    It sounds a bit like Turkish lefse-or would lefse be Norwegian yufka? What is it made of? It looks and sounds amazing. Can you bring some home with you to keep Turkey in your tummies, perhaps?

    It sounds absolutely delicious with that melted butter.

    They make a year's supply? Really? How hard and stale is it after 11.5 months? But fresh yufka sounds delightful!

    I love cooking with girlfriends or my kids–I would not be down with the headscarf, but the rest of the experience looks like something I would really enjoy.

    And anything with Nutella is a little bit of heaven.

    Jo, Just popping by to say Merry Christmas. Hope you have a nice one.
    The Yufkas sound yummy, wish I had one right now. xo d

    Yufka-sounds like something that desperately needs to be imported.
    (too bad it's not a Scrabble word)

    Merry Christmas! These posts are so interesting. I love your title for this one.

    O Jocelyn, I love who you are. Love what matters to you, and love how you write. This is a beautiful piece, full of what makes you such an interesting, curious, willing, thoughtful, perceptive and multi-layered person.
    Yes, yufka sounds wonderful, and makes me want to come and have some myself (wink,wink)but you could write about dried horse turds and I'd probably have the same reaction.

    Now to catch up on the one before this, and maybe the one before that. I may be slow to get here, but tardiness only gives me more of you at once.

    Seems every culture has their own style of lefse, tortilla, pakora, on and on. Sounds like this thin piece of Turkish bread brings comfort to your family. I'm thinking the Nutrella added. I looked at that in my cupboard tonight thinking it might be time to indulge.

    A calmness in this piece. Perhaps after all the hoopla of preparing the house, traveling, freaking out at "what have we done?" you have reached a new plateau in your adventure. Comfort food aids, I'm sure.

    And you don't have to put on Christmas this year with the lights and trees and all that jazz. Amen to that. Take good care and enjoy.
