Happy Shavuot!

Happy Shavuot - the Wheat Harvest Holiday!
I am celebrating with the customary dairy dishes, good cheese and wine.
Below is a recipe for my favourite dish for the holiday, Blintzes.

It sounds paganistic and jewish both, so I'm all for it! (love those festivities that keep traditions of a very ancient age).

Your recipe sounds delectable and will be taken to task, for sure.

Happy Shavuot, my love.

I love this type of holiday, and blintzes too...

Reminds me of childhood.
Comforting.

Hope Tamya gets her little belly-ful !

Happy Shavuot, Helg!
This holiday has pretty transparent pagan roots... Though many would not like to admit it. It's fun, nevertheless, and best celebrated in the region where it belongs to, when the wheat harvest is happening and is part of the community's celebrations; and when the little flies that live in the wheat stems come out after the wheat is chopped, and bug the hell out of everybody (they go into your ears and hair and keep buzzing, they're terrible!).

Happy Shavuot, Chaya Ruchama!
One last day to go LOL...
I love this holiday too! It doesn't quite feel like it, when it's not that hot outside... But I can use my imagination and pretend to smell the wheat and the first apricots and the green almonds turning into white, real "nutty" ones...
Try that Blintzes recipe - you'll love it!
I need to look for the one with fresh (unbaked) cheese filling. My kindergarten teacher used to make the best ever, I should ask her what it was!
