Specials for Weekend 8.12.22

Looks like we are gong full Ottoman Empire with the food specials this week, β€˜tis purely coincidental, other than that region has a long tradition of coming up with dishes to serve when it is hot outside. And, it is very tasty. So, how about a Turkish poem:

I Buy Old Clothes.

I buy old clothes.

I buy old clothes and cut them into stars.

Music is the food of love.

I love music.

I write poetry.

I write poetry and buy old clothes.

I sell old clothes and buy music;

If I could also be a fish in a bottle of booze…

–Orhan Veli

Translated by Murat Nemet-Nejat, 1989
