After all, that's what mangles are really good for (we did this in Germany all the time). I guess I was a bit rusty. One of the covers got stuck in the mangle and started to scorch rather badly (had there been a smoke alarm, it probably would have set it off...). I ran down to the apartment and grabbed a knife. Ran back up to the laundry area, and hacked the duvet cover out of the mangle (I had the foresight to unplug it first). The other one got stuck as well, but I was able to extract it. I just couldn't get the scorch lines out. I haven't touched a mangle iron since. They did a really nice job (when used correctly and the cloth didn't get jammed). The take away from this story, should I ever come to visit any of you who have a mangle iron--hide it.
Or the Duvet covers...

But at least duvet covers aren't nearly so expensive in Scandinavia as they are on this side of the pond. They are the norm. If you buy a sheet set in Denmark, it has a bottom sheet and a duvet cover and one or two pillow cases, depending on the size of the set.

There's an easy out for making the pound cake. Make a Bisquick shortcake. It's really easy and tastes great. The recipe is right on the box. Real strawberry shortcake, served warm with cold strawberries and whipped cream.

Hey, I did my taxes today, too. I got most of the stuff done a couple days ago and broke out the calculator and put it together today.
