Hej Hej!

Every Easter we get a little bit Swedish with a visit to the local Swedish bakery for semla. Semla is a small wheat/flour bun flavoured with cardamon and filled with almond paste and whipped cream. Semla is a tradition which Swedes generally observe each Tuesday during Lent beginning with Shrove Tuesday and followed through until Easter. While we have no blood-ties to Sweden our hearts are filled with Swedish friends, stories and IKEA, which translates into common sense.
