It's my birthday and I'm celebrating! I find as I grow older it's the simple things that make me happy. As I dashed into the store to get bread after church I noticed mine and Ralph's favorite Romanian pastry was being put on the shelf - fresh out of the oven! When we moved to Bucharest in September we were living in chaos for a few days and would run to the store for breakfast each morning. We discovered these flaky, tender pastries that were glazed and sprinkled with pecans. The inside was like the middle of a pecan pie. We quickly decided we could NOT do this every morning or we'd have to buy new clothes to fit our expanding waistlines. We save this delicious pleasure for the taste buds for special occasions. Now you know why I was so excited to see them warm and fresh! I bought two - birthdays are fun to share. So for my birthday I indulged and it was worth EVERY calorie!
Thank you one and all for the birthday greetings - it was a great day!
