Time for a little fiesta


Some lovely pancakes K. made me recently, served with a dollop of homemade redcurrant jelly.

Well, apparently the spring officially began last week. However, it's been snowing in Estonia for two days now, and everything is covered with a thick, white carpet. As K. and I are desperate for some sun, we're heading off to Spain to visit the very lovely Ximena in Madrid, do some sightseeing and have lunch at a very special restaurant about two hours north of Barcelona.

Back in early April!

Hello

The pancakes look great.
Have you hear about Scottish Tablet? I have been making Scottish Tablet for years for family, but have started selling it on my website www.highlandscapes.co.uk. I'm not sure if it is just a scottish thing or if "tablet" is known in Estonia?

Enjoy your holiday!!

I can relate to the snow. But not the escape to Spain - so jealous. I'm jealous of your red currant jelly too.

Well, of course it was that restaurant :)
We had great time in Spain - so much to blog about!!

My Lithuanian grandmother used to make pancakes that looked just like this for me when I was little. I remember eating them with her homemade jam. By chance, do you have a recipe? I would love to make these for my children.
