Merry Christmas!

Today my beautiful, sweet friend Elif invited me over for some Christmas dinner.  We had dolmas, bread, pickles and yogurt.  And to drink, she prepared some Turkish tea.  Everything was wonderful and the company warmed my heart on such a day so far away from my family.

God bless you, Elif.

Tunisian Couscous

My friend unexpectedly made me a Tunisian dish to try; it was delicious and obviously made with lots of love.  This is the second time she has brought me an exquisite food surprise. I love when she brings me food; it’s wonderful and from the heart.

When people bring me food made from loving place, I am reminded of my mother and get homesick.  My mother loved my family through her cooking and I still feel love from others in this way and it warms my heart.

Thank you, à sahbi  :-*
