Food Diary (December 10, 2011)
Breakfast: Rolled oats with banana, coconut, sunflower seeds and flax seeds
Dinner: Schweinshaxe, onion rings, French fries, potato fritters
Baking/sweets: Lussekatter (Saint Lucia buns)
Schweinshaxe or roast pork knuckle originates from Germany (don’t quote me on this). It is surprisingly easy to make, producing crispy skin and fall off the bone tender meat. The recipe is available here.
I didn’t make those Lussekatter, nor did I take the photo, someone else did. Lussekatter is a traditional Swedish bun eaten on Saint Lucy's Day, which falls on December 13. The buns are flavoured with saffron and has raisins. Quite delicious.
