Made some Kırmızı Mercİmek Çorbası aka Turkish red lentil soup.

http://www.landsandflavors.com/turkish-red-lentil-soup/

I only use 6 to 6½ cups of water because I like my soup it a little thicker. Got some fresh pide bread filled with ground beef from the Anatoli baker.

Maybe I'll try to make it myself next time. That stuff is just so GOOD!

This years X-Mas dinner......

2 whole 6,5 hour slow roasted duck's (6, hours at around 125 to 150 degree celcius, shifting up and down as the oven heats and cools on in it's own pace) using sour apples (Belle de boskoop apples) and prunes as stuffing. Salt and pepper. The good thing about those apples, are that they are extremely sour and goes well with the heavy meat. Then standard boiled potatoes, caramalised small potatoes (melted sugar with butter), red capage, and gravy made from duck fond and red wine and other good stuff. Just the standard Danish brown X-Mas sauce with heavy cream and other goodies. Potato chips and potato snacks as well.

However.... I made a BIG mistake. I needed red wine for the sauce, and we had a bottle around. So I popped the cork and used it. When my father in law came for dinner, he was like "Dude... What the fuck!", and it turned out that the wine was a 38 dollar bottle of Amarone from 2013. And I was like "Ups!". Anyway... It hightened the sauce big time, and I have never served such a deluxe edition. Well.... Not my fault that I don't know anything about wine prices and that someone choose to give us such an expensive one as a gift. I needed it for cooking and it was our only bottle in the house at that time on the day.

And yes.... I did all this on my own, only with a slight help from my father in law. He did the finishing touches on the sauce (pepper, more wine and so on), as he have like way more experience in cooking than me. (For obvious reasons that is)

I love me some fresh Lahmacun for lunch. It's thin dough, topped with a mixture of beef/lamb, tomatoes, herbs and spices. You can eat it plain and drizzled with lemon juice (served with Turkish tea), or, my preferred mode, topped with salad, cucumber, tomato, yoghurt sauce and Turkish "hot sauce" (a sort of salsa made from tomato and Turkish green chiles) and rolled up like a burrito that's open at one end. I leave out the onions and kebap meat because I usually have people to interact with at work 😄

Next time definitely keep the onions, but try replacing the sour cream with yogurt and add tomato slices 😉

Easy to make.... Just locate those thick and fluffy pita breads, with a crispy crust. Then add whatever you like. 😜

Yoghurt is something you will never make me eat. Too much of a cheese for my taste. Skyr the same.
Sour cream on meat dishes are perhaps the closest that I will get, to eat any type of conservated milk product.

Yes... No cheese for me. I just order double tomato sauce and salad on my pizza instead.

Mmmm....
That Turkish hot sauce sounds nice. 😜 We actually have that role here in Denmark. It is called Dürum here, and can be ordered on nearly every pizza bakers all over the country. My favorite are the size of 36 centimeters in length and have a diameter of 10 centimeters. The bread is freshly baked. Sometimes they are just called Kebab-Roll.

On the link here you can see some of the different ones, that you can order in the city were I live. They just look generic for what you can get all over Denmark.

Almost! Dürüm (which is just "roll" in Turkish) is the same type bread but plain, without the meat/tomato/parsley mixture slathered on the inside.

Freshly baked is definitely best! Some places use pre-baked ones so I try to avoid those and go where mom or grandma still makes the dough by hand 😄

If you ever find yourself in Cologne, Germany, this place here is where it's at for grilled meats, kebap sandwich or dürüm:

Yup. Fresh baked are the best bread. Well... Food will always be changed to fit the local taste. Just give me a roll with kebab and salad, and I am all good. :-p1

Today we had spare ribs. And some mixed salad with a bit of dressing. A big glass of cola to go with it.

Halal markets are specialty stores that tend to cater to Canadian residents from south Asia. There's more variety of south Asian food and it tends to be fresher. I live in the middle of nowhere, so getting fresh pita bread at one is pretty much off the cards.

Just call 1-800-PITA!!!

No... seriously:

Apparently you'd have to by 35-45 pounds of pita bread in order for them to ship it to your door.

Alternatively you could just buy a couple of packs of lebanese bread on Amazon and stick them in your freezer. You just put them in the oven (or a ceramic glass stovetop) for a minute before rolling up whatever Middle Eastern stuff you want to put in them.
