Good morning, dear friends! few days ago something magical happened! Our babyboy walked for the very first time! All of a sudden he started walking on hiw own without our help just like that…Oh God, it was such an unforgettable experience! I can’t put it into words how it felt. Our little bird opens his wings and flies on his own…He walks as if he were drunk, his steps are unsteady and he streches his hands in order to balance but he ‘ll get the hang of it!
A collegue of mine who comes from Northern Greece told me that there is a tradition there called «perpatopita» (walkpie). When a toddler takes his first steps, they make a pie to celebrate it and to make his steps sweet! Even if I come from Patras and live in Zakynthos I decided to honour this lovely tradition! My idea was to make a vegan orange pie with syrup and my adorable hubby realized it! The result was out of this world! He made the best orange pie I have ever had! This is a keeper, friends! Do try it!
Kisses and hugs!
