when laura was in the states, she would NEVER have pastries for breakfast. ok, not never, but not that often. yet in buenos aires, she eats them with the reckless abandon of a crackhead looking for a fix. what you see to the left is not what she has on special occasions or even on weekends. it is was she has every single day. black coffee, 3 medialunas (argentine croissants) if she’s not that hungry, and whatever cookies the cafe decides to throw in for good measure. today it was alfajores, which are delightful argentine treats created by sandwiching dulce de leche between two shortbread cookies. why does she do this? why does she think it’s ok? if you have any ideas, please let her know.
