I'm Just a Grandma's Boy

I loved spending time in the summer at my grandparents' home.  It was a peaceful place compared to my own home and my grandmother's food was always great.

My grandparents never had junk food in their home.  Dessert was an orange rather than a Twinkie.  But, once a week, my grandmother did treat herself to a richly creamy and sugary dessert.  After church on Sunday, she would go to Astoria Bakery and buy herself a sfogliatelle.  I am going to go out today to find myself a sfogliatelle.  This means that I am not going to be able to write much now.  Instead, I will leave you with film clips to watch.  In line with this week's man-child theme, these film clips feature adults acting like children. 

Have a nice day.
