Derinkuyu, Turkey- The Allure Of The Underground City…

For today’s Cafe Siesta, I’d like us to revisit this amazing City so that
those who are just following me now will also have the chance to see it.

Imagine a well-planned, well-connected, multi-tiered city in Turkey named

Derinkuyu, carved out of the stone underground. The history is incredible

and the fact that it has lasted this long in good condition is more amazing.

This may give food for thought about some cities of the future…

Hopefully, it won’t ever come to that…

I think we need a red wine for today’s slides…  How about a toast!

A little note of advice:

Wine drinking is not good for the line they claim. Still, one by drinking red winepomace. Usually the culprits ‘fatty food’ with wine. But keep it always in one to two glasses of red wine per day. Wine drinkers are usually not overweight people. …

Unlike beer, even at relatively high consumption of wine a ‘wine belly’ is very unlikely.

Red instead of white wine

White and red wine contain many calories, but the little grain of red grapes contains more antioxidants. Furthermore, alcohol (in moderation!) help prevent blood clots.

Cheers Everyone!

Hmmm…  Did I just say wine drinking in here? Well I really need a drink :)
But too bad there ain’t nothing in here… :(

So better I will just grab me a cup of coffee… hahaha

You bet I’m at MY BEST when I’m over-the-moon kind of feeling…

Mixed Vegetable Salad

And when I’m over the moon…  I’d treat myself with a complete French Meal!!!

I begin with my choices of “Starters” or Appetizers

Le Rustique cheese fondue

Any kinds of “Salads”, but I prefer a Vegetable Salad like this one that I usually make by myself with my own choice of vegetables like carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, green & red bell peppers garnished with ring onions, dried rosemary or persil leaves, olive oils,  and lemons.  I like to dress my salad with 99% fat free Kraft Thousand Island dressing or just with a plain vinegar, olive oil and a pinch of rock salt  dressing.  Classic! This salad will be perfect to continue with any kind of a main dish I would prefer on that special day when I am at my BEST.

Mixed Vegetable Salad

Of course! French Wine!  Unfortunately, I don’t have it here in Jeddah, but you bet this is what I usually have when I spend my holidays in France.

Lots of It!!! Hahaha

Sancerre Wines are the best, they come from Sancerre, Center France

Sancerre… Tasting the Real France, Summer 2011

The  “main course”

Rack of Lamb with Vegetable... My chef husband just loves to prepare this meal for me... mmm really delicious!

AND My favorite dessert!

Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream... I took this photo just one week ago at the Mug & Bean Restaurant in Jeddah

And always say “Cheese!!!”

I love cheese!!!  We have all of these kind of cheeses available in France.  6 Kinds of cheeses Phil & Vicky prepared for us when we had our dinner to their place in the suburbs part of Paris at Nogent sur Marne before the Fireworks.

Fireworks, July 14, 2011 French Revolution Day

 Champagne in between…

And I wouldn’t be satisfied without a hot cup of coffee after a heavy meal…

Yes! I am over the moon when everything around my own universe just goes smoothly right to its course. It’s when my goal and all the things I wish to accomplish would just flow to where I want them and so naturally I would breath-in Joy, Peace, Smile, Love, Wealth, Health, and Happiness. All these eureka become the powerful energy that I would take in. This energy builds inside me brighter and brighter, stronger and stronger creating an aura that surrounds me with protection, self confidence, beauty, true joy and at my Best in all ways at all times.

I bloom and glow like this beautiful orchids…
It said,”Would you take a photo of me? S’il vous plaît? So I did.  It looks gorgeous isn’t it?

And so when I am at my best, I am over the moon to treat myself with a complete French Meal, from a starter to dessert and cheese. Just Perfect!
