Leftovers. The word, in most families, is synonymous with the Thanksgiving holiday. Following the recipe for the Center City sandwich, found at South Street's Chef's Market (where all of the sandwiches are named after parts of Philadelphia), you can use your own roasted turkey, as the Chef's Market does theirs. But with this sandwich, you'll escape the world of stuffing and cranberry sauce, because the Center City sandwich adds a French twist with Brie cheese, honey mustard sauce, lettuce and tomato, all on a French roll.

It's that season again - turkey time - though not for the reasons you might expect at El Rey near Rittenhouse Square. "Pavo con mole" - turkey with spicy-sweet mole sauce - is a traditional dish at several big Mexican events, the latest being the "Día de los Muertos. " For the creepy-fun of Day of the Dead festivities in early November, chef Dionicio Jimenez naturally chose a "black mole," which differs from the more common, chocolaty "poblano" variation in that it is more complex, more bittersweet, more redolent of almonds and peanuts than sesame, and kissed with the smoke of tortilla ashes.

The safe way to thaw a frozen turkey is in the refrigerator, but often there isn't enough room in the refrigerator to make that a practical option. If your turkey is reasonably small, and you have a microwave oven, you can thaw it there. Thawing procedures vary by oven, however, so you will need to check the manual carefully for instructions. You should plan to thaw the turkey right before cooking. A somewhat more cumbersome method is to place the turkey in a heavy-duty freezer bag and carefully tie it closed.

The petty, imbecilic way both Greece and Turkey competed over a pile of rocks off the Turkish coast, with warships lining up against each other before American diplomat Richard C. Holbrooke cooled them off, surely demonstrates that when they behave like this neither deserves to be a member of the European Union. Yet one is in and one is out. One is regarded, for all its posturing over relations with Turkey, Cyprus and Macedonia, as European, civilized, Christian and economically mature.

AKCAKALE, Turkey - Turkey sanctioned further military action against Syria on Thursday and bombarded targets across the border with artillery for a second day, raising the stakes in a conflict that increasingly is bleeding outside Syrian territory. Although both sides moved to calm tensions, Turkey's parliament overwhelmingly approved a bill allowing the military to conduct cross-border operations into Syria - making clear that Ankara has options that do not involve its Western or Arab allies.

A number of things about the new American republic, including the choice of the eagle as a national symbol, annoyed Benjamin Franklin. He would have preferred the turkey, and shared his thoughts on the subject in this letter written to his daughter from France in 1784. (This selection was provided by Roy Goodman, research librarian of the American Philosophical Society.) For my own part, I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character; he does not get his living honestly.

ANKARA, Turkey - Turkey said Monday that it would push NATO to consider Syria's downing of a Turkish jet as an attack on the whole military alliance. The announcement came on the eve of a meeting by NATO's governing body to discuss the incident. Despite deep frustration among many NATO countries over the conflict in Syria, where the opposition says President Bashar al-Assad's crackdown on an increasingly armed popular uprising has killed 14,000 people, it's highly unlikely the military alliance will take armed action against the Arab state.

ANKARA, Turkey - Thousands of demonstrators on Sunday staged the largest protest yet against plans by Turkey's Islamic-rooted government to curb abortion, which critics say will amount to a virtual ban. Around 3,000 women - their ages ranging from 20 to 60 years old - gathered at a square in Istanbul's Kadikoy district. Some carried banners that read "my body, my choice" and shouted antigovernment slogans. Many of the women were accompanied by husbands and boyfriends.

After learning about the suicide bombings at two synagogues, Neve Shalom and Beth Israel, in Istanbul on Saturday, I had a terrible sense of d?j? vu. I began sending e-mails seeking answers to two questions: Had any friends or acquaintances been hurt or killed? Luckily, no. And second, who were the bombers? Istanbul, and by extension Turkey, has become my second home. I know Istanbul's streets and neighborhoods as well as the neighborhoods of Philadelphia. And because I know people of many faiths - Jewish, Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, devout and moderate Muslims - I have put great hope in Turkey as an example to the West that there is a bright future for a predominantly Muslim country with a secular constitution.

ISSUE | TURKEY Extradite Gulen The United States should extradite Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish citizen, as is allowed under an existing treaty ("Turkey asks U.S. officials to hold Pa. cleric," Sunday). We have ample evidence that last month's attempted coup was staged by the Fethullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), led by military officers affiliated with the group. It was also supported by nonmiltary individuals and groups affiliated with Gulen. Gulen is the prime suspect in 55 criminal indictments.

Turkey on Saturday called on U.S. officials to detain an Islamic leader based in the Poconos, whom they blame for last month's abortive Turkish military coup attempt that killed more than 200 people. The Chief Prosecutor's Office in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, wrote the letter demanding the U.S. detain Fethullah Gulen while they prepare a formal extradition request with proof of his wrongdoing. In the letter, prosecutors call Gulen the leader of "Fethullah Terrorist Organization" and blame his group for leading the coup attempt, the Turkish national Anadolu news agency said in a statement.

This is easy, breezy, no-cook meal assembly. You know the drill: The fewer the ingredients in a recipe, the better their quality should be. So go for the naturally roasted turkey breast at the deli counter and an oil-packed brand of canned tuna that you trust. If your dinner companions are unfamiliar with tonnato, you don't need to explain it as "a pureed tuna sauce" until after they've had a bite or two. Tonnato is often made with egg yolks, but this one's thickened with pureed chickpeas, a bit of yogurt, and less olive oil than usual.

ISSUE | TURKEY Extradite cleric The time has come for the United States to recognize that exiled Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen is not a man of honor - he is a traitor ("Turkey requests cleric's extraditon," Wednesday). Through his network of henchmen, Gulen instructed and encouraged a military coup that failed earlier this month. Civilians, police, and young soldiers were drawn into a situation that could and should have been avoided. Lives have been lost unnecessarily, and families are suffering.

Could an old man in Pennsylvania really be responsible for an attempted coup that nearly unseated a NATO ally and threatens America's fight against ISIS? That's the claim of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is demanding that the United States extradite Fethullah Gulen, a 77-year-old Turkish cleric living on a 26-acre retreat in Saylorsburg, whom he blames for orchestrating the failed coup. Thanks to the Gulen uproar, Turkish media are filled with anti-American conspiracy theories charging Washington with endorsing the plot - a charge even some of Erdogan's cabinet ministers are making.

TURKEY HAS always had a little bit of a problem with the truth. For decades, the Turkish government has denied that it executed the first real genocide in modern times when it eliminated the Christian Armenian population that had been living within the territories of the Ottoman Empire. According to Samantha Power in her magisterial book A Problem From Hell , "Beginning in March 1915, [the New York Times] spoke of Turkish 'massacres,' 'slaughter,' and 'atrocities' against the Armenians, relaying accounts by missionaries, Red Cross officials, local religious authorities and survivors of mass executions.

  Tension heated up Saturday between the U.S. and Turkey over who to blame for the country's failed   military coup ,   even as the reclusive Muslim cleric whom the Turkish government holds responsible denied from his Poconos compound that he had anything to do with the plot. Fethullah Gulen, a former ally turned bitter enemy of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, condemned the violent attempt to overthrow the government of his native country during an interview with the Associated Press at his 26-acre gated property in Saylorsburg, Monroe County.

By Micah Meadowcroft This year's Fourth of July weekend went more smoothly than last year's. Then I spent part of the weekend sleeping fitfully on a backpack, a gym bag, and two chairs stuffed together outside an airport coffee kiosk. All because there was a worry that I was a terrorist. Flying to the United States from Dublin, you're supposed to arrive three hours before takeoff. The airport's Terminal 2 contains a U.S preclearance facility, meaning that after a second round of security - TSA-approved - and a chat with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, passengers flying to the states are considered domestic arrivals.

Like many in the Philadelphia area, Bryan Colangelo has heard all the reports about Dario Saric. A Croatian newspaper reported that Saric, a Croatia native, said he'll play for the 76ers in the 2016-17 season. A European reporter added that the 6-foot-10 forward said the same thing to his teammates on Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League. "I don't want to go on hearsay and what might have been said by him or what his friends are telling people he's telling them," said Colangelo, who was named the Sixers' president of basketball operations in April.
