Our fourth day in Slovakia was a Sunday. Our hosts planned a wonderful day for us with them and their extended family at the house where we were staying. It was going to be a picnic in Pekľany!
The weather was absolutely perfect. Beautiful blue sky, warm sunshine, and a nice light breeze. It was going to be a day of family, food, and fun. I was looking forward to meeting everyone.
Marta was preparing a wonderful lunch for us. Before lunch she brought us the most delicious pastries she picked up at a bakery.
But this would just be the beginning of all the wonderful foods we would get to enjoy that day.
As everyone started to arrive so did more food and drink. Next, we enjoyed some delicious homemade puff pastry made by one of ladies (Alzbeta). They were light and airy and had rye seeds on them and some filled cookies too.
Next up: Marta’s homemade chicken soup (It was just like my grandma used to make!) served with potatoes and carrots.
This was just the beginning! There was much more to come!
