Eating Out

By eating out I don’t refer to eating out in a restaurant now, I’m referring to eating out.

In Finland first of May, May Day, or “vappu” as we call it, is a big deal. People study the weather forecasts weeks before — depending on if it looks good or bad, we consider our options, should we do that traditional picnic anyway or choose a brunch inside? You’ve got to eat do something special for the holiday, right? 😉 Most people defy the weather anyway and hold on to their picnics, whether it rains or snows. But that’s what vappu is partly about, a sign of summer: time to enjoy the outdoors no matter what. At the latest, it’s the time for those first picnics of the year.

Fritters are the speacial vappu-food. I made glazed doughnuts this year.
