Sorry for the lack of posts! Me and my mother have spent five days in our wonderful cabin in Dalarna, about four hours north of Stockholm. It's been very relaxing, and we've spent our days reading, sleeping and playing golf. And eating - although nothing very exciting, we've stuck to very light meals. With one noticable exception. See the collage up top? (Isn't Picasa cool?) These are pictures from Rättviks marknad, a huge market that's held for three days every year in the small town of Rättvik. (About half an hour from our cabin.) We strolled around, looked at stuff for sale (ranging from hand-carved full-sized rowboats to socks and garden gnomes) and.. ate. Top left picture - the most wonderful waffle known to man. It was fluffy and vanilla-y, and with a gorgeous golden crust that tasted of caramel. Ah. Topped with whipped cream and strawberry preserves, it was heaven.
Bottom right - that's a kokosboll. Literally, that means coconut ball. (Not to be confused with something else that I need to blog about one day - negerboll.) It's a coating of chocolate and coconut, surrounding.. fluff. I can't describe it much more accurately than that - it's fluff. White, delicious fluff. Probably mostly sugar, eggwhite and maybe some gelatin. Mmm.
