There is a nice rain outside, perfect for April 1! And I’m sipping my hot water flavored with lemon (right, this has become my favorite drink since the start of my pregnancy; no tea or coffee!), watching people and cars in hurry. We were outside too a few minutes ago and really enjoyed walking under rain with no umbrella! I love to feel rain drops on my skin, so I don’t like carrying umbrella!
It’s April 1 today, so it has a meaning for GiveRecipe readers! No, I’m not talking about April Fools’ Day! Yes, people in Turkey make jokes on that day too, you can see people laughing on TV or on streets. The name of the day is not April Fools’ Day though, we call the jokes made on that day April 1 Jokes. But it’s not what I want to share with you. You know I’ve been sharing calendars for your desktop since the beginning of 2013 and I will be giving April calendar away today!
It was nice outside at noon, so we went to a special neighborhood in our city, Historical Odunpazari, which is famous for its old houses. What made us go there at noon was certainly based on food! There is an old lady making scrumptious gozleme in a small tent at the entrance of that area. She is such a great cook! She makes homemade pasta and dried soup called tarhana as well and selling these in front of her tent.
I felt a strong craving for gozleme for a few days and when my husband, Yusuf offered to have lunch at this lady’s place today, I accepted with a great joy! Nothing could have made me happier today! My favorite gozleme is with spinach&cheese filling, but she said it finished earlier today. She had potato, ground beef, cheese, spinach fillings, and I ordered one with spinach only. I did love watching her make gozleme, but the smell was so irresistible! You can guess how difficult it was for me to wait until I had my first bite! It was sooo good!
A funny day without April 1 jokes is over, but I’m so satisfied with that gozleme. We definitely bought some extra for breakfast tomorrow!
