LONDON FASTELAVN

Etter å ha flyttet ut for første gang er det selvfølgelig mye som er annerledes fra det å bo hjemme. På dager når jeg er vandt med spesifike "tradisjoner" fra hjemme, er det rart å våkne opp og forstå at du faktisk må lage tradisjonene selv. I dag var virkelig en sånn dag, når jeg våknet opp og kom på at det var fastelavn søndag. Jeg endte derfor opp med å bake ferske boller og vispe sammen krem for frokost, London-style. Fra hjemme har mamma alltid bakt boller til denne dagen, uansett om vi har vært i Norge eller Qatar, så det var både gøy og utrolig uvant å gjøre det selv til forandring. Jeg brukte oppskriften fra herlige Marlene for bollene, men endte opp med å bruke ferske bringebær istedenfor syltetøy for den rosa kremen. Nam!

After moving out for the first time, there is a lot of things that are different compared to being back home. On days when I am used to specific "traditions" from home, it is weird to wake up and realize that you have to make those traditions yourself. So today when I woke up and realized it was Fastelavn Sunday, I ended up baking fresh sweet buns and whipping some cream for breakfast, London-style. My mom has been the one doing this for as long as I can remember, so it was fun, as well as very different, to have to do it myself for a change. I used the recipe from lovely Marlene for the buns, but ended up using fresh raspberries instead of raspberry jam when making the pink cream. Yummy!
