Gott, mycket gott 2010

Please start to look HERE at the table settings!

This is a long shot... for Photo Hunt, the meme is lick... but I do promise you will like yourself around the mouth after reading this post, LOL.

New and new recipes and new ideas, here is the dinner we had last night!

Butter-dough with many different fillings.

Cheese, cream with fillet (the best part from the cow - do not have the name), Garlic and a few different kind of herds - delicious! And very easy to make and only took 20 minutes.

And of course it has to sparkle when it was new years evening.

I found this interesting on another blog

'Havreflarn' are Swedish oat biscuits (sometimes referred to as 'oat crisps') which are truly delicious. Strangely enough, I got a packet of these from Ikea in Southampton, and I have no recollection of the price - I've tried looking them up on the net, but the only Ikea website that actually claims it sells Havreflarn is the Chinese one - so an 125kg box of these little beauties costs 10.50 Yuan!

The biscuits themselves are round (but not perfectly formed), thin, and extremely crunchy. On first bite, I thought they were merely 'OK', but it's the sort of taste that really grows on you, and before long you realise that the word 'moreish' is perfectly suited to these Swedish wonders. Actually, my presumption that they are Swedish comes solely from the fact that they are sold in Ikea - so they may well be from somewhere else - although I can't research that either as Wikipedia has no mention of Havreflarn - they really are mystery biscuits.

The taste is sweet, but not sickly, and is actually reminiscent of toffee popcorn - which is never a bad thing. The consistency is very crunchy, but due to their thin nature, they don't fall into the category of 'teeth-breakers'.

On the downside, Havreflarn aren't very absorbent, so dipping them in a cup of tea (as I usually enjoy doing with my biscuits) is not best suited to these particularly tasty morsels.

If you ever find yourself in Ikea, look out for these biscuits, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Due to their delicious taste and crunchy nature, they really are worth investing in - although going all the way to China to buy them may be a little extreme :)

Or try to make them your self like we did.
