Dallas Elevation: 450 ft

Another SW region party in Blagoevgrad. Where I finally got to see "Harry Potter"!

645am outside my window. BEAUTIFUL!

Starting point elevation: 5900 ft / 1800 m
Highest elevation in Dallas: 450 ft / 150 m
I think I know why I have breathing problems in high altitudes.
This picture was also taken before my button came off and fell into the black hole that is a squat toilet. At least the zipper still worked.
And this is Eva, my English speaking friend!

And for your next recipe:
MUSAKA

-Peel 12 small/med potatoes, wash
-Oil pan, heat
-Cut potatoes in small chunks
-Chop 1 small onion, 2 carrots
-Add to skillet, stir, lightly fry
-Add 9oz ground meat to vegetables, stir (Meat should be defrosted, not cooked. The meat used here is called "Kaima" and is a mixed meat. You can use ground turkey, chicken, beef,etc.)
-Add 1 chopped tomato or 3/4c tomato sauce/paste
-Add 1 tbsp salt, pepper to taste, 1 tbsp parsley, 2c water
-400F - 1 hour
(Note: Don't put so much water that potatoes are covered)

Separate bowl:
-3 eggs, stir
-Add 5 big spoonfuls (serving spoon size) plain yogurt. Stir.
-Add mix to top of musaka after the 1 hour in the over. Do NOT stir.
-Put back in oven for 15-20 minutes.
-Top should be lightly brown when done.

(Personal note: If you're carb conscious, something you can do would be to use less potatoes and add other veggies/more meat. That's my plan for next time!)

thanks for the recipe. But I just gotta know...which button? Jeans? Jacket? I stand ready to send you a button, because you are nothing if not stylish, and missing buttons just don't fit your profile!

I haven't tried the musaka yet....it sort of scares me. However, I will be making baklava tonight! I'll take a picture once it's done to see if it looks how it should! :)
