while my beautiful DD + three of my adorable grandkids were here,
we traveled to a little piece of heaven---AKA Astoria, Oregon!
And while we were there, I couldn't resist stopping at my FAVORITE bakery
and stocking up on some of fav Nordic treats!
I can never resist stopping and shopping here because I LOVE this place!!!
all very yummy! Actually this is a photo from sometime ago...
this time I bought a loaf of cardamom bread (that I shall start on tomorrow),
a whole bunch of my all time favorite Finnish pinwheels-
most with prune filling and a few with lemon filling!
another favorite of mine, fattigman pastries (hope I spelled that correctly)!
Yes, life was very, very sweet here for several days as I munched happily on my Nordic treats!
But alas--all good things have to come to an end
and today I bravely faced an almost empy box
And it seemed only fitting to do a tea for two,
because I had been wanting to do that for awhile.
And when it was all done and there were nothing left of my goodies,
I came my usual conclusion: I really need to go back to Astoria very, very soon!
Do any of you have a favorite Nordic or other national treat?
