happy fat tuesday ~

IMG_4638

I will, if everything go as planned, be celebrating mine with a well-deserved (not in the picture above) Stockholm super semla. And I hope everyone semla inclined will get a good such one too.

Previous posts and facts on the not so sacred but still very important old Swedish lenten bun tradition can be found here and here.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

That's really interesting, Pia - I love to find out about food in tradition around the world. We are friends with a half-Swedish family here in France and enjoyed the Santa Lucia celebrations very much! I shall have to look out for semlor now...

Hi Pia: I hope all is well with you. Life has been getting in my way of blogging, so I haven't been able to visit in a long while. I hope to come back soon.
