As told you here, I had to exit Turkey so I get back in and fix my overstayed residence visa (ikamet). We were living in Mersin at that time and decided that the Greek Island Kastellorizo was the easiest way out. For that we (my daughter Selin made the trip to Antalya with me) had to travel to Kas, Antalya and from there take a ferry boat to Kastellorizo island, called Meis ada in Turkish and it's Greek name is Megisti.

Actually to tell you the truth, this list could have been soooo much longer haha! Saw so much that I love, Lucky me though, not long after the New Year, my birthday comes up, I might just make me another list then ! :-) hehe....
Something with roses again.
Remember I got so many petals the other day when I was preparing the white chocolate rose truffles? Today, on my morning walk I picked some poppy flowers. Went home and prepared a rose syrup. A quick and easy thing to do, but now I need patience as it will have to wait for at least one month. It will be ready to use right on time though. It's getting warmer here everyday, but then it will be hot here and we'll be then able to prepare some refreshing drinks and cocktails.
Rose Petal Truffles
Another wonderful day here in Mersin, Turkey.
I had so much fun with the preparation of these rose petal truffles. This morning I went for a nice walk along the beach and this is where I got the idea to do something with rose petals, maybe because I saw all the roses in bloom everywhere? Then I remembered that I wanted to use the red beet juice I preserved the other day after making the red beet hummus. Alright, I thought what about pink chocolate to coat rose petal truffles? ... and so, I went on to the store to get a few more ingredients and then back home to the compound by the sea. We have a wonderful garden here full of all kind of flowers and of course lots of roses. YAY! So I walked up to one of the guards and asked if I could get some, Someone later delivered me a bag full of pretty pink rose petals. Way more than I needed, already thinking of other things to do with them, perhaps a nice jam.
