Maslenitsa


A few weeks ago we celebrated Maslenitsa, but I haven't had a chance to write about it! You can read more about the lovely Russian holiday when people stuff themselves with blini in this post from last year... What fun that was; we spent the holiday at Chekhov's Melikhovo estate and engaged in all kinds of traditional Russian folk games in the snow.

The girls really loved the celebration they had at school!

I only made blini ones on Maslenitsa this year. But I still have a box from King Artur's Flour for the King's cake. May be will do late Mardi Gras this year.

I love the red cheeks from the cold. Natalia looks so cute with her folk hat on.
