HALVA, ANYONE?


 When I was a kid, I read MAD Magazine faithfully.  I soon became aware that halva, a type of confectionery originating from Persia was often referred to. I now googled and can't find a reason, but it was so. That said, it was years before I ever tried halva. Crumbly and sweet, and I like it, though hardly ever buy any.

YANKEE IN NICE

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
