Take a Load Off - Go Simple

We are often under so much pressure to pull off the perfect dinner.  And what we do is prepare so many snacks and drinks pre-dinner that by the time dinner is served, the guests are too full to eat.

Last week I had some friends over and instead of going OTT, I kept it simple.

Two Minutes Turkish

I did not realize how easy it was to make a couple of cups of Turkish coffee.  For a drink that tastes so divinively complex, making it as easy as they come.  It took me two minutes, Turkish.  And really two minutes - not five.  For those who are not getting my sense of humor, I am referring to one of my favorite lines from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (link here).

Okay, back to the subject at hand.
