Sesame Baklava (Baklavas Sousamenios)

Serving this delightful and easy version of baklava – a layered sweet made with thin phyllo sheets – is an old custom on Christmas Eve in Thrace, and other areas of Greece. Made with olive oil, the pastry meets Greek Orthodox Lenten-type fasting guidelines, and it’s a delicious alternative to other versions of baklava, especially for those who avoid nuts.

Wordless Wednesday: Christmas “Eve”

My husband sent this to me. I said, “I don’t get it.”

He said, “Just look at it.”

I said, “I still don’t get it.”

So, he very slowly said, “Christmas….EVE.”

I said, “OHHHHHHH, duh! HAHAHA.”

Christmas Past

When it was much later than Santa probably wanted it to be, we’d pack up and drive home and the four of us would go to bed certain we’d never be able to sleep, and likely were asleep within minutes of laying down.
