Tort Eufrosina


Separate eggs. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until a foam is obtained, add the lemon juice, sugar and continue beating until the foam hardens. Gradually add the yolks, oil, a little lemon peel, baking powder and flour mixing well. A soft, liquid composition is obtained, which is poured into a round pan, on a baking sheet, and baked for about 35 minutes. We'll get a fluffy white pandispan.


Boil the water with the sugar in a kettle together with a teaspoon of orange peel kept in sugar in a jar, I let it boil for about 5 minutes. After the kettle is removed from the heat, add the rum essence or other essences that you like.

After the top and the syrup have cooled, cut the top into two parts (the base must be thicker than the lid) and syrup it.

Hazelnut cream and vanilla icing: heat the milk in a kettle. Separately, in a saucepan, mix the yolks with the sugar, vanilla seeds and flour. Slowly pour the hot milk, mix well and then put the pan back on the fire. Add the vanilla pod. Boil until thickened. When it started to thicken, stir a little more, then take the fire. Remove the vanilla pod, add the butter and mix well. Leave to cool. If you taste it, you will see that the cream is not very sweet at the moment, but don't worry because we will add more later.

We pour a small part of the cream obtained in a bowl, to use it later as a cake icing.

The hazelnuts are broken, their skins are not removed, but they are fried in a saucepan with a little salt. No oil needed. They brown well, don't be afraid if the skin turns black, because we will peel them anyway. It must penetrate well inside. After the hazelnuts have cooled, they are peeled and passed through a coffee grinder to obtain a fine powder.

Now, the cream that remained in the pan mixes well with the ground hazelnuts earlier and with a cup (about 150 ml) of whipped cream (I use Megle) beaten a little beforehand. Mix with the mixer to even out the hazelnut powder. This is the hazelnut cream that fills the cake.

The set:

Heat a tablespoon of milk, then add the broken white chocolate in the pieces and mix well until the chocolate melts.

Pour white chocolate on the cake lid, then the vanilla cream stopped earlier in the bowl. Then beat the rest of the liquid cream until it becomes silky and creamy, but not hard, decorate the sides of the cake.

Garnish with whipped cream, sprinkle with sugar-colored flowers.

For a final cough, heat a little milk again (another tablespoon), in which you put the pieces of dark chocolate, mix well until it melts and drip this icing over the cake. For wishing, I used purchased chocolate letters, but you can write with anything you want.

Let cool before serving.

Portions: 15

Total time: about 2 hours

Pilgrimage to the crypt of the woman who was poisoned by love

Bellu Cemetery, autumn. Nothing morbid in the light of day. The smell of incense, old people come to whisper to the wives of the past in the world of the immortal the last words of love, priests sanctifying the cage for the beggars who make their century among the crosses.
An idyllic image for the poets of the day who seek inspiration in dramas hidden under crypts. Even if the old candle lighters, bearers of the legends of each tomb, also made their way to the world beyond, some women still know the most shocking stories that ended in the Bellu countryside. Most of all, the drama of Eufrosina reached the lips of all the occasional visitors to the cemetery. So disturbing was the woman's fate that the crypt turned into a place of pilgrimage. Not for religious processions, because suicides cannot be understood in church dogmas, but rather out of compassion gather & # 8222 pilgrims & # 8221 at the Euphrosyne monument. & # 8222For 30 years I have been lighting candles and putting flowers on the tombs in Bellu. I read many books in my youth, but nothing impressed me more than the story of the crypt in number 18 bis. I know her from her mother, who has worked here all her life. My husband also knows it, who learns in his youth on the benches of the main alley. The writers came here and asked me for details. I don't know if they wrote this story, but Eufrosina's grave certainly made them think. Now I have to convince visitors not to light so many candles on the bronze statue & # 8221, says Elena Oprisanescu, the caretaker of the crypt.
At first glance, the monument in & # 8222figure 18 bis & # 8221, as the hundred-year-old tomb is inscribed in scripts, looks like a bronze work of art. A life-size coffin, a woman stretched out with her hands on her chest and a sorrowful man crying on his knees, as if apologizing for something he did not look at easily.
& # 8222It all started with the divorce of the Porroineanu couple. Two children were to be separated from each other from early childhood. The mother kept the boy, and the father would obtain custody of the little girl Eufrosina. Frustrated for some reason, the ex-husbands kept trying to forget each other. The children of wealthy people, the two brothers went to study in France, unaware of each other & # 8221, Elena continues her story.
Meanwhile, we approach the bronze statue. No cross, no biblical sign. On the slab of the tomb, however, a coiled snake watches. A sign that a mortal sin is hiding in the underground grave. Looking closely at the catafalque, the man's expression makes us shiver. The aged bronze was & # 8222 modeled & # 8221 with such mastery, and the proportions of the two characters respect reality so much that the regrets continue with the same intensity even after a century.
& # 8222Destination would play a prank on the Porroineanu brothers. Reaching the peak of her age, Eufrosina meets the man of her dreams. Away from home, the woman falls in love with a Romanian student who is also studying in France. A crazy love is between the two. Something unknown brings them so close that they get married without caring about those at home & # 8221, says the caretaker of the tomb while she hardly peels off the wax spilled on the body of the unfortunate model in bronze.
We go around the statue to discover other documents. We see nothing but the name of the master who immortalized in metal the scene of the young woman's death. & # 8222R. Romanelli & # 8221, a small engraved signature, reminds us that all the rich families used to order their funerary monuments from Italy.
& # 8222The newlyweds arrive in Romania and announce a party in honor of their wedding. Eufrosina announces to her father that it's time to see her mother again. It was a good opportunity for her parents to meet the man she fell in love with. Not knowing that her daughter also married the chosen man, Eufrosina's father is shocked. A secret hidden secret would change his daughter's life. He meets the woman he had divorced a long time ago and tells her what misfortune their children had had. The children of the Porroineanu family had married in France, without knowing that they are in fact brothers & # 8221, Elena continues the story.
On the back of the coffin we find other small inscriptions. Eufrosina's name and year of death: 1902. We find out that no one from the Porroineanu family has visited the tomb. An old woman, Maria, passed by two years ago but since then no one in the family. & # 8222He was 93 years old. God knows if she didn't perish too, & # 8221 say local guards. I look forward to the outcome of the story, although it was not hard to guess.
& # 8222Even on the evening before the party, Eufrosina finds out that she married her brother. Unintentional incest destroyed in an instant any desire for life in a woman's soul. It is said that he accepted the news with honor, until the first moment of loneliness. She was poisoned without hesitation, leaving the sin of incest on the shoulders of the survivors & # 8221, says the caretaker of the grave affected.
Truth or legend, the story of the Porroineanu family does not end here. Eufrosina's father, who knew about the forbidden connection and did not tell anyone, lived only three months. He had time to build the monument at Bellu, so that his guilt would be known for hundreds of years. He soon died of a bad heart. & # 8222Tellers & # 8221 in Bellu Cemetery say he was buried with his daughter. Nothing is known about the fate of the mother of the two. The same goes for the man left alone after the suicide of his sister-in-law.

Faith wins

The one who would become a saint after many years was born in the land of Alexandria, when the emperor Theodosius the Little was in power. At the tender age of 12, the child's mother died and she remained in the care of her father, Pafnutie the Egyptian. Because, at the age of 18, she should have married, according to her father's will, and she did not want this, she took the path of exile. He left his parental home, disguised himself as a man, and eventually turned into a monk's convent. She chose the spiritual life, far from worldly evils, and got the name of the monk Smaragd, without anyone suspecting, even for a moment, that she was a woman. For 38 years she managed to keep her identity hidden, until she fell into bed, seriously ill. Coincidentally, when the saint was on her deathbed, one day, none other than her father, Pafnutie, came to the monastery for spiritual advice. He was instructed by the abbot to go to the monk Smaragd. And while he was relieving the grief of his daughter's disappearance many years ago, Eufrosina recognized her father, encouraged him, and asked him to return three days later. Then, in her last moments of life, she confessed to her grieving father that she was his daughter. Pafnutie was so deeply impressed that he decided to become a monk after his daughter's death.

The administrator is obliged to take measures to comply with the legislation in force

Eufrosina Anton (15 Liviu Rebreanu Street, block N3): The president of our association refuses to take note of the answers we received from the Federation of Owners Associations in Romania, saying that he is not subordinated to a federation. I was told that the cost of the intercom and magnetic keys is distributed according to the individual share and not the number of families as decided by our president. Who is right?
The Federation's response corresponds to the legislation in force, while the president's solution is simply a personal opinion that can be amended, including by the court. It is true that this federation does not issue normative acts, but it certainly helps to have a better knowledge of those issued by the legislative forum and by the Government, through ordinances and methodological norms. It should be noted that the interpretations & # 8222after the ear & # 8221, the pride that gives rise to abuse are promptly amended by the committees and the general assemblies, until the local administration intervenes.
Virgil Buse (str. Patulului no. 6, block 5): Some expenses that the law stipulates should be distributed according to the individual quota are distributed on persons. what to do?
To discuss with the members of the committee, to present the case & # 8211 with the law in hand & # 8211 in the first general assembly, to open a lawsuit or to address the City Hall of sector 3, which, among other things, has the obligation to guide and support owners' associations. If you had told us what odds you were referring to, we could have given you a concrete answer.
Ana David (sos. Pantelimon no. 237, block 65): In order to cover the expenses, I gave up the three-room apartment in exchange for a studio. But here, as in the studio, a lot is demanded of me. What to do?
If the administrator does not give you a satisfactory answer, ask the censors commission and the executive committee of the association for clarification.

PARALLEL REALITIES, in the series. The first episode: "Eufrosina, the dissident with the panties on!"

Eufrosina is not very interested in the political crisis. And so it doesn't really matter for his political future. It matters, she says, only to tickle the boss's pride. Who wants to show "the others" who the master is in this country. Get drunk with cold water. It's as if he's driving, Eufrosina grins contentedly. Which is also true because he, the boss, wants to get another parliamentary term. If she could, Eufrosina would burst out laughing at the thought. But since she was also chief, in the government building, at a directorate set up especially for her, she had taken a serious and preoccupied morgue. Her subordinates could not see her smiling!

Hmm & # 8230! Her subordinates! All a bunch of honeyed profiteers, all of whom got there after December 2008. She knows very well how they got there. Everyone, a nephew, a sister-in-law, a mistress, someone's wife, that's how the services were done in the party - I hire yours, you mine - on the cross. Thus, no one in that society, that is, the civil society, that eternal murmur and seeker of knots in the rush, had anything to object to (which is true, that they too had to be anointed from time to time with a dinner by the sea).

With this pack of scoundrels, Eufrosina was doing well. He respected them and liked to torment them until late in the evening, with all sorts of unnecessary reports. Not that he needed them, but he liked to see those "wells" and those "geese" sweating. This is how Eufrosina classified the motley and muddy world in the government building: they were "stinkers" and they were "geese."

She had about two or three protégés, who came on the "boss's" path, protégés whom she didn't even swallow, but whom she relieved of her daily and well-studied hysteria. For she knew very well who was standing behind them and cultivating them near her. Just to keep a better eye on them and secure their job and position in the building. After all, they were all the same, no one else. All with a haze of education, all passed in one form or another to the SNSPA. All newcomers who were a threat to her.

Lucian Avramescu: The industry of healers and ointments

The healer, a kind of archeological doctor, had the magical power to heal a spoon. The healing gypsy, Eufrosina, heals out of jealousy and brings home the lost man on another mattress. The new pharmaceutical industry mass-produces chemicals that alleviate any stab and repair permanent suffering. It is enough to read the leaflet of a one-liter bottle, blue, with a kind of Bordeaux juice in it, which costs a thousand RON and you drink one a week, at a guaranteed treatment of three months, and you rejuvenate by forty years if you have several, take out running a hundred meters as a world champion, bash others. Women who do not remain plump have children even without reaching a masculine neighborhood, and men with erectile disabilities have the strange difficulty of walking with the instrument too small for three days and three nights in a row, afraid of abundance. If, going out in the crowd, he risks rape!

My silence has joined me in many benevolent tips for which I am grateful. I was sent to an energetician in Predeal (I didn't go) who would put my words back in my mouth saying "Our Father" at midnight and drinking a glass of water of a certain kind in the morning. Seeing me skeptical, although I followed this advice from a distance & # 8211 I prayed as my grandmother taught me and I drank water like a camel in the desert & # 8211 called me to commute to him to put me words back with his magnetic passes in a month. I didn't catch the train from Predeal.

In Ploiești, a friend urges me, there is a private clinic where they put you in a machine, stay there for an hour every day and your bones are put back. With two of your writer's pensions you pay for the start of treatment. The rest, you also sell a slice of inherited land, the old house and you become a speaker.

If the advice by ear is not suspicious, as they have the delicate engine of friendship and mutual help, some of the ones that arrive on prescriptions from doctors make me angry. I am angry because my job as a journalist made me read with commission and fear some commission contracts between doctors and the pharmaceutical mafia. Because there is such a mafia. God, you're horrified to discover a damn expensive doctor recommended in all diseases, all, all, by the same commissioned doctor. As in the cucumber skit played masterfully by Florin Piersic. Any stab or cough tries you, the doctor sneaks to the middle of the list of doctors and the miracle "cucumber". Hippocrates' oath? That's it now, we just don't argue over trifles!

How did witches and witch gypsies multiply? Against the background, well milked, of the collective fear, of the multiple diseases and of this damn pandemic that does not allow you to do an analysis in a hospital that you return from there in the bag. Against the background of the universal rumble of the thought that makes any normal man a victim, an insect caught in bold that flutters its wings in vain.

Today, Saint Euphrosyne, the protector of women

Saint Euphrosyne is celebrated on September 25. Although many Romanian women bear her name, too little is known about her.
Saint Euphrosyne the Pious remained in the church writings among the women who wore the monastic robe. She did not reveal her identity, suggesting that he was a man, until her last moments of life. In monasticism, she was known as the monk Emerald.

She would become a saint after many years. But he was born in the land of Alexandria during the reign of Emperor Theodosius the Younger. At the tender age of 12, the child's mother died and she remained in the care of her father, Pafnutie the Egyptian. Because, at the age of 18, she should have married, according to her father's will, and she did not want this, she took the path of exile. He left his parental home, disguised himself as a man, and eventually turned into a monk's convent. She chose the spiritual life, far from worldly evils, and got the name of the monk Smaragd, without anyone suspecting, even for a moment, that she was a woman.
For 38 years she managed to keep her identity hidden, until she fell into bed, seriously ill. Coincidentally, when the saint was on her deathbed, one day, none other than her father, Pafnutie, came to the monastery for spiritual advice. He was instructed by the abbot to go to the monk Smaragd. And, while he was relieving the pain of his soul caused by the disappearance of his daughter, many years ago, Eufrosina recognized her father, encouraged him and asked him to return after three days. Then, in her last moments of life, she confessed to her grieving father that she was his daughter. Pafnutie was so deeply impressed that he decided to become a monk after his daughter's death.

Prayer to the Holy Martyr Tecla, intercessor for the forgiveness of souls

Saint Tecla is called the first martyr, like Saint Archdeacon Stephen, whom we celebrate on December 27th. Her commemoration is made every year on September 24, together with Saint Siluan the Athonite.

He lived in the 5th century AD, when the Holy Apostles were preaching the gospel to the world. He came from a family of rich people, but poor in the true faith.

He differed from other young women in body beauty and his thinking, for it was very learned and wise.

At 18 years old she got engaged to Tamir, a good young man. But when The Holy Apostle Paul came to her city, Iconia, and hearing his words of instruction, he understood how great the virtue of virginity is.

Her heart of love for Christ was so burning that she left her earthly fiancé, having to suffer many torments for the faith in her heavenly Bridegroom.

Hearing her mother want to remain a virgin and follow the Apostle Paul, she rebuked and beat her. It was then defendant by her fiancé to the governor of the city, who commanded to seize Paul and put him in prison, as one who changed the young woman's mind and made her a Christian.

They sentenced her to death on the stake, but God guarded her body untouched by the flames of fire. Leaving his home and relatives, he went after Paul to Antioch in Pseidia and she became a preacher of the gospel, like the Apostles, having the gift of the word.

But here she would be caught again and subjected to torment. A young ruler named Alexander, seeing Tecla's beauty, tried to seduce her into sin. But because he did nothing, he sentenced her to death, feeding it to the beasts.

But those who could not touch it by the will of God, commanded that after a few days to be thrown back to the hungry lions. But the animals bowed before himand, showing the honor I bring to the virgin.

They then threw her into a pit with venomous snakes, but here too God kept her unharmed to bring many people back to the faith. For And when the men of the city saw the miracles, they cried with a loud voice, saying,Great is the God Whom the Key honors!

Taking her out of prison and freeing her from bondage, many in the city received baptism in Jesus Christ. Preaching the gospel in many places and baptizing many people, he went to spend the night in a mountain near Seleucia. And many came to her, heal all the sick.

Angry at the miracles he performed, they sent to her three wicked men to mock her. But she praying to God, the rock in which he lived split and hid it from their faces.

This is how Saint Tecla gave her soul in the hands of her beloved Bridegroom, Christ, having then 90 years. And the rock in which she died soon became a nunnery (Mar Taqla) which can still be seen today in the village of Malula in Syria.

Over time, his holy relics have been scattered all over the world, including in our country, at the Patriarchate of Bucharest and at the Neamț Monastery. Many are the miracles performed by the Holy Martyr Tecla! For she saves all who pray to her from danger, trouble, bodily injury, and the eternal death of the soul.

Prayer to the Holy First Martyr Tecla

Saint Tecla, the first sufferer for Christ and preacher of the Gospel, looks from heaven to us, the helpless and burdened with many sins, who ask you for help and guidance.

That which thou hast served Christ from a young age teacheth the young men to love the Lord, and to keep his holy commandments. What you have suffered for faith and purity, be protective of the unrighteous, soothe the pains of the afflicted and support those who fight against temptations and passions.

What you have lived in the wilderness for many years and fasted in prayer and prayer, longs for heaven and holy zeal to the monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to the service of the Lord.

What you were exactly like with the Apostles, grant us to become apostles of God through our lives, deeds and words, so that we may be light in the world.

T u, what you prayed for the soul of the deceased Falconila and you persuaded God to deliver her from the eternal fire, be intercessors for the forgiveness of the souls of our loved ones, who have passed to the eternal ones.

He would help us, those on the turbulent sea of ​​this fleeting life, to fulfill the promises of Holy Baptism, to wash away the defilement of sins with tears of repentance, and to obtain the correction of life through virtuous life.

Pray to Christ to strengthen the good-faith people in good works, to give us what we need in this life, and all that is useful for the salvation of souls, to keep us from falling into sin, and to teach us to to live according to His will, that we may be justified in the unfading light of His everlasting kingdom, and that we may glorify the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit with all the saints for ever and ever. Amen.
