    Hi my name is chocolate chunk zucchini cookie dough and I need to be made.

  2. Alexis @ There She Goes

    I like Turkish delight too! I don’t know anyone else that does though haha

  3. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    You are too funny! I would have polished off those desserts in seconds. What is Turkish Delight? I’ve never even heard of it!

  4. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    You had me at fried haloumi *sigh*

    So much dessert…. I wish I was there!! 🙂 And I LOVE Turkish delights. Have since I was little, living in France only deepened that love affair. Looks like an awesomeee meal.

    Is it me only that the fried haloumi looks sooo delicious. I have a thing for fried cheese !

  7. Kate @ Green & Juicy

    Hilarous! Love the Christmas equation haha. I love, love, LOVE halva.
    PS I tagged you for a stylish blogger awards, check it out! 🙂

    omg YUM! On another note, I love how you started the post with your christmas day & christmas eve “equations” – hilarious!

    I’ve never heard of halloumi but it looks great!

    wow that dessert looks worth the prostrations on a dusty flood – I think halva would be my favourite too but it all looks like a fine ensemble – and it needed to be fantastic to make amends for a bad main x 3 that didn’t inspire a jot of poetry!

    Halva absolutely owns my soul. When I was very little, mum used to buy me little cubes of it from the deli at Coles when we’d do the grocery shopping. It kept me quiet for….at least…I dunno.. a minute or so. Until the sugar high kicked in. Then she was worse off than before. Bahahahaha… good times.

    LOVE Turkish Delight too. It was never something I *didn’t* like, but I’d only ever had pretty boring, tasteless, generic stuff (like Fry’s chocolate-coated one from Woolies). It was only relatively recently – like in the last few years – that I had the “real deal” (or, given I have never been to Turkey, the “realer deal…er”. And it is so fantasticcccccccc 🙂

    ALSOOOOOOOooo halloumi is a god among cheese. The end.

    “Persian fairy floss”? That’s a thing?! I must know more.

  13. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Let us both promise this: when we meet we will go nowhere near any halva or Turkish delight lest we get into a horrid fisticuff situation over it and ruin everything.

  14. Susan

    Oh my god that haloumi looks amazing! I have never been a fan of turkish delight, especially the cadbury version of it.

  15. L-Engineer

    The halva was like crack! What sort of crack would that be? Can’t envisage you consuming crack forever, however.

    This may well be a dumb question, but does saffron have a flavour? Or is it just yellow? Given how expensive it is, I can’t imagine that it’s just food dye, but I tried making saffron potatoes at christmas and it didn’t taste like anything!

  17. Fiona

    *sadface* that saffron wasn’t very good 🙁

    Glad your dessert made it okay!

  18. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    *putting hands up as a Turksih delight lover too!* In fact I could easily eat a box of it along with baklava. I don’t know why some people can stop at one cube. Clearly they’re not applying themselves 😉

  19. Camille

    I had Turkish delight for the first time maybe ever last week after dinner at a Turkish restaurant on my street, and it was surprisingly pleasant, considering all the negative things I’ve heard about it from everyone but that little boy in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

  20. Anna Johnston

    Aaahhh, good thing your main meal is dessert huh 🙂 Sounds like it made up for the other course, the one we shouldn’t mention & sounds a little bit like booner 🙂 Sadly, Saffron can be a bit hit ‘n miss sometimes.

  21. Jenn L @ Peas and Crayons

    I could not be more jealous of your food right now if I tried… oh. my. GOSH!!!!

    I want it all! =)
