Shrove Tuesday in Sweden

Semla, originally uploaded by Frugan.

With all the family history work I've been doing, I've been avoiding the Swedish line. Maybe eating one of these delicious looking buns for Shrove Tuesday would give me some courage to try....

From the Flickr site: "Around the world today people are marking Shrove Tuesday in various ways – in Sweden, the day (“fettisdagen” – Fat Tuesday) is marked by eating a traditional pastry, called semla or fastlagsbulle, a sweet bun stuffed with almond paste and whipped cream."
