Snow had arrived during the night and when I woke up this morning the city of Stockholm was covered in white. This is what it looked like as I biked to the gym yesterday morning around 9 am. It all turned quite slushy as the temperature was right at the point of freezing and not below freezing.
At Steninge Caste you actually can't enter the castle but they have converted one of the larger additional houses that belong to the Castle grounds into a nice shop & restaurant. You can sit down and have a bite to eat or some coffee and a piece of cake. They sell a lot of the famous Swedish glass from Orrefors and Kosta. It is a great place to shop for gifts.
Lot's of beautiful glasses from the major and very famous glass manufacturers that are internationally known.
I am almost forgetting but I did bake the "Semlor" and they turned out really yummy! So me and C have indulged ourselves with these treats to make a perfect ending to a good January weekend. I read this in the newspaper this weekend. I a new word to be added to your Swedish vocabulary - "Semmelier", for those that consider themselves experts on Semlor.
I made the smaller version compared to the ones you buy in bakery shops. I think the smaller ones are even more delisious. We still have some buns left in the freezer so we can prepare more easily for the actual day, February 21 which is Fat Tuesday.
