Today it is second of Advent and I lighted my second candle!

2 Advent

second Advent

Second part of the advent poem:

“När andra ljuset brinner
är snart Lucia här
Hon bjuder oss på kaffe
och bud om julen bär”

Basically it says “When the second candle is burning, then Lucia is soon here. She invites us for coffee and bring messages of Christmas.” If you want to know more about Lucia stay tuned for post later this week.

Glögg tapas

Glögg tapas

Soon some friends will come over for glögg and pepparkakor. And I made some more treats for them: Gravlax, gubbröra (old mans mix), figs with chevre and prosciutto, roasted gingerbread with Gorgonzola and parmesan chip, and a parmesan crostini with bacon marmalade. The last one I must say I fell for the commercial when they serve it!


And of course I baked this morning some lussekatter (saffron sweet buns)!

Happy 2nd of advent!
Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
