mardi gras/shrove tuesday/martedi grasso etc, all in all. THE FAT TUESDAY. perfect for a food blog, yes?
well in estonia it is called Vastlapäev, which i cannot translate, because i don’t know the word in english, basically A Day of A Shoe!?
and in estonia it is very little or not at all associated to religion. according to custom, we eat pea soup and sleigh or skate. FOR dessert we make those heavenly buns you can see on the picture.
they are basically like dinner rolls, but sweet and it is important to cut off the “hat” and fill the bun with jam and whipped cream.
for me it’s a lovely day, and strangely i had an accident yesterday so i was forced to skip school. that was perfect for hunting for the best vastlakukkel(shrovetide’ bun) in town.
actually, THE BEST buns i am going to enjoy tonight at my mom’s place, but still. they were nice
have a nice holiday, you all
