To Stockholm...

It's time for another cross Atlantic flight again. The cords are packed. It will be yet another crazy week in Stockholm, but this time I'm staying over a weekend – and hopefully will have some time to actually walk around – and not just too and from work or other appointments.

I really hope my fall coat is in my parent's apartment – or I might be cold next week. I can't recall if I left it in Stockholm last February, the last time I was there during "cold season". Probably. Oh, well – I guess I have to borrow one of my mom's otherwise until I can get a new one. The back side with having one foot in two different climates and time zones...

On my shopping list this time: a waffle iron! The Husband says he can rebuild a Swedish one to work in our US kitchen. So now I'm picking up a traditional heart shaped waffle iron!

Lycklig resa!!! Hoppas det är den sista resan på ett bra tag för dig.
Våffeljärn...så lätt och behändigt att ta med hem igen ;-)))

We have a waffle iron like that. I got it at Williams-Sonoma many years ago. They still sell a heart-shaped one though a bit different than ours.

Happy travels!

Annika - mm... om två veckor ska jag ju till dina trakter... Japp - våffeljärn är nu packad i väskan! ;-)

Christina - great! Is it as thin as the Swedish? The only onns I've seen in the US are makes more thick waffels (and now I'm really into tiny technical details here - haha).

Carlos - thank you! Well, home is really where my family is - and they are not here so I long for them. But part of my heart will always be here - this is MY city.

Jessica - ;-) ja, det kan ju helt klart vara svårt att leta från Sverige. Har du provat några av förmedlningarna som finns? Nu kommer jag inte på rak arm i håg vad de heter. Prova också via typ www.svenskamammor.com som har ett forum mm. Jag känner ingen just nu - men nu har jag ju din mail adress här om något dyker upp. Lycka till!

JaCal -- I've never had Swedish waffles, only plättar.

I do have one frozen, heart-shaped waffle left in the freezer and it's 1/4-1/2" thick. So, much thinner than Belgian waffles.

Christina - how great - that means you can actually find them here! Well, now I have a Swedish one and the Husband only need to convert it - and then we'll have thin waffles too! ;-)
