Happy Fettisdagen

Semlor“Semla”, in Sweden, is a not so sweet bun filled with cream and an almond paste. It is quite the treat and not sure how the Swedes keep their figure after this holiday. “Fettisdagen”, translated FAT TUESDAY…hmmm….is the Tuesday after Shrove Monday and before Ash Wednesday, and the last day before the Lenten Fast. Just 1 Semla, or, Fat Tuesday bun, should keep you sustained for the entire year.
