My husband has always had a boring birthday and often forgotten due to the fact that it comes two days after Christmas when everyone has had too much of everything.
But this year, we were just starting to enjoy our morning coffee, when our grandson came in with a bag of goodies from Bakery Nouveau! What a feast!
There were twice baked chocolate croissants, an apricot pastry, a cranberry-filled pastry and a very unusual selection: a pastry with butternut squash filling and pumpkin seeds on top.
We cut everything into fourths so we could each sample the different tastes, but we couldn’t make it through this embarrassment of riches. I would like to recommend the apricot and the butternut squash pastries.
