For Andrew's big day, I got him a pair of slippers that were from Kyrgyzstan. I lucked out and found them on line. I felt he needed his own pair of Kyrgyz slippers for his Kyrgyz dinner.
Also notice are beautiful Kyrgyz pillow cases that are behind us! I love these!
Our slippers from Kyrgyzstan. Alisha and her boyfriend Josh also have some but I didn't get a picture of theirs.
Andrew is happy as could be with both his Grandma's!
In Kyrgyzstan they serve cucumbers and tomatoes as salad. So that is what I did!
This is Borsok. It was fun to make, and tasted great with some jam on it!
This is Nan. Flat bread with onions in it. It reminded me of a Pita. It was also good!
These were the potatoe vereniki I made. They took forever, and I'm not sure if I would ever make them again. They did taste okay, but Alisha said the smell of these reminded her the most of Kyrgyzstan. I had to agree!
These were the Shashlik! We had to make these because Cain had these when we went to the Twelve Fireplaces in Kyrgyzstan. It was our favorite meal while visiting Kyrgyzstan, so in honor of the Twelve Fireplaces, Cain was going to go outside and cook them on the grill, because in the middle of winter they went out and cooked our food when we were at the Twelve Fireplaces, but unfortunately despite our best efforts the grill wasn't working, even though we checked it the day before. So Cain cooked them inside.
We have to yet, teach Andrew and Matthew some Kyrgyzstan table manners, or should I say floor manners! It was a bit tough for them to sit on the floor and eat without getting distracted.
Andrew acting like a baby!
