The night before my husband started chemotherapy, we had a family feast. My parents, my in-laws, M's aunts and uncles and cousins, and lots of friends came to our little apartment and we feasted. After all, chemo is supposed to kill your appetite, cause horrific nausea, and in all other ways destroy your enjoyment of food, right?
Well, as it turned out, M's experience with chemo wasn't that bad. But that feast was epic. Granda made one of M's childhood favorites- beef stroganoff. And I made dolmades- the same dish I cooked for M on our first date.
Ever since, M's extended family have remembered those dolmades. I get asked for the recipe constantly. When a friend of M's had her end-of-chemo party to celebrate beating her lymphoma, I made another batch for that party. They're an institution around here.
And now, you can enjoy the delicious grape leaf love.
My recipe for dolmades is up at Vegging for Health!
