We have had a good Thanksgiving morning complete with cinnamon rolls,
Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special, and making some gingerbread cookies.
Joanna was actually fairly helpful cutting the cookies out.
We went over to a friend's house recently and I tried my hand
at this local dish to take with us, called Mercemek Koftesi.
It's red lentils, rice like grain, parsley, onions and seasonings formed into these shapes.
I will consider the attempt a success, although one of our friends unsolicited
pointed out several things that I should do different next time.
I guess that's how I will learn :).
