THINGS THAT ARE PROBABLY MY PATRONUS

Jumping on @joemurphy's bandwagon.
  1. Babcia Ofelia
    Pictured here with my uncle, Ofelia is my grandfather's first cousin by marriage & lives on a farm in the village where my great-grandmother was born. She's strong-bodied & strong-willed & hilarious & makes the best wine & the best zurek (a traditional soup) you will ever have - & you'll have a lot because she'll make you.
  2. Turkish Coffee, Polish style
  3. Miranda Hart
  4. This Betty Crocker cookbook
    Given to my grandmother by her mother as a wedding gift in 1954. It contains my favorite brownie & sugar cookie recipes, and handwritten by my grandmother in the endpapers are our family spaghetti sauce & sweet potato stuffing recipes.
  5. A red or green Haribo gold-bear
  6. My Kitchen Aid
  7. An obwarzanek
    Anyone who tells you this is a bagel is a liar from the pits of hell.
  8. The Anne of Green Gables Series
  9. Smok Wawelski (The Wawel Dragon)
  10. Ikea
