A Seasonal Cook in Turkey: Dolma: Summer Vegetables Stuffed with Meat and Herbs
I happened to come across Claudia’s recipe for stuffed summer vegetables and was inspired to make my own. Of course this is a very popular summer dish in Greece too, but as it’s rather time- consuming, I rarely make it. The good thing about it is that it can also be eaten cold, especially if you make it with just a rice filling, so it’s handy for taking on picnics near the beach during summer. Here are two photos of my stuffed vegetables ( ‘Gemista’ / ‘Dolma’) They turned out quite well although next time I will make them a little more spicy. Anyway, thank you, Claudia, for your recipe.

The dress I finished a few weeks ago using Simplicity 2174 was so comfortable to wear on a hot summer’s day that I decided to make another one in a different cotton print. ( Please see previous post for a review of this pattern). I haven’t got a photo of me wearing my latest version of this dress yet, so here’s a photo of it on a hanger.

I thought summer had arrived but after a week of hot weather, this weekend turned out to be cool and rainy, so instead of splashing about in the sea, we went for lunch at a mountain taverna. I’d forgotten how beautiful it is in the mountains at this time of the year. Here are a few photos taken at the restaurant and then on our walk at nearby Stavroupolis.
This is the first time I’ve tried to use ‘Windows Live Writer’ and I’m having quite a few problems trying to insert pictures and to add captions and text. It looks as if I’ve got quite a bit of homework to do! At the moment I think I’d rather get on with my sewing.
