Because today is National Croissant Day, our Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is Croissant. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things! Here’s what I did with it…
Did you know that the croissant began as a pastry known as a kipferl, which originated in Austria. Apparently, during the Ottoman siege of Vienna, a baker decided to create pastries in the shape of crescents, an important Turkish symbol, as a means of attempting to make peace. Over the next 200 years or so, the French took it upon themselves to make the kipferl a little more fancy, transforming it into the buttery, flaky croissant we know today.
All of that information came from the National Today website. I didn’t do any actual research and am just trusting that their scholars are on the ball.
Personally, I’m a fan of a croissant. They’re flaky and soft and buttery… what’s not to like? If I have the option, I think I’d rather have breakfast on a croissant than on a biscuit, though I’m pretty sure Burger King is the only drive through that does the “Croissanwich.”
Okay… that’s enough… I’m making myself hungry.
Thanks to everyone who participated this week and shared your links! Please visit their blogs, give them a follow, and take a look at how they interpreted the prompt.
