My Sweet Dates
I just couldn’t wait to share with you this sweet present that my parents sent us today. My favorite dates in the whole wide world: Algerian Deglet Noor Dates. To me, they are just the best dates ever: sweet and fingers sticky dates stuffed with my mother’s homemade almond paste. I am in heaven. My mother has been telling me all this week about the pounds and pounds of stuffed dates that she was making for my cousin’s wedding but I didn’t imagine a single minute that she had some made just for us. Now I will ask my hubby to hide them away because I can’t stop eating them. And because my mother knows how much I love cute boxes in all forms and shapes, she sent them in the cutest sugar box I have ever seen. Oh! And did I mention that my sister spoils me too with jam filled cookies, a cookbook and chocolate. I am in heaven. Just in heaven.
Merci beaucoup maman et papa pour tout votre amour. Merci aussi ma soeur chérie pour ta gentillesse et ta générosité.
