A healthier Christmas treat

En sundere jule-snack.

Happy 1st of December! At the expense of sounding super cliché – I can’t believe it is already December. My head is buzzing with so many things – school, musical practice, dance lessons, a ton of Christmas gatherings, smaller problems and not least the big project you make in senior year in Danish high school, SRP. I’ll get the thesis statement on Friday and then I’ll have two weeks to finish it. So sadly I don’t think I will be in the best Christmas mood until the 19th – so sad since I’m one of the biggest lovers of Christmas.

Glædelig første december! Med fare for at lyde super kliche – jeg kan slet ikke forstå at det allerede er december. Mit hoved er fyldt med alt muligt lige fra skol til musical til dans til alle mulige mindre problemer og hundredvis af juleaftaler – og ikke mindst SRP, der starter på fredag. Så det er slet ikke gået op for mig at det snart er jul. Med den SRP hængende over hovedet er jeg bange for at det ikke rigtig bliver jul for mig før d. 19. når den er afleveret. Super ærgerrigt da det er den bedste tid på året.

My friends use to tease me with the fact that I “don’t like nuts, which resembles brains”. Yep that is (sadly) a quote by me. But it is actually true. I would love to like walnuts and pecans, but I just don’t. But then I made this lovely autumn salad and then I figured that pecans and maple is the best combo ever. I love the mix of the bitter nuts and the sweet maple.

Min veninder plejer at lave grin med at jeg ikke kan lide ”nødder, der ligner hjerner”. Det er (desværre) et direkte citat af mig selv, men det passer faktisk. Jeg vil så gerne kunne lide valnødder og pekannødder, men de er desværre ikke minde yndlings. Men da jeg lavede den her skønne efterårssalat fandt jeg ud af at pekannødder og ahornsirup er den geniale kombi. Virkelig. Jeg elsker kombinationen af de bitre nødder og den søde ahornsmag. SÅ lækkert!

Despite the SRP I am determined to get the Christmas feeling back. So I’ve been lightning candles, baking cookies with my friends and I plan on putting up Christmas decorations real soon and eat a lot of delicious and healthy Christmas treats – like these wonderful cinnamon maple candied pecans.

Happy December!

Jeg er fast besluttet på at komme i super julestemning trods SRP’en. Så jeg tænder lys, pynter op, hører julemusik og spiser lækker sund juleguf. Som de her skønne kanel-ahorn.

 

Glædelig december!
