    Hi dear Annacia!

    I just came home from shopping. This afternoon I went in my favorite Turkish shop and I bought the cheese for the recipe! I bought halloumi and some Turkish cream cheese. I will use them this weekend!

    Oh my goodness awalde I so wish that I was close to a metropolis for shopping so that I could get such lovely things. Shopping and being close to medical help if needed are the only things I really miss about living in the back of beyond.

    Hi CG!
    Yes halloumi is yummy. It's a good solution if you prepare BBQ and you have vegetarians guests!

    I bought canned white beans as well. For this reason a new tag:
    White Beans Plaki #81969 By Sackville

    I'm preparing this just now!

    White Beans Plaki #81969 By Sackville has been enjoyed very much.
    Assembling the ingredients was fast and we love this recipe.
    I knew more or less the same recipe from Greece where this is called simply "gigantes"; perhaps as big (giant) white bean are used for the recipe.
    The white bean I bough were not as big, but every kind of beans can be used for this recipe.
    In addition I'm glad I used the last piece of celery root I had in the cellar icon_wink.gif .

    My gracious your fast! It's been noted for you hon.

    I quite like beans myself but for some reason I don't use them as often as I should. They have a lot of nutrition as well as good taste.

    We just came back from Turkey were we had Borekitas De Berengena #255300 by Susiecat too.
    At the beginning this recipe gave more work as usual as I added too much flour but finally they were a great success. icon_lol.gif

    In one of the ZWT games Annacia inspired me to try different kind of coffees!
    I love espresso and usually we prepare a strong "ristretto" it with our "la Pavoni" machine.

    We bought the machine in 1995 directly in Italy (conveniant exchange) and it still working very well thanks my husband who makes the services himself. The copper/golden color looks quite different today and now it looks like an "old timer"!

    Travelling we came to the taste to local coffes. We love Greek / Turkish coffe as well. My brother broght me once a delicious coffe with cardamom from Giordania. Travelling in Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia,...) as moro or less back packers (with children as well) we discovered the street-coffees! Mmhh, this is much better than the coffee served in restaurants in the capitals!

    Only with ZWT I learnt that special mixes are a great option as well and that coffee can be mixed with many different ingredients and you can make many different coffee-improvisations!

    I just had sharons delicious coffee:
    Turkish Coffee Mocha #508830 By Sharon123

    That is an amazing gadget & a wonderful story! Thank you for sharing, awalde. icon_smile.gif

    I thought the 'gigantes' referred to the large lima beans.

    I don't know exacly what kind of beans are lima beans, I had a look in the web and I think I never had them.
    In Greece the beans used (usually) for "Gigantes" are called in Italian "fagioli bianchi di Spagna".
    This is the Greek recipe in Italian icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif
    ghigantes plakì (fagioli bianchi di spagna al forno)-
    The reastaurants use simply the canned white beans, because it is easy, fast and they have only to place them simply in the oven (with the other ingrediens)...not in a pot as stirring they would turn mash!

    It is salty, but you eat this with other dishes and salad.
    I warm countries the people need salt and salt is a good preservative for the cheese.
    The only thing I find strange in Halloumi is that it squeaks a little bit under the teeth!
