La mulţi ani, România!

That’s a kind of “Happy birthday” to Romania, just that it sounds better in Romanian 😛

It’s Romania’s national day today! We celebrate the reunification of Transilvania, Banat, Crişan, Maramureş, Sătmar, Basarabia şi Bucovina with the Romanian Kingdom in 1918.

Below you can see a traditional dish, sarmale, to celebrate the day. They are made of rice and chopped meat in cabbage leaves and cream aside. Yummmy!
