Karma Coming

When you invite your former student, now employee, to join in the socially-distanced potluck Thanksgiving, and he signs up to bring some eggplant salad and stuffed cabbage, which surprises you a little, because that seems pretty fancy cooking for a 23-year-old…

…but then it turns out that he’s living with his mom during shelter-in-place, and she loves to cook and feed people…

…and NOT ONLY does she send along sufficient portions of eggplant salad and stuffed cabbage, but she throws in a half-dozen containers of homemade Romanian sweets as well…

…AND a container of extra sweets AND a jar of pickled peppers for the host — well, that’s some karma coming back my way, my friends, and I will gladly take advantage.

Darius, what are those little pastry things with the cream and jam called? They are SO GOOD, I can’t stop eating them.

(Anand loves the cake, he says. Tell your mom.)
