Cheers!

Cheers!

I visited the Christmas market in Västerhaninge today. Arranged by the homestead society Haninge Hembygdsgille. They served glögg (Mulled wine) and pepparkakor (Gingerbread cookies). Here you see me in the old Janstorp cottage with Anita Stjernström, one of the members of the society, she's also the author of a book about a (historical), murder story at Näringsberg. The dress that Anita is wearing is a regional costume from Österhaninge. I will show a few more photos from this event tomorrow. Cheers!

Oh, and if you are curious. This photo was taken by a woman who wanted to be known at the baker! She's the one to the left on this photo (link).

I am lucky to have a friend of Swedish decent who honors me with an assortment of Swedish cookies at Christmas. Among them are pepparkakor. She will not share her recipes.
It appears you had a lovely time with the bakers.

This lovely lady does NOT look like the author of a murder mystery. I guess you can't judge anyone by their appearance, although you appear quite merry, Steffe!

Oh, Steffe, those ladies just love you!
Skal! I want some pepparkakor med glogg och risgrot!
Nu ar det snart Jul igen!

Kate said...

I'll have one of each please, especially the pepparkakor (maybe several of those!).

Going to places like this is sooooo nice!

Nice photo Steffe. We know, you are much to busy entertaining the ladies to be taking the pictures too.

You must be very tall, or the ceiling is very low! I had glogg last year in the Swedish district in Chicago (US). I think it would be better with the cookies.
