Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I hope you have had a great week, a good end on this week and a really nice start on this new month,- March 💚. I have had both,- a nice week, a good end on this week and a good start o this new month 💚.
I have been working a bit today as well. I have been so lucky that I was able to change my 5 late evening shifts on my online job to 3 not so late evening shifts in the week, and afternoon shifts in the weekends 🥰. I should not be able to do that before in April,- but lucky for me I actually got the possibility and opportunity anyway 😊. Snd my teamleder at my online-job had a tiny little meeting with me today as well, and told me that they were very happy with my work and also they way I did answer the clients 😊.
After changing my shifts a tiny bit I feel a bit more like I actually are going to have a bit more weekends and evenings this month to use to “me and my time”. It wasn’t very much time for that when I did start my shift at 20.00 or 21.00 and did work to 24.00 or 01.00. Now I can use more of my time to blogging and writing, or meeting friends, painting or watching a movie and knit a bit, maybeceven a date if I want, – and soon I can do my exercises too in between here 🥰. Because soon my private “exercise- room” in my home will be available again 😍.
It has been a nice week, and a very nice end on this week as well as a good start on March too, – so I decided to bake something we call “wreath of leaves” as a kind of “celebration” for good days, good week and a new and good month too 🥨. It’s a pastries that is very similar the the cinnamon spins I made a few weeks ago, but there are some tiny taste differences 😊. And “the boys” / young adults men here in my home has actually been a bit “on the run” too this weekend so I have had a tiny bit time for just me 🥰. So the “wreath of leaves” will also be a tiny little “thank you boys” for giving me a tiny bit time on my own in my home 🧡. I actually really presage that 😊.
My recipe for the “wreath of leaves” is, as normal, a Norwegian recipe, from the traditional Norwegian kitchen, well,- at least the traditional kitchen in Norway 30 years ago 😊. It is, of course, homemade with basic ingredients, and sweet and tasty too 🥨. It’s not very difficult to bake and make it, it’s just the the raising of the dough which takes some time. The pastry should be raised twice so that it becomes slightly airy and light.
The recipe for a homemade traditional ” wreath of leaves” with a basic Norwegian recipe 🥨 ( for 2 “leaf garland”)
5 dl milk, 50 g yeast, 200 g melted butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 5 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoon vanilla sugar, 4 eggs, 1 teaspoon cardamom, about 18 dl wheat flour.
Mix all the dry ingredients together, heat up the milk to “body temperature” and mix the yeast into it together with the butter. Mix the egg together, and mix them together with the milk, yeast and butter. Nb- still keep the temperature if not the yeast will “die”. Mix it all together and put for “raising” for about 30 minutes. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel.
After the raising, Roll the dough into a long sausage of approx. 0.5 cm thick, and about 10 cm wide.
Fill in the leaf garland: butter, cinnamon, sugar, a little brown sugar and chopped chocolate.
Spread the butter over the dough, sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar, a little brown sugar and chopped chocolate. Roll the sausage into a long sausage, then place the sausage seed as a ring. Then, with a pair of scissors, cut equal parts (about 2 cm) and fold aside, every other time, the parts you have cut so that it becomes a wreath.
The “a wreath of leaves” puts on raising again for around 30 minute with a kitchen towel over. When it’s finish, brush the wreath with a room-tempered egg and sprinkle with some pearl sugar. Fry in the middle of the oven at 250 degrees for about 10- 12 minutes, until the wreath has a nice, light and golden color.
And then you have a tasty and sweet a “wreath of leaves” to serve your guests or just to enjoy on your own 🥰. The ” wreath of leaves” is perfect to have in the freezer too, and just enjoy a bit now and then when you deserve something tasty and sweet 😊.
I did made two “wreath of leaves” today, or more correctly, this evening 😊. Ine to the young men in my home, and one I’m going to split in two parts and give one part to my son in the middle, and one part to my daughter tomorrow at work 🥨. I hope they will be happy, my oldest son was very happy 😊.
Do you make or bake something more special food of any kind when it’s weekend then you during the week? In general I do, because I want to have a kind of “food- different” between week and weekend 😊. A bit more tasty, delicious and homemade food during the weekend then the week 😊. It’s nice to have a “tasty” different between weeks and weekends too 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊
