Fettisdagen

Fat Tuesday! The last day to fatten up before the fast. In Sweden we eat semlor--bun filled with whipped cream and almond icing and dusted in confectioner's sugar. Sister Sofia, in a conversation, told me she would not be fattening up any time soon, due to her active neglect of cooking. "Today," she informed me, "I have eaten four pieces of toast and a potato."

I should have tried semlor when I was in Laos as we had a Scandanavian bakery by a Swedish family. The bakery was my second home as I hung so much there and loved the fudge squares and the cookies that they made.
