Also would like to share the story of this soup:
This traditional Turkish soup goes back to early 1900's. In the region of Antep, a beautiful lady, Zöhre, later nicknamed as ‘Ezo’, (meaning attractive or beautiful), ended up marrying a man chosen for her by her elders. After a couple of happy years, her husband mistreated her so badly that she was eventually granted a divorce, something quite unusual at that time.
After 6 years of solitude she had again no choice but to marry her cousin who later moved to todays Syria which was part of the Ottoman Empire before the 1st World War.
In order to win the favor of her mother in law, Ezo was asked to prove her worth in the kitchen by creating a dish and she created a spiced lentil soup using the simple ingredients she had at hand – it is this soup she made that we now know as ‘Ezogelin’, or ‘Beautiful Bride's soup".
Like many stories, this one also doesn’t end well for Zöhre (Ezo). Soon after the marriage, the Ottoman Empire collapsed and Turkey was founded. The borders between Syria and Turkey were established. Ezo living in a foreign land, with no money and without any hope to see her hometown again, spent her years in an utter misery. It is said that because of her deep longing for her hometown, Ezo died of tuberculosis in 1956 and has since become a Turkish legend, depicted in popular films and lamented in folksongs.
Her name lives on in this popular soup now, which is now traditionally fed to brides to sustain them for the uncertain future that lies ahead.

Pizza from the tavern up on the corner:

The installer for the backsplash is here, and we're treating.

The tavern has been on my 💩 list for a while, but they're back in my good graces because they've tuned on of the TVs to SkyNews. I had to do a double-take to be sure:
