Trying something new. Our family tries to follow this motto but it doesn’t always work. Sometimes, we get so focused on the day to day routine that ‘trying something new’ doesn’t always fit. So, we think on a smaller scale like trying something new at a new place that you’ve never visited or trying something new at a familiar place. That still counts as ‘something new’ and gives us the chance to stretch our wings and expand our horizons.
Enter the Greek almond cookie. See this lovely delectable morsel of goodness? Well, I had them when I was growing up but my daughter has never had one until now. We enter a Greek bakery that we’ve never been to before and do some browsing. I couldn’t resist the spinach pies (aka spanakopita) and my big kid eyeballed the icing sugar on the Greek almond cookie. She likes almonds and she likes icing sugar but she’s never had the two together in this way before.
End result: she devoured her Greek almond cookie and discovered a new flavour combination. Personally, I thought it was a bit too sweet but then again, it could just be that my palate has changed over the years. There’s no denying that it was delicious – crunchy, light but rich, some almond bits, and a decent helping of icing sugar.
Yep, this was a good adventure and great incentive to do it again!
