My other night’s dream kind of became reality yesterday. As you know my plan was to make Nana jafari karafs (mint, parsley and celery stew). But later in the day as I went to soak the herbs, I noticed that we were fresh out of mint. No worries I thought, I just make the celery dish with tomato puree. But then I realised that we did not have any tomato puree either and so off I went to the shops to buy one. But guess what, I had forgotten my wallet at home and so all the good that came out of my trip to the shops was that I had recycled some bottles and got harassed by some guy.
‘I don’t really feel like going home and walking all the way back again’ I though to myself whilst jumping up and down on the guy’s windpipe (I find that very therapeutic) and then suddenly I had a breakthrough, Baghali-polo (lamb with broad beans and dill rice). And Baghali-polo it was.

Hi Shirin - Something like this happened to me 2 many years ago. I forgot to take my wallet while I was on a shopping spree. So imagine I'm standing at the cash register with all the goodies and got no money to pay for. I didn't know what to do or say, so I told the girl behind the register that I forgot my wallet in my car. I'll go and get it in a flash. I got such an attitude that words can not describe. However, back at home, I had no Baghali-Polo waiting 4 me. I love Baghali-Polo. Cheers :)
