Sizdah-bedar

At the end of the Norooz festivities, on the 13th day of Spring, or sizdah-bedar, literally ‘thirteen to out’, Iranians, by tradition, go outdoors for a family picnic to play games, dance, ramp around and, of course, eat.  Lettuce and “sekanjehbin”, a heavenly tasting syrup made of vinegar and honey, is among the popular food item for this day. Other foods of the day include noodle soup, and broad-bean mixed rice, layered with large cubes of lamb or beef.

Mints stems stay fresh in vase for at least 48 hours and add lively smell to my kitchen. I love the smell and the site of it, especially in my new gorgeous vase – a gift from a dear friend, made by hand in Mashhad, Iran.
