It gonna be some busy days, especially the first day, tomorrow Sunday :)

As Mary's first event start already early tomorrow morning, I guess Mary will drive to Copenhagen airport today in the afternoon or evening. New York is 6 hours behind of Danish time and the flight time is about 8-9 hours.

Indeed. It's not without reason she is so popular. It's always a pleasure to see people doing their work with genuine joy.


Mary is in the company of both the Danish Prime Minister and other Danish politicians on the working visit.

Shortly before 9.00 pm. Mary arrived to The United Nations Building in Manhattan where she first held a short meeting with Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen.
A few minutes later it was time for the meeting "Global Leaders' Meeting about Achieving Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment".

And an article and a few more pictures from Billed Bladet, including one of Mary attending a casual evening party. I don't know where she finds the energy after such a busy day. Very admirable!

I've had it with this Nordic cuisine routine, where Mary acts as though she's the cook at home. You don't fool me, Mary! :rofl:


Indeed, what a busy day. I hope there will be some time for her to enjoy NY as well.

:lol:
Perhaps they should use Frederik more in that role? Not that I believe he is any better than Mary as a cook, but I know up to several ladies here on TRF who would like to see Frederik with an apron. ;)
And aren't men who cook sexy? That's at least what my wife tells me. :cool: - Hmm, :ohmy: come to think of it, wonder if she's had me all these years? :ermm:

Nice picture of Mary baking with the kids and their parents:
https://instagram.com/p/8J__YWMtr1/?...y=billedbladet

Mary visited the Nordic food festival in New York and baked with children from the renowned Danish chef Claus Meyer. And Mary certainly bring smiles on the faces...

- "Crown Princess Mary is an incredibly warm and present (comitted) person and it always throws a special energy to an event," Claus Meyer told Billedbladet.

Mary immediately began to create cinnamon twirls which chef Claus Meyer think was glorious.

*- "I was quite impressed with it. I had been told the program didn't involve time for baking and I can fully understand when there is 40 cameras flicked around. But she literally took the dough in her hands and began to roll out the dough and took her very good time to it. So it was yet another good experience with the Crown Princess."


*** I remember Frederik has said that Mary bakes with the children and that she especially makes some good coconut cakes (he called them coconut-something, can't remember the exact word) :smile:




*********

HQ gallery with 7 pictures (so far) from Kongehuset.dk:
Besøg i New York - Kongehuset

I have noticed Mary always uses good old-fashioned note-books and pencil. And not iPads or computers. It's also in my opinion the best way to learn and not least to remember what you learn.

At The Maternity Foundation event last night:

"(...)And a special thank you to our patron HRH Crown Princess Mary for being a tireless advocate for mothers' global health."

I wouldn't complain :tongue:
If I remember correctly, I believe Frederik said that while they were dating he was in charge of the cooking since Mary wasn't that great at it :whistling::biggrin:
And i think earlier this year, he commented about making pizza with the kids ;)

Thanks, Roskilde (and Polyesco).

I make those crocus cookies too from time to time.
- Especially when Lidl has a discount offer for three packs of ready-made cookie-powder. :tongue:

Frelinghighness 09-28-2015 01:05 PM

Do you know where she is staying in NY? The Danish consulate?

Tarlita 09-28-2015 04:36 PM

Maybe these food events are a subtle hint for her to learn how to cook. HA!
Muhler would it be a coconut slice you are talking about.

Don't know.

These are variants of "kokoskager = coconut cakes", with strips of coconut either on top or mixed in with the dough.
Like this:
https://bloggersdelight-dk.bloggersde...05-04-011a.jpg

Or, and that's even more popular with children - and dads - and uncles, chocolate muffins with coconut:

https://marieskak.files.wordpress.co...2-16-15-29.jpg

And the all time favorite at children's birthday parties. Chocolate muffins with chocolate or coconut, and no doubt served at M&F's home as well: https://www.madenimitliv.dk/wp-conten...014/04/002.jpg
Alternatively this more colorful variant:

So, are we talking about the same thing?

Daria_S 09-28-2015 05:36 PM

:previous: Muhler, these muffins look scrumptious. Now I'm craving some chocolate with a touch of coconut :biggrin:. It's good to see Mary out, and about in NYC.
