Here I am - watching - in our favourite place to spend the winter holidays: Lindvallen in Sweden. I used to ski but due to my very bad back caused by a car accident, I no longer can! It is such a shame, because I really loved it..... Luckily, I can still watch the rest of my familiy have fun on the ski runs, drink warm cocoa in the cold snow and eat hot buns with them at night in the lodge (wearing long johns and knitted socks.) And not to forget: buy lovely wooden birds!!
What I really wanted to say - before I got caught in dreaming about skiing holidays - was: where on earth is the snow in Denmark??Look at the trees in the picture - so beautiful and white of snow! Very Christmasy!! Now we are almost in the middle of December and here we still are - walking around buying Christmas presents in pouring rain....So grey and boring! But the weather is not going to spoil the Christmas spirit in our house. We have baked a whole lot of "pebernødder" - a kind of tiny, round Christmas biscuit. We (read I) put in just the amount of white pepper as written in the receipe - butttttttt, something went wrong. Our mouths were on fire after tasting them. At least they looked really nice! We need to make a new lot in a few days... How come it always goes wrong, when ever I take a lot of trouble over making cakes and food really well?
