This place in space is dedicated and devoted to Adriana Carmen Papara, a most wonderful woman and magnificent soul.

These were the words she chose to display in a Profile:

"Beautiful are the things we can see,
More beautiful the ones we can understand,
But the most beautiful are those we cannot embrace
with our mind."

Being very interested in food and cooking, I often asked Adriana to send me pictures of what she was eating.  I think her mother must be the best cook in Medias, if not Romania.  An artist.

Ghiveci, my favorite.

Sauté onions and green peppers, cut up in small pieces. (2 each)
Add celery, carrots, parsley root, and continue sauté.
Then add a little water and some green beans.

Boil. Add pepper, and salt when carrots are almost done.
Add eggplant pieces. Not too small.
Add little tomato pieces (2 tomatoes).

Potatoes optional (or rice)

Add parsley.
