Tuz Gölü

Türkiye‘nin tuz ihtiyacının %40’ı bu gölden sağlanır. Tuz Gölü’nde tuz, meteorolojik suların yeraltına süzülerek daha önce oluşmuş tuz domlarını eritmesi ve tektonik hatlar boyunca yüzeye taşımasıyla oluşmaktadır. Az yağışlı iklim koşullarında gölün yüz ölçümü küçülmüştür. Zamanla daha da küçülen göl, günümüzdeki durumuna kavuşmuştur.

Türkiye’nin yüzölçümü bakımından ikinci büyük gölü olan Tuz Gölü üzerinde uçsuz bucaksız o beyazlık içerisinde olabildiğince yürümek insana huzur ve dinginlik veriyor. Özellikle fotoğrafçılar için tavsiyemiz suyun olduğu kış sonu baharın ilk günlerinde gitmeleri. Yazın resmen tuz çölü; ama o göz alıcı beyazlık her zaman etkileyeci güzel bir manzara  sunuyor bizlere.

Meal Planning Week of 6-18-17

Breakfasts: My fiance is pretty hooked on the whole frittata thing, so excuse me if you see fifty different frittata recipes in the weeks to come. I decided to go for a very fresh but bright flavor profile and I instantly gravitated toward basil. The idea of “Margherita” frittata was born. I picked up eggs, grape tomatoes, mozzarella (Daiya), onion, and spinach (still need my greens). At home I already basil (fresh), garlic, salt, and olive oil.

Lunches: I typically don’t do two meal preps with meat but when surveying the pantry I realized it made too much sense to make tuna salad. I’m extra, so I’m going to make a Tzatziki-esque sauce, slap that shit in a pita pocket, and chop up the other half of the cabbage head I have chillin’ in the fridge with some other vegetables, whip up a Greek vinaigrette, and also slap that shit in a pita pocket. I picked up some red wine vinegar, dijon, dill, yogurt (coconut sub), lemons, red onion, carrot, and pita. At home, I already had salt, tuna, cabbage, and garlic.

Dinner: Yep. Another Stew. File it to my complaint box. This one is a summer extravaganza. Green Quinoa Chili. It’s pretty much a soup base of green verde salsa and chicken stock. Delicioso! I picked up tomatillos, poblanos, Anaheim chilies, jalapenos, limes, onion, spinach, cilantro, and chicken stock. At home, I have ground turkey, quinoa, salt, black pepper, cumin (you’re all so shocked), ground coriander, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar.

Snacks: I’m finding myself needing a little more fat lately so, coconut chia seed pudding. I picked up unsweetened coconut flake (memo: do not eat the whole bag) and almond milk. I have chia seeds and sweetener. Other than that, got my fruit. Bananas and grapes this week! Oh, and protein shakes after the gym!

So, the sales and coupons were unkind to me so this came out to $64.83. Can I also just say this is the ugliest cart picture I’ve taken to date?

ÇANKIRI (04/2016)

Çankırı ilimiz gördüğüm kadarıyla turizme yönelik ciddi bir kalkınma hamlesi içerisinde. Tüm tarihi yerler, kale, cami, tuz mağarası ve müzeler neredeyse tamamında restorasyon ve çevre düzenleme çalışmaları vardı. Önümüzdeki yıl çalışmaların tamamlanması ile turizm canlanacaktır. Ülkemizin en önemli kaya tuzu üretim üssü olan Çankırı’yı , özellikle merak ettiğim tuz mağarası ve müzesini görmek için artık 2017′yi bekleyeceğiz.

Kids These Days

Salt & Straw, which I can confidently say is one of the worlds best and most creative ice-cream shops just unleashed a flex-storm of November flavors. It’s a “table-to-cone” Thanksgiving inspired menu; Cool Marketing ™.  

One of the standouts is the honey bourbon corn pudding- YES. You can actually taste the real bourbon in there. I can only imagine all the parents who have no idea there’s Henny in there and let their 5 year old order a triple scoop. 5 minutes in, little Timmy is LIT, and he’s stolen the keys to your minivan. Timmy’s turned up on Larchmont doing donuts and shit, windows down, blasting that new 1989 album. Man- kids these days. Salt & StrawTip: Also try the Turkey flavor. It’s made with real turkey and caramelized turkey skin.  Tip: Be ready to try every single flavor because they encourage it. It won’t help in your decision making tho.    Tip: The most boss move is doing a split scoop. You can get a single scoop- but 2 flavors.  Pricing: Single scoop $4.25; double scoop $6.25. When to come here: whenever you’re in the mood for ice-cream?  Where: 240 N Larchmont Blvd Los Angeles  Times: 10am-11pm everyday Phn: 323 466 0485
