Gourmet Spoiling

CC and I got a real spoiling last Saturday night. A precious Turkish friend and her husband invited us to dinner. We work with her and have so loved getting to know her this year. But what we didn't know is that she had a secret weapon at home. Her husband! He is an aspiring chef and loves to try out new recipes on company. So, we left the kids at home, took a deep breath after a very busy week, and arrived to their home to find this...
...that pea dish had fresh cilantro in it. I had to refrain from licking my bowl.
Then he brought us a cool melon soup. I glanced at CC. I knew at that moment, he would expect some type of re-creation of this soup. It's just not going to happen, CC. I have no idea how he pulled these ingredients together.
Then he brought us our main dish. The. most. tender. chicken. ever.
Aren't they cute? Can't you see him with a chef's hat running his own restaurant? I'll be his best customer! Thanks, Burak Bey!
Thanks for a wonderful evening! (Let's do it cook!)
