Last year I mentioned how when Shrove Tuesday comes around I always forget to see about picking up some fasnachts (puffy donuts without filling and sprinkled with sugar). Some churches sell them as fundraisers and the fasnachts are available in most markets on this day every year. This year, I was running some errands it suddenly dawned on me that it was “donut day”! So I pulled into the market and was there late enough in the day to get some for half price.
The Mister did not grow up with fasnachts as a tradition, but a fast emptying box attested to their airy sweet goodness.
Another sign of the season are lambs everywhere. Aren’t they adorable? The ones pictured here did not appreciate my gawking and quickly ran off to find mama!
Don’t forget that the fundraising giveaway to benefit the Dueck family’s adoption ends this Monday on March 14. But you still have time to enter! One lucky person will win this quilted wall hanging/table topper. There is a $5 donation per entry ($10 equals two entries, etc.) through the Reese’s Rainbow link here, but PLEASE remember to leave a comment so we know to check with RR to make sure you are entered into the drawing.
International Readers outside the US may donate to win, but must be willing to fund their own postage.
