Kahvalti


Marlin wanted to help her Baba make a traditional Turkish breakfast.

 In Turkey it's called Kahvalti, which means, under coffee or really before coffee.

 Unlike American style breakfasts which focuses mostly on one food, it consists of lot's of little things. Most commonly it is:
Cheese, a few kinds.
Bread
Jam
Eggs
Olives
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Coffee
Turkish Tea

There can be lovely things like Turkish sausage, or Borek, but we did not have that.

But ours was lovely just the same.

Sounds and looks awesome.

I usually eat cereal for breakfast, but that looks like what I eat for lunch most days!
