What is Christmas without sweets? Thank you, Tannita for the wonderful Turkish delight Melting moments!
Candles, fresh fruit, nuts, whole onions and garlic in hope to bring abundance next year
Dolmades with yogurt dressing
Sauerkraut salad ( withe leeks, olives and carrots), fresh homemade yogurt for the dolmades and organic farm honey for the bread.
Grilled sweet ( red and yellow) peppers and grilled eggplant, marinated in olive oil, vinegar, spices, parsley and garlic.
Navy beans stew with vegetables in traditional clay pot, served with handmade wooden ladle...
... in clay pot mini soup tureens
Traditional tikvenik ( pumpkin and phyllo dough pastry)
Traditional table cloth and clay pottery
But nothing else is better than the smiles and love that we shared that night...
Merry Christmas, everyone and may you all have a healthy and happy New year!
P.S: There are some things I didn't manage to catch with the camera that night, like the traditional Oshav drink with dry fruit and wine and more of the sweets, but that night there were things more important than the pictures and I know you will forgive me!
