Soooo...yesterday was the ELC-hosted Thanksgiving dinner at my university.  I got some great potluck ideas from other members, but unfortunately, things like pumpkin and sweet potatoes are a) hard to find and b) really expensive.  So I decided to make a Turkish-style recipe, which, being in Turkey, made sense.  The recipe is from almostturkish.blogs pot.com.  I will post the link below.  It was so, so yummy.  It's a quick bread, with chunks of black olives, green onions, and mint.  I added some chopped parsley too.  The recipe calls for "black seeds" which are called nigella seeds.  I left them out. They're easy enough to find here, but I couldn't justify buying an entire container for just a couple of spoonfuls.  It didn't affect the flavor at all.  It was still a big hit.

It's also very pretty, as you will see.

This does look yummy. I think my family would like it, we'll have to give it a try sometime.

I'm glad that you found something to take\make.  I'm glad to hear it was such a good success.  It sounds very good.  I think I'll try this.  I thought the black seeds were black sesame seeds.  Guess not.  Sounds Delicious.  I love good, thick, large, meatier not salty black olives which are very hard to find here but plenty of the others.  Thanks for this recipe.

Yum - this looks great.  Whenever I'm in a bread shop that makes olive bread (any kind of olive), I end up buying a loaf.  Now I can make my own!
