Overnight in paradise – Paradiset Sörmlandsleden

We started the day at Drottningsholms castle together with Peter’s relatives for some Easter activities. When they left we thought about how beautiful we think it is at Paradiset along Sörmlandsleden. So we decided to go back and bring our sleeping bags and stay overnight in one of the windshields. We didn’t know if it would be other people there but if it where we could either go a little bit further or go back home after we had eaten. So we brought up our backpacks and sleeping bags from the basement and ordered pizza, and then we took the car and drove away.

We wanted to sleep at the wind shield at Trehörningen and when we saw the cape we saw two other people there but they had a tent. We arrived and asked if it was ok that we also was there and it was no problem.

The other couple had already started the fire so we started to eat our pizzas.

When  it began to darken we made what we in Sweden call “Pinnbröd – Stick bread”. Do you have something the same? The recipe is as follows:
5 dl flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 dl water, cold

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Put it in a plastic bag or if you want prepare everything directly back home. Stir in the water and knead into a dough.
If you want your can stir in the water in the plastic bag when you are out.
Roll the dough between your hands into long sausages which are then spun around the pins.
Bake the loaves over the dying embers, all around, for about 15 minutes.
When the bread comes off the peg it is finished. Eat bread with a pat of butter in the hole formed by the pin.

The April weather in Sweden is very fickle so at some time it got very windy and some snow came but it was soon over. We went into our sleeping bags and had a very good sleep.
