Result of my visit to the dentist

Once in a while you need to visit the dentist (“Folktandvården” as we say in Sweden). Today was such a day and that was a good thing for me. Apperantly I have what we i Sweden call “tandsten”, tartar, and “djupa tandköttsfickor”, a kind of problem with my gums. From now I have to use this:

  • Dentalfloss
  • Special gel for making my mouth a cleaner place
  • Special toothbrush for getting in between my teeth
  • Really nice pancakes with Lingonberries

    LingonPancakes isn’t really a swedish dish but it´s ever so nice on a Sunday. So today the swedish chef (read Håkan Gustavsson) made these:

    2 1/4 cups flour
    2 tablepoons sugar
    1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    4 cups milk
    7 large eggs
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine for frying

    Stir together flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Using a wire whisk, gradually add milk; beat until smooth. Add eggs one at a time; beat with wire whisk after each addition. Let batter stand 30 minutes (this will keep pancake intact when flipped). Stir again before cooking.

    Heat an 8″ to 9″ skillet over medium heat. Grease pan well using butter or margarine. Measure approximately 1/3 cup of batter and pour into hot skillet; roll pan to spread batter evenly. Cook util bottom is golden brown and top is starting to bubble. Using a spatula, carefully flip pancake and continue to cook until golden brown. Roll pancake and transfer to a large serving platter. (To keep pancakes warm until all batter is used, place on a serving platter in a 200° oven.) Serves 6.

    Serve Swedish pancakes with traditional lingonberry topping.
