We've been going to their shin-dig for about 10 years now (it's supposed to coincide with May 17th--Norwegian Constitution Day but any day in springtime will do). We all got together again this past Sunday, and it was awesome as usual. Anyone with any connection to Scandinavia is a given invite, and Eric and I both served as missionaries in Sweden. This year, there was an actual family from Sweden (he's studying here for a year), and a woman who served her mission in Denmark.
What I always make: Jansson's Frestelse (potatoes, onions, milk, etc.)
What I made for the first time this year: the Swedish cinnamon buns (next year I WON'T put them in ziplocs--they got too moist and the expensive pearl sugar I put on the top dissolved).
The marzipan cake is Robert's masterpiece that he makes every year. Behind that is an almond cake that I hadn't had since I lived in Sweden (made by a real Swede that came this year!!). This one lady would make "tosca torte!!" every single time we visited. Good stuff.
Anyway, it was a great time as always. Thanks Cindy and Robert!
