Here are some of the fun doins’ and some of the great eats at the Maslenitsa celebration. Make your reservations early! Being Orthodox is fun! Don’t we do cool stuff? A lot better than long faces and longer explanations of all the convoluted rules of fasting, I say. If you cannot party and smile… you may be something, but you ain’t Orthodox, that’s fur shure.
That’s what blini look like. Give me a dozen, right now! Ouch… I think I gained a dress size just thinking of these. These are accompanied by cranberries and tea.
Seconds, anyone? For them not in the know, the filling in these is fish roe… poor man’s caviare.
Don’t ya just wanna join these folks?
