Laskiaispullia ja uusia ideoita!
Fat tuesday this week after last weeks winter skating and nice winter weather -Kids had a "skiing holiday" from school!!
"In Sweden, the day is marked by eating a traditional pastry, called semla or fastlagsbulle, a sweet bun filled with almond paste and whipped cream. Originally, the pastry was only eaten on this day sometimes served in a bowl of hot milk. Eventually the tradition evolved to eat the bun on every Tuesday leading up to Easter, as after the Reformation, the Protestant Swedes no longer observed a strict Lent. Today, semlas are available in shops and bakeries every day from shortly after Christmas until Easter. The semla is now often eaten as a regular pastry, without the hot milk. The semla is also traditional in Finland but they are usually filled with jam instead of almond paste." (wikipedia)
I have started Shetland Triangle - does it look like it at all? I also visited Turku Main Library and found these beautiful books. I think most interesting is book of baby knits!!
