Yes, indeed: I am a Swedish girl! While my lovely Swedish cousin Eva does all in her power to help me with my Swedish speaking and my Swedish cooking, I must admit that this morning I had to resort to the Google translator to get out the simple sentence "I am a Swedish girl", and to Ikea for the Swedish pancake and waffle mix! Oh well, at least I try, eh?
We had a very fine walk on the golf course this morning: 48 degrees and not a golfer in sight! Barker was his usual well-mannered self most of the time, and so I was in a good mood and suggested that I tackle the Swedish waffles! I don't think I've made waffles since our daughter was still living at home (and that was always from scratch!), so it's 12 years! I'm surprised I could even find my trusty old waffle iron!
The mix made life very easy, but it was tough waiting for the waffle iron to heat up and then for the waffles to cook! But, boy oh boy, were they ever good! While the box suggested that the waffles be topped with lingonberry jam, I'm afraid that I was doing my level best to use huckleberry syrup!
We do have lingonberry jam........but it's at the condo, and we're not! Maybe next time, I'll incorporate a bit of prior planning into this foray into Swedish cuisine!
Have a great weekend!
