On Sunday, we hosted one of Scott's Turkish colleagues for dinner at our house while he was in town for a work meeting. When he arrived at our house, he gave me this box as a hostess gift.
I wanted to open it and eat the entire box before dinner since it contained baklava from the Turkish establishment I nicknamed "Baklava Heaven" while we were visiting Istanbul! Luckily, I restrained myself and politely served (a few) pieces of the delicious baklava with our dessert. And now all week I have slowly been indulging in this Turkish treat that is probably my most favorite food from our time in Istanbul. And of course Scott's colleague is welcome at our house anytime he brings back more of this heavenly dessert straight from the source!!
