Raspberry roll, rullekake med bringebær

Last night Terje and I had one of these rare nights when we were home alone. Both girls were out with friends, and we sat there like an old couple.......oh no, we don't feel old at all, though "old couple nights" can be quite pleasant. I can always dig myself down in piles and stacks of books, and Terje forgets everything else with tracks and fields on the television. In the afternoon we had dinner with the girls, salted muttons with grilled potatoes and vegetables cooked in a white sauce, and alot of cranberry (foxberry?) jam. We were filled up and in no need for supper, but since we both have a sweet tooth and wanted coffee, alot of coffee, after the salted mutton, I decided to make a sweet roll.Mix 4 eggs and 1 1/2 dl sugar. Add 2 dl white flour and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder.
Bake at 250C for 5-7 minutes.
Wet and sugar a piece of fabric and let the cake rest on this sweet bed. Add jam, I used raspberry jam made by my father in law. Roll the cake together.
Enjoy - with books, track and fields or whatever you like. And if your husband take a break from television you can always listen to Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón singing duets.

Lovely... I have always admired the Scandinavian sense of style -and maybe even the broader European approach to life, that makes the everyday bread and cheese look so lovely.. and that there just seems to be so much more time for things of family and soul and good food and company...something we Americans really struggle with, even those of us trying to lead simpler lives. Does the clock just run slower there?

Off to turn my weekend into just such a weekend...maybe dress up the table a smidge, garnish a dish...express my love of my family with homecooked food. I am always inspired by your blogs!
