Apple Strudel

Now in the cold days, Goulash with Gnocchi and Apple Strudel for dessert. Mom used to cook for my birthday these delicious recipes. I love them. I associate them to the best years of my childhood and to our wonderful family life.

Mom doing Apple Strudel was always a feast day. We kids around her watching and pretending to help around the big table covered with a white clothe with flour where she worked the dough tirelessly with the rolling-pin, folding and stretching, folding and stretching until the dough was almost transparent. And then with the apple mix on top of it, she always managed to do the magic trick with the clothe to roll up everything and make the perfect strudel. It was a show for us. We clapped in anticipation although we knew we had to help to clean up the mess around and set the table for dinner. Then we would feel the delicious smell coming from the oven in the kitchen. And finally the best part: everybody together to celebrate!
