A Little Swedish

I have a cute story to tell you about baking with my 7 nieces and nephews. We always spend a day making Christmas cookies in December. We make & frost over 100 cookies and divide them in boxes: some for their house, some for Nana & Papa and some for dessert on Christmas Eve.

So when we occasionally make Valentine's or Halloween cookies, they are just for fun (not giving away) and the kids frost and eat cookies freely all day. As we were packing up one year, I heard one of the younger boys say that he'd eaten a lot of cookies and he felt "a little Swedish."
His older sister quickly corrected him saying, "Not Swedish...squeamish!"
