Once every three weeks, this gentle woman, dressed in a long gathered skirt and peasant blouse, comes into our office with a red-riding-style basket full of the freshest, home-baked vegetarian samosas and apple pies. The pastry is light and flaky, the fillings plump and the tastiest thing since forever. They cost $3 each or 2 for $5 and are big enough for a meal. Today, I didn’t just buy one for my lunch, I bought a heap for dinner too and it all cost me $13 total. My family fell in love with them too. How she makes any money from them I sure don’t know but I am grateful that she sees fit to bake for us. The surrounding cafes are not keen on her but stay silent as long as she only comes around every three weeks. So she has a wide circuit she services over the three weeks and then gets back to us and I welcome her each time with open arms.
