Mardi Gras, 2016

Fat Tuesday is here again! It has been a very short post-Christmas season, because the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox (Easter Sunday}will be early this year. It's been a very mild winter so far, but today we have a nice amount of snow, and the children have gone out and enjoyed it a bit. Here are Bilbo, Luke and Leia eating snow.

Leia has made her own little snowman. She asked me to keep him in the freezer for her. Sorry, sweetie!
Little Bilbo is two now! And thank such a delight. Although, poor little guy, he has a bad cold now.

We made our annual GF doughnuts. This time, egg free, too. I used real butter, though, and some nice quality gelatin for egg replacer. They turned out so delicious! These are like the cute, wonderful tiny doughnuts we used to get at the fair.

They are yeast-raised, light and crispy, and fried in bacon and coconut fats! Once a year decadence.
