It's Waffle Day!

vafflor 070325

Today is Waffle Day! And it's also the day when we switch back to normal time, from daylight saving's time. Hrm. That always sneaks up on me. I woke up really late today - or so I thought, 10 am. Little did I realise that it was in fact 11 am! But I quickly found out...

We had waffles with Tesse & Danne who don't have a waffle maker of their own. I didn't make my own batter this year either, as I'm perfectly happy with the mixes for this yearly event. (Yes, this is pretty much the one day per year that I eat waffles. It's not at all as common here as it is in USA, and it's definitely not considered a breakfast food.)

We like our waffles with whipped cream and jam - preferrably several types of jam. I served regular strawberry jam, strawberry-rhubarb-vanilla (that's what's in the picture), raspberry-red currant and cherry jam (my favorite!).

Aren't we actually switching to daylight savings time, with CET becoming CST (Central Summer(Daylight) Time). Same here in Ireland we move to Irish Summer Time IST.

patmooney is partly correct:
We switched from 'normal' time TO daylight savings time, but the correct abbreviation is CEST (Central European Summer Time).
CST is used in Australia only.

The waffles looked delicious by the way. Think we should start having a waffle day here in Norway as well...

Thanks for clearing that up! I have a hard time just remembering to set the watch, so I haven't really paid attention to what it's called internationally :) Here it's just "summertime" vs "wintertime". :)
