VASTLAPÄEV


Tere toredat vastlapäeva hommikut! Tegelikult mitte ainult tänane hommik, aga juba viimased nädal aega on alanud ühe ehtsa ja rammusa vastlakukliga, mmm. Kuigi liugu ma enam laskmas ei käi - ehk paari aasta pärast jälle, kui munchkin kelgutamisest juba aimu saab - tähistame me vastlapäeva ikkagi igal aastal ja mulle see komme väga meeldib. Samuti jumaldan hernesuppi ning leian, et veebruarispeab seda paar korda kindlasti sööma, küll aga ei ole seda meelt kõik minu pereliikmed, siinkohal siis need ''lõunamaa'' juurtega inimesed, kes sellest pühastki suurt ei tea :) Kusjuures, pühapäevasel õhtusöögil multikultuursete sõpradega tuli välja, et paljudes riikides tähistatakse vastlapäeva asemel pannkoogipäeva, kus süüakse siis rikkalikke pliine kalamarja, soolalõhe või hoopis mee või moosiga. Mina ei teadnudki! Minul on igatahes herned leos, las pannkoogid jäävad ikka pühapäeva hommikuteks ja teile soovin pikka liugu!


Good morning marzipans! Not only today's morning, but about every morning during the last week has started with a real stodgy shrove bun, yum. However, the last time I was sledding was quite a few good years ago - who knows, maybe in a couple of winters the tradition is back, once munchkin understands a little more about the snow - I still love the tradition of Shrove Tuesday and I always celebrate it. I also adore the pea soup that you have to eat on Shrove Tuesday, unfortunately not all members of my family think alike :) On Sunday, having a lovely dinner with some of our multi cultural friends came out that many nations celebrate the Pancake Tuesday at the same day as we celebrate the Shrove Tuesday and instead of sweet whipped cream buns, they eat rich pancakes with caviar and salted salmon or with marmalade and honey. And I had no idea! Anyways, my beans are already soaking, let them pancakes be for Sunday mornings and have a long slide as it's common to say in Estonia :) PS: Do you celebrate the day that marks the beginning of lent anyhow in your country?
