Milk and Honey

For the benefit of my foodies in NoCal, here’s what we ate on New Year’s Eve:
Red lentil and bulgur balls with fresh mint
Grape leaves stuffed with cinnamon rice and pine nuts
Stewed sweet celery root and carrots
Grated celery root, walnut, garlic and yogurt salad
Red cabbage salad
Green salad with pears
Feta cheese and olives (of course)
Roasted red bell peppers and spicy green peppers
White beans
Mixed nuts
Homemade butter from Trabzon with village bread
Raki (men), cabernet (women)
Cheesecake, gingerbread and s’mores (marshmallows from the States)
For the kids:
Pasta and butter
Milk and honey (literally)

And we ate: 2 fresh cracked crabs, butter, little piles of sea salt, 2 whole lemons, raw bitter greens from the garden, italian bread, david bruce pinot. Kids: broccoli, strawberries, fusilli, butter. There were some complaints about "that crabby smell" and someone commented that the crab-eaters "sound like pigs." It was glorious. We missed you.
