Weekend basics

This weekend  was really full for me.. on saturday we old high school friends met up. Delicious foods,lovely conversations,memories,laugh and more...

My friend house was nearer the airport so we saw lots of plane instead of birds :)

She made lots of delicious foods for us it was a pleasure to be on that table..

We met at European side of Istanbul so we had to chance to get on a ferry. So  much relaxing and enjoying time we had at ferry too.

On sunday  we went to nearer bazaar to get fresh fruits and vegetables..




After grocery shopping we went to park my daughter ride her bycle hubby and i played basketball i was bad at that :/

 After all joy and play we went to nearer picnic place to make barbeque also we cook eggplants and corns in hot ashes too..

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

This morning / bu sabah

i made a list and try to follow the list.. The first of it all , i have to take photo of my new items and old items which has not good photo too.

My table was all crowded with little crocheted cuteness and my kiddo Zeynep Erva joined this mess too. while i was editing the photos she read two books next to me..
 the schools are will be open next week so last days at home with momy :)

my sweet glass coaster.. i drank a glass of acai berry tea..

and after all editing jobs i give myself a sweet snack break!
new items are available at the shop and they will be an other post subject later..

Sabahtan beri yeni ürünlerin fotoğrafını çekmek ,eski fotoları yenilemekle uğrasıyorum.. Evi supurup sildim soyle bir ama diger tum işler duruyor.  Yeni şeyler üretmeye devam bu arada.. Listeler yaptım, listelere bayılıyorum zaten.. Ben hep liste yapayım :)) Yeni de defter aldım zaten aman ne zevkli yeni defterde listeler hazırlamak ..

Onca karmaşanın arasında bir de ciko molası verdim. Diyet miyet hak getire, okullar açılıp da benim hayat da bir düzene gidiğinde başlayacağım inşallah.


Mücver - zucchini rolls

 When  i was cleaning the refregirator i found just one zucchini and thought about the mücver. We do not eat to much zucchini but we love the stuffed zucchini and mucver..
Mücver is a Turkish snack made with zucchini.

* grated zucchini
* 1 egg
* red pepper salt
* dill and fresh onion sliced thin
* some flour
* feta cheese
* 1 tea spoon baking powder

mix them all ..

Heat vegetable oil in a large heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium- high heat. 
drop a heaped tablespoon of zucchini mixture in to pan; repeat, spacing fritters a few inches apart. Pat them down  so they become like a flat.
Fry until golden brown on both sides. With a slotted spoon tranfer patties to the plate.

some yogurt would be great partner to them :)

Evde buldugum bir kabak nelere kadir?! Hemen rendeleyip içine bir yumurta kırdım, biraz un biraz peynir tuz pul biber ince kıyılmıs taze sogan ve dereotu da ekleyip bir guzel karıstırdım. aah unutmadan kabartma tozu da ekledim. sonra bir kasık yardımı ile tavaya nazikce yayıp onlu arkalı pişirdim. Suana kadar denediklerim arasında en guzeli oldu diyebilirm :) Bazen boyle umarsız ,uydurma, olculere sadık kalmadan  guzel seyler de cıkabiliyor :)

Tomato Canning

In here Turkey most of the housewives started also finished winter food stocking such as canning,jams, frozing fresh summer fruits at deep freeze and etc..
i am not good at these kind of things but want to try tomato canning. So baught about 5 kilos tomatos and five jars.

For tomato caning also i used some sweet green peppers too..

First i grated the tomatos that gave me arm ache :) then cutted the peppers in small pieces. Put them all in a big soucepan added so little olive oil then boiled them.

After boiling put the hot souces in jars put the covers tightly and turned them upside down.

I have 4,5 bottles of  tomato souces .. It is not enough but a start for the rest winter stocking!

Herkes eminim kıslık hazırlıklarını bitirmiştir ama ben daha yeni basladım. Bu tür hazırlıkları annem yapar ben de ondan alırım genelde : ) 
Sırf arkadaşıma özendiğim icin domates sos hazırladım. Baslangıc olarak 5 kilo kadar domates aldım,biraz biber ekledim. 
Toplamda 4,5 kavanoz menemenlik ya da yemeklik domatesim cıktı. Ilk deneme icin fena sayılmaz :)
