Summer Sunday

CIMG2346

For Straight Out of the Camera Sunday… Please join me for a Swedish fika = our common word for a coffee or tea break, usually also including something (sweet) to eat.  Fika can be used as a verb as well as a noun, by the way. And we do use it frequently! At least this time I had sort of ‘earned’ it by quite a long walk to get to café in the open air museum park… Tea for me, please…! And, in this case, a piece of pastry that I suppose in the English-speaking world you’d call a macaroon. (If you ever get to Sweden, do not ask for makaron(er) with your fika though – or you might end up with a plate of macaroni pasta!)

  1. That looks lovely! We call this sort of thing the afternoon snack. And it looks like others have the same idea that you do!
