New food

At the suggestion of a couple of friends, we've added a few new cookbooks to our collection: specifically books on the cuisines of Turkey, Georgia (ex USSR), Spain, India and the Sichuan province of China.
We have decided to try once a week or so to make dishes from one of these books, and picked Turkey to begin with.  So this evening we had a dinner party, serving eggplant pilaf, filo with a spinach filling, and white bean with red onion salad.  It was delicious, and hopefully we will have the energy to continue experimenting weekly for a while.
The other culinary note today was that I made crumpets again, for the first time in several years --- quite successfully: in particular, Skibo and Boo both wanted more, and Skibo asked if I could make them again tomorrow morning.  I promised him that I'd make them again sometime soon, but not tomorrow.

Yours, having fun in the kitchen,
