Alara and crossiants
Of course we could get croissants in Turkey, but they aren't like the ones here.
Croissants in Belgium are light and flaky, they are soooo buttery. They have crusty flakes on the outside, and a wrapped yummy dough inside. Alara loves them, she loves them plain or with chocolate. She really is very cute about them, as she stills them from your plate...
We do feel very sorry for Seyfi, who sits there watching us while he eats his gluten free croissants, that are nice, but not as nice. However, we are very grateful that we have been able to find both gluten free sliced bread (the return of sandwiches!) and gluten free croissants.
The other day, Alara and I walked to a local bakery and got some plain and chocolate croissants. We couldn't wait until we got home, so we stopped under a tree and ate one plain and one chocolate. Alara had so much fun, calling it a picnic. We'll have to do it again soon!
