Lady Day Waffles

We celebrated with waffles this morning, just like last year. Interesting discussions this year too, and a little less graphic. The reason Swedes eat waffles on this day is that "Vår Fru" (Our Lady) sound very much like "våfflor" (waffles). At least if you say it quickly. And I guess back in the days people really weren't opposed to find an excuse to feast on milk and eggs in the middle of Lent... A pragmatic people, if anything, the Swedes. So a feast we had! I'm hoping for leftovers as dessert. Happy Friday, everyone.
