Christmas is coming 

So it’s already december 3th. Only 21 days to Christmaseve and I’m not done with all the gifts get but I have made lussekatter (Swedish saffron buns) a lot of them. Maybe I should have a small christmasparty so they will end. I can’t bake or make food for 1-3 people I always make for a army!? I’m like my mom in that way,make more than necessary,but I think it’s a good thing….maybe….

Christmas is just around the corner

Christmas is just around the corner. i have already starting my shopping on Christmas gifts early as always. Every year I start in October to buy the gifts and planing everything. Why? I HATE the stress around Christmas! Every year the same thing when you look around,people in panic in the malls to buy the perfect gifts, get the most popular stuff and so on. For me that´s not Christmas at all,that´s just a pain in the ass.

I love to wrap up the presents in a lovely more like a disney way. Bake saffronbuns and christmas candy. The trick to get the real Christmas feeling and no stress with the gifts and so are to plan as early as possible ❤

My Gingerbread cookies and the recipe from 1946!

gingerbred

A little bit to early for some people but for me in the perfect time! I love this cookis and i love to make them from scratch. the perfekt winter cookies. It take time to mke them but I enoy the time. -about baking and cooking food I do everything and every single meal from scratch. I have made my own marmelad and jam to this year. Back to gingerbreads! How many of you guys are making these for christmas?  I did find the recipe in my book from 1946! And sure as hell the recipes from that book are 5 times better than the shit I  have find on the internet.

So this is the real gingerbread, how to make the real deal. Last year when I tried to make gingerbreads it became something that tasted and smelled like gingerbread but it dident look like it. Something did get really wrong last year. And I hade a bad recipe to.0gingerbred1

And here is the recipe:

350 g of granulated sugar

100 g syrup

130 g of milk 

1 tablespoon baking soda

2 eggs

2 1/2 hg butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon ground cloves

700 g flour

Take suger,syrup, butter and the spices and boil it togheter for about 15 minutes, and don´t forget to stir every minute. Put away from the stove and pour in to a bowl. Mix the eggs and carefully pour in the flour. Let the dough rest about 1-3 days before you use it.

Although October is not completely over yet , I have last week just wishing for snow. Started planning the Christmas baking early as this weekend ( ? !) And so is my boyfriend and I have already started making our own Christmas cards. I know we will not make it otherwise, and then there will be chaos and I want to avoid it. Better to start early. I will start with the gifts also soon just to get everything ready in time.I love October and especially  autumn . It is my season. But because there is always such a hysteria of Christmas each year , I intend to be completed before it kicks off in . However it can snow be happy to come in mid-November or the first week hahaha but no mid-November is the best. Then I have time to enjoy even more of Fall!Actually we have candlelights on all year round but as soon as it began to get dark out, we lit all the candles to make it cozy inside when we both love the candleslights. Now, when it is already dark when we return home, we are hardly through the door before we (read I ) has lit every candle I can find at home . What is missing is a fireplace.When we in future  will move to a house in the country , I have only one requirement of the house: a fireplace! Out on the plot , I would have forests, fields and meadows. Preferably near to the lake , but most of all I want my  own stable .

In Sweden it tomorrow All Hallows Eve . According to tradition, so you go to the cemetery and light candles at the graves and remember their family members who have passed away . In my family we go around to all the cemeteries where we have a relative and light a candle and then home and eat dinner with the family that lives . In the rest of the world celebrates Halloween for tradition and it is one that many Swedes have taken after but many young people have forgotten what all the saints evening is that is an ancient tradition in Sweden . For my part, I will light candles of my animals and at home for those who passed away and take a calm evening.

Den stora julgranen är här! Väntar på att den ska ta och veckla ut alla grenar så jag får klä den.Just nu får jag vänta till imorgon så jag kan klä den. Vilket innebär att jag hinner skaffa mig en stjärna till toppen,eller något annat fint att ha högst upp.Längtar mest tills jag har klätt den klart och lamporna är i kopplade.Då är det riktig jul på ingång.Det svåraste är att hålla dom vid liv (läs barrfria länge) man måste vattna dom konstant för granar dricker mer vatten än någon annan växt.

Har ni införskaffat er en julgran ännu? 🙂
