We spent our thanksgiving last week at Columbus. Ate yummy turkish food at Istanbul cafe, saw Beowulf in a Imax theater. And the best part, ate icecream at Jenis, in downtown. I had some really rich chocolate icecream.
We had a good time.

Fadime said, this was really easy, and said, her family likes this so much, that they have to buy tons of peppers and stock up! So here it goes:
potato cut in cubes, and fried till golden brown,
greenÂ peppers cut in little bite sized pieces,
1 tomato chopped,
little oil for cooking
salt, (optional: black pepper, red pepper)
For the sauce:
Yogurt, grated garlic, salt (little water for diluting)
On one side, keep the potatoes for frying. In the mean time, in little oil, sautÃ©e the peppers, on medium heat, for about 20 mins, till they are tender. Add the chopped tomatoes, and turn the heat off when the tomatoes changes color. At this point, add the fried potatoes to this and the salt/black/red pepper. Serve with yogurt garlic sauce on the side.
This is soooo good, now I want to go and buy peppers to make this, even when its snowing outside! Ta-Ta!

Had a great evening after such a long time with my dear friends from Turkey! Nilgun hosted it, and she did a fabulous job. I ate and ate and ate! What is a girl to do with so many desserts?? There was Spinach cake made by Asiye, Elma Ll pasta made by Asuman, and cookie cake made by Nilgun. Nilgun also made a really good cheese borek. I have to get the recipe from here soon. Fadime made yummy yummy green pepper and fried potatoes with yogurt garlic sauce. It was soo soo good! Hmm.. what else was there, oh yeah and red lentil kofte!
