My very first stop on my day trips from Lesvos to Ayvalik is Cafe Le Petit. This little cafe seves the most delicious breakfast in town. I always make the same choice and am never disappointed and the portions are perfect. Breakfast for me is a combination of sweet and savory, tasty cheese, walnuts, olives, cucumber, dried tomatoes, green pepper, preseved fruit, figs and plums, olive oil with rosmary and lightly toasted bread. There are delicious herbal teas, Turkish coffee and fresh orange juice too. All presented with a warm Turkish smile. I hope to be back there soon.


Today we had okra and a green salad for lunch and it was delicious. I washed and cut the ends off the okra. Then I par boiled them before adding them to a frying pan with sauteed onion and garlic. I also added a chopped tomato and added a little water. I placed a lid over the top and tuned the heat down to a simmer and left it for about 15 minutes. The green salad was simple, lettuce, spring onions and cucumber with a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of apple cider vinegar. A good lunch.
