This year we held a May Day BBQ at our house. There were many guests that were invited by a friend of ours, in fact, we'd never met the extra guests. As it is customary to gift the host/hostess with a dessert- we received a few that day. One of desserts, in particular, made me laugh. A woman that has never been to my home presented me with a covered silver platter and said, "This is for you, thank you for opening your home". Naturally, I thanked her and lifted the cover as my friend C stood by my side. To my surprise, there was a beautiful, yellow bundt cake sprinkled with powdered sugar under the lid...and it was already missing a big slice. I casually brought it into the house while our first time guest found a cozy chair near the spit where the lamb was roasting. I told C to close the door and we just giggled and giggled-and took a picture. I have proof, Greeks do know what a bundt cake is, they make them all of the time...and some of them are so delicious that they have to eat a slice before they bring it to the party!
Now here's a clip from one of my favorite scenes from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I couldn't help but think of this scene as we were giggling.
Have a great week everyone!
