On Monday night Will requested a full Turkish breakfast for Tuesday morning. Since it was too late to actually get everything I needed I promised him we would have it on Wednesday morning. Evidently the other kids didn't hear this idea, because when they came in for breakfast and saw what we were having they cheered.
Look how excited they are to be eating all this yummy food! Actually, they call this smiling like a Turk.

Yes, there are some kids smiling. No, my daughter isn't. She's good. She's really good!
So for breakfast they had a boiled egg, olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, sliced apples, salami, fried cheese, bread, and jelly. I also made a pot of Turkish tea. Jacob chose to have a glass of apple juice instead.
