Cake Napoleon, and a Renaissance Getaway





My Mother's Day started with a slice of cake Napoleon, that I made, following my mother's recipe
The day was promising a good weather for some outdoor activities. What kind? Well, have a piece of that cake, and get comfortable: we are going to Oklahoma Renaissance Festival.











                              Where am I?




Really? Do I need to dress up? Which one shell I choose?


Amm? May be not this time...

That's better...




That way!





Transportation option:




That is one of the "high-tech" brooms, if you ask me...


My head is spinning and I am hungry. 
What do they serve in the Castle?
Turkey leg!

A Turkey leg and a root beer "to go" XV century style...

As good as it could be...

See you,
Marina

    1. I would prefer a real beer with that turkey leg but I had to drive, and I have this strict rule: don't drink and drive! :)

    1. Lol! Norma, you are amazing! personally, I can't start my day with a slice of the cake. I am not a big sweet eater, and even if I eat a small slice of the cake, I need something savory... :)

    1. Thanks! I am not that motivated by desserts, I can get out of bed for a savory dish, but desserts I make just a few times per year (baked desserts) :)
