Semla

Semla
Made by maj-lis
En semla, även kallad fastlagsbulle, fettisdagsbulle eller hetvägg (då den serveras i ett fat med varm mjölk), är en slags bulle ellerbakelse av ljust vetebröd med söt fyllning med mandelmassa och grädde. Semlan åts från början enbart på fettisdagen under påskfastan (fastlagen) i större delen av landet. Senare, när svenskarnas intresse för fastan minskade, blev det tradition att äta den varje tisdag under fastans sju veckor. I dag börjar bageritillverkade semlor säljas strax efter jul (ibland till och med före jul) och finns tillgängliga varje dag fram till påsk. A semla / fastlagsbulle (Swedish), laskiaispulla (Finnish) or fastelavnsbolle (Danish and Norwegian) is a traditional pastry made in various forms in Finland, Sweden,Latvia, Norway, Denmark and Estonia, associated with Lent and especially Shrove Monday or Shrove Tuesday. Today, semlas are available in shops and bakeries every day from shortly after Christmas until Easter. Each Swede consumes on average five bakery-produced semlas each year, in addition to all those that are homemade.

This one is actually taken with my old pocket camera. i didn't bring my Nikon today, but I'm very happy I took a camera with me, even if it was the old one, because the light was amazing. I have never been in Uddevalla before, it's a very beautiful place. Thanks a lot for your kind comments, invites and faves.

In the Bohuslän museum in Uddevalla - as part of an exhibition about the Tango of all things. It seems quarrymen from Uddevalla and Bohuslän went to Argentina at the end of the 19th Century to sell stone. And brought home the Tango.

This migh seem like nothing to you non Swedish people but for some Swedes (like me) it's pretty strange to see Lucia buns and cream buns at the same time. This was taken the third of January. Go figure.

Believe it or not, this is a kitchen lamp. Made from forged iron and wine glasses. Taken in 1997 or 1998, using my film SLR. Stripped the colours, as I felt that suited the picture better.

Our dessert at the Yerba Cafe in Uddevalla, Sweden. I had a raw coffee chocolate bite and Bi-Ma had truffles and ice cream. Love those glasses from the Yerba...so aesthetically pleasing.

Fantastisk skymning i stan. Jobbade i Munkedal och började må lite krassligt. Bilden är tagen när jag var i stan för att hämta en kompis.
