Curt (along with 40 Orthodox saints) celebrated his birthday on March 22. For his birthday breakfast we had french toast with orange maple whipped cream, and then he opened presents from his family. Curt’s mom sent a German chocolate cake mix and frosting, so we made sure to have that as his birthday cake. We had a lot going on that day, so we prepared a lot of the food the day before. We had a missionary couple from the LDS church in the village to see our puppet theater club, which they funded, preform their first theater production (more to come!), so they attended Curt’s birthday dinner as well. The masă consisted of mămăligă, brînza de oiae, eggs, meat, sarmale, dates stuffed with smoked walnuts, greek salad, and pajoale de post. Happy Birthday, Curt!
