How did you spend the Carnival Sunday? I brought my daughter to the parade, but there was no way to dress her up. Se didn’t want the indian dress, I had to remove her nose painted by kitten and finally she wanted to remove the crown princesses ! ….. in short, she says that next year she’ll dress like a sword .. ahahahha, but that fairy and princess. Well she will be a little Joan of Arc!
Here is ready ready for Mardi Gras! a nice tray of baked and fried Crumpets!
The same preparation can go in the oven or fried as you prefer. Fried, however, are coveted!!!
