Happy Mardi Gras

Mardi gras !!!

Life in the land of the ice and snow

Today is Mardi Gras!  In Sweden, that means you have to eat one of these – a semla.  Believe me, it’s totally equal to partying in New Orleans in terms of how full and exhausted you feel after finishing one.  But it’s so worth it.

From visitsweden.com – “Semla is a doughy ball of sin, oozing a slathericious almond and cardamom paste with lashings and lashings of vanilla-whipped cream atop.”

I’ll trade that for plastic beads and hurricane drinks any day.
