Making fastnachts

Where we come from in Pennsylvania, yesterday was Shrove Tuesday. We would celebrate this by eating fastnachts. Check out this article from the internet: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art8521.asp

If you make bread, it's not hard to do but it takes most of the day!

Shrove Tues is celebrated by eating pancakes in the UK.

Maybe because Lent starts today and lots of people give up sugary foods.

The above link also mentions your Fastnachts, which look delicious.

That link mentions John Updike and Rabbit Run...John Updike just didn't know how to spell fastnacht because he comes from the same are (Berks County, Pennsylvania) where we lived!!
They didn't have spell check in the 60's ! lolol
