Happy New Year!
I hope you've had a great holiday. We certainly did. We really enjoyed spending time with my family from Sweden travelling around NZ, showing them this beautiful country.
We have enjoyed the sun and swimming in the sea, but it can really dry out your skin. Therefore I recommend having both Idomin and Helosan handy.
Now we are back and starting to plan for all the upcoming events and special occasions.
Shrove Tuesday - 12 Feb 2013
Fettisday (Sweden), Laskiainen (Finland), Fastelavn (Denmark, Norwegian), Bolludagur (Iceandic) – It is time to have a Semla/Laskiaispulla/Fastelavnsbolle! Please see the recipe for Semla/Laskiaispulla in our recipe section. (note this is slightly different from the Norwegian/Danish/Icelandic Fastelavnsbolle).
Don't forget to buy some Almond Paste/Mandelmassa, Vanilla sugar and yeast for your baking.
On the 14th February we celebrate Valentines Day - For me Valentine Day is a day of love hearts and chocolate! Check out Valentine Shop for more gift ideas – lots of chocolate and love hearts in there!
