سلام و خوش آمدید - hello and welcome

aha . . . you probably thought something was wrong with your computer, or your browser or something.

but fear not, this is a long-delayed post for 50@50. yes, i'm still here and i'm still FIF-TAY!!!!

a little bit of life got in the way (and some laziness), but i'm going to have to pick up the pace if i'm gonna get to fifty things before 11:59 pm on december 18th!

so, this is  #29 - my persian meal.

one of my co-workers, the lovely, talented janet, good 'ole southern girl, has been married to mano for oh, some such years. mano is of eastern heritage, and i don't mean new york. he is from iran and is quite fond of his persian delicacies. and leave it to janet to have taken to it with gusto since her newlywed days.

janet provided a persian new year meal for our library last year, and to celebrate the completion of a recent project, she offered to fix up another yummy persian delight. here's the mano, ummm, i mean menu:

Adas Polo (the vegetarian option with basmati rice, lentils, raisins, barberries and onions – it won’t be vegan because I will use some butter)

Khoreshte Bademjune(Eggplant stew with beef, yellow peas, tomatoes, onions, eggplant, spices and potatoes) 

Salad Shirazi : chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, with mint and other herbs and seasonings (I will not have the fancy tomato rose – I am not that skilled!!) she lied . . . she is!! 

needless to say, because of janet's talent, it was delicious. and i thank her for giving me another addition to my list and another edition of 50@50. see what i did there? addition, edition. oh, i crack myself up.

next time . . .
