Another special occasion, another giant dish of baklava being prepared. “Bakllavaja” is the definite singular form of the noun. Grammar, I’m a-learnin’ it! This baklava is for a family member’s wedding we’re attending on Wednesday. The baklava isn’t finished but it’s baking away nicely and making the entire garage (where an extra oven is located) smell heavenly.
From another angle:
We finished class early today and I spent the afternoon hanging with the family. It’s too hot to do much so it’s a good day for lounging, watching tv, visiting the diaspora family members’ houses up the road for tiny cups of Turkish coffee, and naps.
