Happy Waffle Day/Våffeldagen!

I wish I had known about this earlier today when I had a chance to actually eat some waffles. Next year for sure!

I felt it was my duty to immerse myself in Swedish culture today.

I had mine with blueberries and cream.

It's never too late for waffles. Besides, Sweden has this tradition of Annandag after many holidays, which is basically the thing we all want, a "second day." So just think of today as våffeldag annandag.

Love the idea! Though it would more properly be annandag våffla, if you're following the pattern of annandag jul/påsk ;)

Ah, thank you Joel! I never do say it right.

Ooh well, that's good news. Unfortunately I have no idea where I can get waffles around here.
