Convenient

I’ve always found that several small tables or like here, a set, are much more convenient to use. It ads more space when needed, and it’s flexible to move around as it suits while the other one is in place. You can clutter one & keep the other clean for decorative things.

Semla

Semla is a famous Swedish cream bun, an old-fashioned dessert that was originally invented & eaten on Fat Tuesday, the last day of indulgence before Lent.

It’s made with a plain wheat bread bun lightly flavored with cardamom & cut in half. The inside is filled with a layer of almond paste & vanilla-flavored whipped cream. The top is placed on the whipped cream & the sweet creation is lightly dusted with a layer of powdered sugar.

Traditional practice is that the top should be eaten first & used to scoop the whipped cream. However, the oldest Swedish tradition is to serve the entire bun soaked in a plate of warm milk – the best way to eat a semla.
