Russian Tea Cake – Sat. Oct. 8, 2016

Shannon picked up Erin about 2:30 this afternoon. They went shopping, then to a movie, “Queen of Katwe” the true story of a young girl from Uganda who became a champion chess player. Shan and Erin thought that the movie was very inspiring.

After the movie they went next door to the Tower Cafe for dinner. Erin brought home Russian tea cakes. I had already had my quota of calories for the day, but I couldn’t resist. The tea cake is also known as a Roly Poly or Mexcian Wedding Cake. It is a shortbread cookie with lots of nuts. Tower’s are about 3 inches in diameter, the equivalent to about 3 normal tea cakes. Clark suggested that I put a dollar bill next to the cookie to get a perspective.

Thanks, Erin!
