Possibly not, though.

OOOH
I am always happy to tell people that they're rubbish.

Or to provide constructive feedback, of course .

My left arm (and back) hurts. It's very icey here, so this morning I slipped and fell down the ten steps down from the front door of my apartment to where I landed on my back. Nothing is broken, so it could have been worse, but it does hurt a bit.

And I was carrying boxes of freshly baked semlor that I was very proud of how well they'd turned out. (Home made ones are so much better than the bought ones!) They were very good looking, but that was no longer the case after the fall. They still tasted pretty good though, so my colleagues appreciated it anyway, but it was disappointing.

Cool, Jelena explained to me what they are yesterday! I'm not too much into almonds so they don't really appeal to me but at least I know what they are and that they are a sort of tradition after carnival in Sweden .

But it doesn't have to be almond paste in between, it can also be jelly (usually strawberry). I'm not a huge fan of the almond paste myself (though, mind you, it tastes not so much like almonds but marzipan (which is of course made from almonds, but obviously has a very different taste)). It's okay, but I looove the ones with strawberry jelly in between

Not just in Sweden these (you know, most things that are a "thing" in Sweden are also so in Finland (or all over Scandinavia), like glögg etc.).

I'm glad you're OK, Trum. It sounds like the semlor suffered more damage! (I wasn't sure if you were being serious, since you posted in TMD! instead of in the Community Blog thread. )

I just feel more at home in this thread. My back has almost healed completely now, and the arm doesn't hurt much either. Unlike yesterday, I've today been sensible and taken care to let the arm rest as much as possible. The swelling has gone down too (looked slightly like Popeye yesterday).

Jelly? That just seems wrong. But the store-bought almond paste ones are clearly inferior to proper home made ones. What you do is, once the buns have cooled off, you cut the lid off, and then you scoop out the innards of the bun and put it in a bowl. Add ground almond, sugar and some milk and mix it together, and then re-fill the buns. Whip cream with a little bit of sugar, put that on the buns, place the lids back on and sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar on top. Ooh, that's lovely.

I know we had our differences ( Me trying to murder you might count as one of them ) but I still missed you, Thread™. Name:  tears of joy.gif

Size:  1.0 KB I hope you missed me too. I also missed al the wonderful chit chat regulars.
I've been very busy , but I hope to spend more time in the future writing in this thread.
