On Saturday I bought four of these Mediterranean cakes from the Turkish stall for a mere £9:90! I wish In had the money to buy more! These are wonderful cakes which I first tasted in Israel years ago and are found all over the Middle East (covered in dust in Syria mind) or so I believe. Wonderful things to eat, a great variety of fillings, not sure what this one was but the others had walnuts and sticky sweet stuff. Almost anything that grows can be found as a filling which occasionally makes them very heavy, he sells them by weight rather than individual price!
I managed to avoid eating them all in one go and adding a stone to my fat and allowed them to go down individually day by day. Now the stalls have gone and nobody near here sell such things. I think it is time they did! Maybe one of the craft stalls can come up with this idea and we can have another special craft day?
Sounds good to me and my weight problem.
There I was happily finishing off the Christmas cards this morning, only a few to do and check all the names on the (short) list. Happily I began to pack them into their specified order for posting ensuring each of the girls had the Gift card in the Christmas card when I realised I had one more niece than I thought! Disaster! Now instead of grinning evilly when mentioning my Christmas has been done I have to go out again and find yet another Gift card! More expense! Still they prefer Gift cards as it makes it easier to choose what they want rather than what I give them. It is easier for me when it comes time to post them and above all I am really pleased 'Poundland' do these Gift Cards now!
