Glad Fettisdagen (kan man saya så?)

Tomorrow, Tuesday, is Fettisdagen or Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Tuesday). Whatever your tradition enjoy your pancakes, semlor etc. We actually honored our Irish and English traditions on Sunday morning with pancakes and then yesterday we were invited over to Kaisa's for Semlor. A Semla, or Semlor (plural), are Swedish cakes that are eaten on Fettisdagen. Thanks Kaisa for the treats and for dinner (I had two semlor yesterday, they were very nice). Of course here in the USA, tomorrow is Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday). Hope everyone has a good day.

Shown below are Carina and Björn, with their three children, Oliva, Dorris and Rufus. They are our good friends, also from Sweden. Hope you all also have a Glad Fettisdagen.
