Over the Weekend

By request on July 4th, I served Yogurtlu Basti. This time, I got to use my brand new cardamom from a recent Penzey's order. It proved to be much, much stronger, so I decided next time to adjust the recipe down to 1/2 tsp cardamom. What a difference fresh spices can make!

Similar to last time, I had leftover yogurt, so I followed up the next day by making Mediterranean Tacos as well. Since I was headed out to MA that day, I packed it and brought it along, which worked out quite well. And I got some more taste-testers into the bargain who seemed to agree that the dish was worthy.

Lou said he found it "interesting." I just wish I wasn't so full, otherwise I'd have tried some.

Oh, I can probably be persuaded to make it again sometime. And is that a good interesting or a too odd sort of interesting? *laugh* Anyway, the recipe is here on the blog, so feel free to make up a batch if you like.

That was interesting as in "good", not interesting as in "I cannot believe that I put that in my mouth"!

It was my first time having this one, and I thought it was really good. A very good dish for a hot summer day too, as the meat had already been cooked the evening before, and the whole thing was nice and cool. Yum.
