Comments: Happy National Maple Syrup Day!

Let us forget all this political mumbo-jumbo and talk about butter and syrup. Here in certain parts of old Europe you may enjoy "kroppkakor" (Swedish) or "Fleischknödel" (German/Austrian). Those are buns or balls of very thick potato dough, filled with particularly colesterol and fat rich pigs meat. You boil them in ordinary (salted) water and eat them -get this- with lingonberry jam, hot melted butter and thick cream.All at the same time.

It is quite delicious, actually. After a few of those you cannot believe that there is anything evil in the world or at least you tend to go to sleep and forget all about it.

Oh, wow, those sound incredible! I'll have to see if I can find a recipe for them.

(Not to make them of course. No, no, I'm on a diet. I just want to think about making them. :) Honestly.)
