Today I went with my sister, brother-in-law and nephew to the Holy Trinity Monastery in Smith Creek.
I had the cake on the right, with raisins and nuts in it. The other is a Lenten version of Kourabiethes, a Greek butter cookie with almonds, brushed with orange flower and rolled in confectioners sugar. The Fruit Delight candy is basically Turkish Delight with fruit or nuts in it, and made without gelatin.
I hope we can go back for a visit in the summer. Even though it’s supposed to be spring, on the way home we drove through sunshine, rain, hail, and snow – basically in that order, over and over again! But there’s a path with benches that goes around the monastery, beside the lake, and it would be lovely when it’s warm and the sun is out.
