A dark, blustery day here in the Grand Duchy. Perfect for staying inside and working on a training module for graduate teaching assistants that I hope to wrap up in the next week if not sooner.
Today's attire features a pair of navy corduroy jeans from Land's End and a sweater from Dale of Norway, given to my by my late mother for Christmas 2000.
The saffron rolls, Lussekatter in Swedish, are traditionally baked to serve with early morning coffee on Santa Lucia Day (December 13th) in Sweden. In a nod to her Swedish heritage, the Grand Duchess occasionally whips up a batch for us at this time of year.
The Young Master helped her this time around, and I think this is the best batch yet. Although I helped myself to one just out of the over, I can't wait to enjoy another with fresh coffee after dinner.
In a word, delicious.
