Maslenitsa revisited.

A few weeks ago, we visited about Maslenitsa. I ran a little long with my description of the tradition.

Please indulge me as I reminisce about the bliny party. We started with a couple hundred bliny, wonderful fruit, whipped cream and salmon toppings, plus several bottles of Champaign. Finished the bubbly and almost finished the bliny.

Now I know why so many food groups are given up for Lent. As I mentioned before, the last remaining food group is vegetarian, but I’m trying to make the case to include chocolate. Isn’t a Cadbury egg vegetarian?
