    A good, housemade baklava is so hard to find. That looks delightful!

      Wow, that does sound like a great supervisor to me… not at all what I had most of the time in the corporate world.

      I’m thrilled to read your blog and especially the comments about our restaurant. My wife and I just recently purchased Bosphorous (today is 5 months) and fell in love with the food right away.

      We’re very fortunate to have the loyalty of our guests such as yourself! Next time, lunch is on us for taking the time to capture the experience in such detail!!

    I love that eggplant & ham creation! I’m going to have to pick up some of the ham at Whole Foods – I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket πŸ™‚

    You’ve got all sorts of layers happening in that dinner πŸ™‚ Layers remind me of parfaits, which remind me of shrek…

    Haha, I love your creativity! Eggplant and ham? I wouldn’t eat it, but then again, I whip up a lot of crazy things that others wouldn’t dare eat!

    I’m just wondering why it is you use egg whites so often instead of just the whole egg? For instance, in your french toast and eggplant parm. You eat eggs for breakfast sometimes so I was just wondering what your reasons were for not doing so in other meals. I absolutely love your blog bytheway.

      I usee egg white because its easy. All I do is pour a little out of the containter, no egg cracking or wisking required. πŸ™‚

    Mmm…I definitely miss the Orlando restaurant scene (I spent the last year interning down there, but am now stuck once again in the frozen north). This place looks fantastic! And what a cool twist on the eggplant dish–you might actually get me to like the purple stuff πŸ˜‰

    What an interesting lunch! I’ve never known how to cook eggplant (and even had a very disastrous attempt in the past).

    And I have to say I love the snowman plate at the end. So adorable.

    What a fun lunch! Your supervisor rocks. So cool that she ordered you each your own dessert so you could take the leftovers home. And that dip and bread? Drool! Great dinner!Josh’s mom actually bought me tons of TJs breaded eggplant and I have yet to try it. Your dinner looks so good that I might have to give it a go tonight

    Your dinner looks awesome! I had to freeze the eggplant that was in my fridge last night because I forgot about it. I’ll probably try making eggplant parm next week! (sans the ham) πŸ™‚
