Breakfast… my favorite meal of the day! We have quite a few breakfast recipes we rotate, but just a few saved for special occasions. The last few birthdays, I’ve done cinnamon rolls as a treat. This year for Allison’s birthday, I decided to try something new – a Norwegian “birthday wreath.” (What could be more appropriate, right?)
The recipe comes from my new Norwegian cookbook my aunt Carol gave us for Christmas. I’ve been excited to dive into it, and thought this would be a fun way to start. And, it was…
…Except that mine didn’t exactly look like the picture. In many ways it was delicious, but it could have been so much better. I can’t wait to try it again. I am glad I at least have a little experience under my belt for making a flaky butter pasty now.
After breakfast, Allison opened the rest of her gifts from Mom and Dad. (Her under-the-bed present was the Nancy Drew movie.) The big hit was color-your-own socks craft. Sisters got in on the action by coloring their own t-shirts. It made for a fun and busy birthday morning!
That afternoon it was mystery party time; pictures to come!
