Boy’s night

Last night Timol left me at home all alone. I had prior knowledge of this so I visited a local store for some supplies before arriving home. I was out of Famous Grouse so had to make do with red wine. Here is what went down.

Lunch at Demre Finike Yolu, Turkey

We left Cirali in the late morning and took a lazy Sunday drive towards Kas.

The mostly mountainous route on the edge of the sea was scenic and reinvigorating.

When we came upon Demre Finike Yolu we weren’t really hungry but couldn’t pass the opportunity to have lunch on the edge of what appeared to be a man-made lagoon.

Who remembers Timol’s bean chutney and chicken curry?

This is another one of her splendid curry creations we enjoyed for dinner, which also means lunch for me today (lucky me!).

As you know, I can’t give you Timol’s recipe – it’s a family secret (not). You could look at Anjum’s recipe if you need a hint or two.

Andy’s Home-made Pizza

What do you do when your local pizza outlet starts charging you exorbitant prices like a vendor trying to keep the Italian Mafioso and his own wife happy?

I’ll tell you. You take matters into your own hands.

I bought some frozen pizza bases, mushrooms, green peppers, cheese, onion, mince, smoked chicken, chilli and headed home. I then hauled even more ingredients (like garlic) out of the cupboard and fridge.

All got chopped up and loaded or sprinkled, as the family ordered (some were veg-fasting), onto the pizza bases and thrown into the oven at 220 degrees centigrade for about 25 minutes.

The photos below were taken before the oven stage.

We added Veri-Peri sauce before eating.
