Sweets

I've missed the last two Tea Tuesdays (in-laws in town), but I'm excited to share this Turkish dessert with you. It is delicious enjoyed with a strong little cup of Turkish tea. Don't ask me to give you its proper name! It's a wonderful concoction from a restaurant that we frequent often, a pudding of types with slivered almonds on the inside and generous crushed pistachios on the outside. Dessert can be such a sweet spot in the midst of life. My fb friends may have already heard, but last week I was in the juror pool for a murder trial - so glad I was not selected. That would have been quite a challenge. I also had a sticky accelerator pedal in my truck the same day, and luckily stopped to have it checked out. It jammed on the mechanic who test-drove it! Thankfully no one was hurt, and it was a fairly easy fix. As mentioned, my in-laws were also here. My FIL went to town on our yard, pulling out bushes that died in the freeze, planting new ones, and stringing wire trellises for my jasmine. I was so thankful for his help out there. I need to pull a few more weeds, have it mulched, and then will probably ignore the garden until autumn, as the mosquitoes and warm weather are returning. I look forward to catching up with all of you!

Wow, I'm getting hungry just looking at that concoction. If it tastes as good as it looks, it is perfect. I love pistachios, so this would be a perfect dessert. Of course, I would prefer dark, strong Turkish coffee, but today is Tea, so here we are.

I was actually glad to read your accelerator stuck on the mechanic. Now how many times does that happen? Sometimes they think we make things up. Also, glad you didn't have to do jury duty on a murder trial.

Happy Tea Tuesday and enjoy that Turkish Tea.
