S stands for “semla” – better than sex?????!!! Absolutely!!!!!!
Because the sex I had lately = 0!
What is a “semla“ ??? – Some kind of bun, also known as Shrove buns (fettisdagsbulle) or in the version with warm milk, hetvagg. A of bun of light wheat bread with sweet filling with almond paste and cream.
The bun appears in different forms in Scandinavia and Finland and the Baltic states, and is associated with Lent before Easter, Lent, especially Shrove Tuesday, but also Blue Monday (blåmåndagen), when it is eaten according to tradition.
We can start eating them before Christmas those days, but I always have my first one on Boxing Day – and we eat them up to the end of Febr.
On Shrove Tuesday February 12, 1771 died our King Adolf Fredrik. This must have happened after he had eaten too much of, among other rolls. The bulletin on the King’s death is in any case, read the following: “His Majesty’s death has occurred of indigestion of hetvagg, sauerkraut, turnips, lobster, caviar, smoked herring and champagne.”
It was dangerous to be a Swedish King in those days *smile
Had my first for this season this afternoon – couldn’t help myself. Worth every calorie!!!! Could eat one or more every day …. they give me a lot of pleasure and GUILT!!!!
“I would rather have a cup of tea than sex.”
I don’t know really know any sexy Swedish tune … and I want to use this one anyhow!
