Belated Valentine's Present and Breakfast

 My go to breakfast seems to always be a version of a Turkish breakfast these days.  I've been so busy cooking for the shelter that I have been neglecting the fam so I whipped this up for the guys yesterday.

 A type of sucuk sausage with cheese.

 A salad of cucumbers, oven roasted tomatoes, olives, green onions, celery, parsley and dressed with oil and vinegar.

 I made some simit too.  My family loves simit.

I poached some eggs.

And finished them off in a butter, paprika and sumac sauce.  It is so good to dip simit in these eggs.
Here is a new ring my family bought for me.  Sorry it is so blurry, here is a link to a better pic.  My daughter searched high and low for this ring. She showed it to my husband and The Blog Tech and they all agreed it was perfect for me. It is made out of oxidized silver with gold on lays, black diamonds and clear diamonds. It has a turquoise stone covered by a faceted quartz dome which reflects light and looks like a pool of liquid. The band is covered with gold and diamond on lays.
I thought the band was too flimsy looking for the size of the top of the ring so I mixed it with some of my black gold and yellow gold stacking rings.  Thanks did good!!!
