Oh man that looks good. I love when the spag is baked like that and gets a little crunchy.

Made a Champurrado for dessert with the yellow corn meal. Very warm and filling.

Negative. I don't get why you would do that to yourself. Get back to the Balkans - those people know how to eat!  :D
Think about it, your inlaws are there - you're already depressed - you need a good meal at least. And Slivo! Did they bring any?

Yeah, yeah yeah, gibanica, burek. Im sure those are good but you guys probably kick your dogs sometimes too.  :-*

J/K but, I was at a party on the Hungarian side and a bunch of Yugos threw a goat on the fire whole, hair and all. They gutted it but hair horns and everything right on the fire. I kept trying to avoid the smoke but ya know how the smoke always blows your way? I smelled like burnt goat hair for about a week.



No slivo. They gave um a bunch of crap about the bags being heavy and wanted to charge them a lot more money. They ended up leaving that and some other goodies behind. The Slivo will now be following along behind with the brother and sister in law contingent. ::) Mi casa su casa?...wtf was I thinking.

First - the dog was asking for it. Second - that's probably Muslims from the region - Serbs roast Pigs and Lamb.Third SUCKS TO BE YOU ON SO MANY FRONTS; you smell funny, you have foreigners living with you, NO SLIVO, more foreigners coming, and you're gonna be eating food from Kyrgyzstan. Is there a fund we can donate to, to help you out?  :P

Doesn't look promising brother. Aside from kefir and blinis - you're screwed.
I can help you out with the kefir if you'd like - got grains to spare.
Guess you need to go thru with it and eat the sheep's eyeballs though, now that you've posted it on the internet.  ;)

Still think I'd be living mainly off of blinis. Saw Andrew Zimmern eating Blinis and drinking Kvass in Russia - sounds good to me. Kyrgyzstan seems heavy into dumplings. Good way to use bad meat I suppose, mince it and cook the heck out of it. You know, sounds more an more like Chinese food - they ARE on the border.

I have a recipe for Zaalouk (eggplant) someplace as well as the carrot salad and tomato./cucumber salad.  I'll post it if I can find it.  Bastilla is yummy, but kind of a PITA to make.  Layers of phyllo dough with ground chicken, eggs, onions, nutmeg and cinnamon, with powdered sugar on top.  Got to make flat bread too.
