Last night I went to my cousin's 18th!
This was my cousin from the Turkish side of my family. Everyone thinks I am making this up but they are real people, I swear! I am not Turkish but my uncle (my Dad's sister's husband) is. I love hanging out with my Turkish family because there is so much delicious food.
Mini cheese and onion quiches made by Mum.
I was so busy photographing the food that I forgot to eat any of this bhuja mix! Noooo! It's my favourite snack so I'm kicking myself now, but thank God, I just remembered we have Soy Chips in the kitchen. That'll do. Anyway.
We always buy Mrs Quick's sausage rolls from the supermarket, they are by far the best.
We had pide from some place at Haberfield. Oh my God. This stuff was AMAZING. I will never again enjoy Westfield kebab shop pide.
There were heaps of flavours and I grabbed a bit of everything. One had some kind of meat that I was told was like a Turkish salami. I don't like salami at all but I tried it anyway and I'm so glad I did, it was fantastic. One of the best things I have ever eaten. I wish I knew the actual name of it - does anyone?
BTW, if you pronounce this so it rhymes with "ride", or try to be accurate by calling it "pidday", click here.
Mum made these butterfly cakes, they were lovely
My lardburger plate. The other thing is a ricotta cheesecake from some place called Papa's. It was really yummy, tasted like homemade.
Dad always buys this English beer for my Grandad. I think it's gross but whatever.
Shall we do some outfit snaps now?
Betty in a Glassons top over a Supre tank dress with SES pleathe jacket and Siren shoes, $30 down from $170. I loved how she did her hair.
Me in my red Kmart dress ($29) and Target leopard shoes ($10.88?), with Equip gold bangles (part of a huge set I got in a 3 for $10 sale), the Bee Ring and a necklace stolen from Betty.
Ready for a close-up?
How cool is this crazy mirror?
Mum in a Basque sweater dress (40% off, this weekend only!) and my Aunty in what is probably a really thrifty outfit, knowing her.
As you can see, everyone in my family is as greedy and stingy as I am.
Happy birthday Addi!
