Scandinavian cooking

I have been doing lots of cooking recently. And by lots of cooking I mean these things here, four more cakes, pulled pork for 32 people, pickled cucmbers, cardamom buns, scrambled eggs and lots of smørrebrød. Below: spinach soup, the dough and the finished brunsviger, and smørrebrød with battered lemon sole, basil and parsley dressing and prawns. I'll post some recipes soon.

The allotment is in full bloom at present, and the evening primroses are in season. 

Finally, I haven't been dressing 1940s (again). Because of the wedding I have been a little more occupied in pin curling the hair of the bride, mother of the bride, and a couple of aunties, as well as assisting as breakfast-maker and make-up artist for my youngest sister and younger cousins. My new fringe makes life a lot easier to manage. Forgive the rather stern expressions. My colour palette has been mostly black these past two days.
