty perfection. Also very popular with us is the salsa type side dishes they make by mixing various veggies together, typically eggplant, tomato, onions, and peppers. And boy do they like peppers. They’ve got them decorating the food and drying on their balconies. Mmm, good stuff. Meals are usually capped off by watermelon or apple tea.
