this is turkish delight
*It was President's day and we all felt relieved because we had the day off from school. 4-day weekends and 3-day weeks are nice, though it throws your whole rhythm off a little bit.
*It was snowing and no one could wake up, but we still took the bus out to Watertown for brunch at Sofra.
*I was really craving breakfast food, but by the time we got there, breakfast had ended and they were only serving lunch. But I'm a breakfast person and can't start the day without it, so I ended up buying a whole bag of granola and a whole container of labne yogurt (oh, it is so rich and creamy - my friend said it was like eating sour cream, which I am okay with doing), and rounded that out with a little bit of savory: a kale and bean soup.
*We also shared some mezze platters, with crispy fried sesame crackers for dipping. There were flatbread wraps and morning buns, and the light through the windows was real nice.
*The best thing I had though was the cocoa rose tea, and I had to buy a little container of it to take home. I loved all the spices and was so tempted to spend all of my money on the dark-roasted tahini.
*Will be going back to re-claim my breakfast. This is only one little episode in my Middle-Eastern love affair.
