Oh, yes, it’s Mardis Gras, oh, yes, it’s Mardis Gras! I love Mardis Gras, I love Swedish Lenten buns and no one makes as good Lenten buns as my mum. The almond paste is perfect and she always make some with less whipped cream for me since I can’t eat whipped cream. I’ve written about this before but Mardis Gras is just so Lovely it is worth mentioning again. When Mardis Gras is here you know that Easter is not far away and Easter comes in the spring, hence spring is not far away (yes, I’m aware that Easter is not the same dates every year but really, have you ever heard of Easter coming in the winter?). So, it’s Mardis Gras and spring is around the corner. What more could one ask for?
