This weeks entry for Foodie Friday comes with a story! Last year the embassy community said farewell to a wonderful family-who were being transfered to Turkey. The Caseys—all 4 of them wonderful people. A good friend and co-worker of Tim´s decided to give them a farewell party and enlisted my help. My answer-a send off-türkish style!!! We had all sorts of wonderful dishes from home made Hummus to Lamb. Throw in some decorations-open some bottles of good wine—invite a great group and you have everything you need for a great party. ANYWAY, as a thank you the Casey´s sent me a care package from Instanbul—which leads me to my entry–TÜRKISH COFFEE.
Although both my husband and I know how to brew a regular cup of java–we had never had türkish coffee-three cheers for the internet and the web site CoffeeGeek(http://coffeegeek.com/guides/turkishcoffee)-with the directions printed out-we embarked on a new adventure—and what do you know-minutes later we sat down and enjoyed our first cup of Java Joe-türkish style.
Thanks Casey Family for coming into our lives! The world is small and I have the faith that one day we will all meet again!
