It seems to be a breakfast!

There is this persian restaurant in chicago called Reza's. Each time i go there i have to get the buffet (or persuade somebody to do so!) only beacuse they have baamieh in there, and they don't have it anymore when i leave:))))

Leva Jan. All talk and no action! Do join me whenever you are around my friend. I am planning a "lazy weekend" with no commitments, trying to catch a few rays of sun. If you are in town (our town), call and your name will be Kathy, too!

Serendip, the were exceptionally fresh today, making them photo-worthy. When we were students, I had to learn how to make them in my kitchen! The experiments were awful, but I finally figured them out, thanks to Roza Montazami's cookbook! It is so much easier to order them, though, I'll say.

Hello Hello to Atrisa! Welcome to my nick of the woods! Hee Hee, you are clever, but I am camera shy! I think it is best to imagine each other until such time as we can meet in person.

Anyhow, faces and figures and physical appearances are really irrelevant to affairs of the heart and friendships, I believe. My girlfriends and sisters used to tease me mercilessly as we were growing up, because I was always interested in boys they considered "ugly" or "un-hip," always asking me what I saw in them. I could never describe how the way somebody would shyly smile or raise his eyebrows, or blink his eyes was attractive to me, because those features said so much about the person behind the face. Anyhow, to date, I am attracted to people who don't particularly look good, as I most certainly don't particularly look good myself (!), but also because we so quickly get used to each other's personal appearances. Then what? What will keep people attracted and attached to each other, I believe, is the hearts that talk and hold each other. Anyhow, I am not a secret, as my identity is real and many people who read this blog can and do see me. But I think our "likeness" is the least important part of us, hence the deliberate ommission! Be good Atrisa and come back!

Jeerjeerak: From your comment I gather you do like Bamieh! And you are so skinny! This food item is the death of me, personally, though I don't have a sweet tooth and would always skip the birthday and wedding cakes and other desserts.

I have been to Reza's Restaurant in Chicago, and would you believe that for a wedding we had in Michigan one year, they catered our dinner? They are good. Bon appetit Jeer Jan!

Skinny? That made my day (or night, or morning!!!) nazy jan. You should come over here and i'll take you to Reza's and we'll eat their all their baamiyeh in 3 soot:)

Mmm...bamieh!

Nazy said...

Fariba Jan Salam! I hope you are well my dear. It is always fabulous to hear from you. Many people tell me they have the same problem as you had in that they cannot leave a comment on my blog. How did you get in this time? Tell me so I can tell others, too. (I personally think it has something to do with firewalls.) Be good my friend. Can you promise to come back again soon?

Sweet Tooth Assal: When will you go to have lunch with me in Berkeley?
